Absinthe is  very characteristic . This is a clever blend of absinthe, artemisia, green anise and balm : delicate, sweet and slightly spiced.

Absente is issued from the distillation of Artemisia Absinthium associated with the subtle blending of alcohol, mugwort infusion, star anise essence, balm, peppermint and anise distillates… With its  limpid and bright color, Absente was the first legal absinth liqueur containing thujone launched in 1998.

Absente contains 10 mg/kg of thujone.

Absinthe, nicknamed "green fairy" and banned in 1915, was authorized again in 1988. It is only in 2011 that its level of thujone (molecule present in the plant which, in strong dose, was supposed to make mad) is fixed at a maximum of 35 mg/kg. Very appreciated for its taste of wormwood and its green reflections, this alcohol seduced many artists of which Van Gogh, Baudelaire, Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso, Oscar Wilde... The famous tasting ritual is still practiced according to the tradition, by pouring water on the absinthe, through a perforated spoon supporting a sugar. Absinthe is made by macerating plants (grand wormwood, petite wormwood, green anise, fennel,...) in a mixture of alcohol and water, followed by a distillation. It contains between 55 % and 75 % of alcohol.
