The bitterness comes from the absinthes and is supplemented by the cassia. The alcoholates of aniseed, mint and lemon balm add finesse, freshness and aromatic persistence.
With its pipette, add a drop to cocktails, beer, on a sugar cube or simply in fresh water. See how extremely versatile Extreme d’Absente truly is. The ideal way to boost your energy drink too.
About The Brand
Absente, the first legal Absinthe recipe in the US market since 1912, is still hand crafted in the south of France using only the highest quality artisanal distillation methods and ingredients, including anise, star anise, balm, peppermint and a full measure of the legendary and notorious botanical Wormwood, also known as artemesia absinthium.
Absente, Absinthe Refined, can now be simply described as a modern version of one of the original Absinthe recipes from the South of France. It’s still the same aromatic, dazzling emerald green liqueur made from a combination of exotic botanicals. Learn more about our history here. Absente is technically labeled a Vert (green in French) absinthe and derives its unique color and flavor from botanicals. A method practiced and mastered by the French was to add regional herbs like sweet balm to the distilled liquor to introduce additional flavors, aromas as well as a green color to the finished liquid. In order to truly replicate this traditional Artisanal method, we incorporate this legendary technique when producing Absente. Absente can be enjoyed in many ways: mixed with water, or the classic mixture of sugar and water using a slotted spoon.
