Is it legal to buy Absinthe and what is the most original Absinthe?
Yes, absinthe is legal and ordering it online is legal. But this was not all the time the case: The Green Fairy was prohibited by the beginning of the 20th century. This ban was active for almost 100 years. But then in 1998 the notorious liquor from the Belle Epoque got legalized in the European Union. The USA followed in 2008. As Absinth production is now fortunately legal there are as well various American distilleries producing the green spirit. Nevertheless authentic, real absinthe comes from Europe, especially from France and Switzerland. Here, the production according to historical recipes is legally allowed. In the USA the FDA has set stricter standards, they limit for example how much wormwood can be used for distillation. In Europe these regulations are less strict. In our store you can buy these original European absinthes. We offer a broad variety of premium absynthe (the old Greek spelling) such as the Jade products "Nouvelle Orleans" or "Verte Suisse" from Ted Breaux (he is as well the man behind the US absinthe brand Lucid). These are just two authentic products we offer for sale. In our store you can buy various brands from different countries, including the exclusive ALANDIA selection existing of Strong Absinthe like Strong68, Gold68, Gothica, Hamlet Hardcore, La Bleue Artisanale or Suisse Verte Artisanale. We stock as well premium brands like Heritage Verte, Epoque, Republique Vintage and Maison ALANDIA. You can also buy traditional absinthe accessories like an absinthespoon, glass, fountain, pipe, sugar or poster online in our shop. And some exclusive absinthe antiques are as well there for you to order. In detail the main categories of our shop are the following: Strong Absinthe, Deluxe Absinthe and Classic Absinthe. We also sell absinth without anise (the herb that gives the drink its licorice taste). The accessory section is divided into the following sections: A big selection of original glasses and spoons are listed at Absinthe Glasses and Absinthe Spoons. We also offer complete accessory sets with spoons, glasses and sugar. The famous fountains which are needed for the French Fountain ritual can be found in the section Absinthe Fountains. We sell glass and metal fountains, including the Classic Absinthe Fountain AAA made by Authentic Absinthe Accessories. Pipes, decanter and carafes and original Brouilleurs complete the accessory portfolio of ALANDIA.

Our new category is Gin including for example brands like Six Ravens London Dry Gin or Monkey 47 Gin from the Black Forest.

Both Spirits look back on a long history and are distilled using similar herbal ingredients, the so called botanicals. Gin ´s famous botanical is juniper, Absinthe´s is wormwood. But coriander, angelica roots or lemon peel are for example used for Absinthe and Gin distillation. Besides that we also sell some rare liquors like Mandrake, Perique or Gran Classico, a bitter from Switzerland.

Absinthe History and Absinthe Prohibition
InThe Green Fairy was banned in 1912 in the USA and in the early 1920s in Europe. But now, after more than 90 years of abstinence the Green Fairy is back! It is now completely legal to buy and drink absinthe. In Euprope it was legalized in 1998, in the USA in 2008. But why was it forbidden? Aside from alcohol, absinthe contains a number of different homeopathic substances which derive from the distilled plants. Although it depends on the specific recipe which components in which amounts can be found, thujon/thujone, a substance released by the wormwood plant, is of major importance. It is present in the essential oils of the herb artemisia absinthium (grande wormwood). The Absynth effect caused by thujon (and of course alcohol) can be mood brightening and stimulating. It feels like an activation of your body and mind. Today in Germany and other European Countries the maximum thujon content permitted by law is 35mg thujone per kilogram of alcohol. This limit is higher than in the USA. There a maximum of 10mg is legal. This is one explanation why the real thing still comes from Europe. However, absinthe is not a drug and stands for more than the stimulating absinthe effects. Absinthe is culture, history and a lifestyle of nostalgia. We are more than happy, that thanks to the European Community the production of this legendary and fine spirit is once legal. Our large assortment of original accessories and authentic absinthes give now everyone the opportunity to plunge back into the fascinating times of the 19th century!
How to drink Absinthe
We always receive many emails of customers asking how to drink Absinthe? Therefore lets give you a short explanation how to prepare and drink a glass of the Green Fairy. In the former times of the Belle Epoque many intellectuals and artists confessed their love to the Green Fairy. They met for the "Heure Verte", the green hour, in the bistros of Paris. This time was between 5 and 6 pm, right after work. For the preparation of a glass of absinthe you need a special spoon, an Absynth glass and if available a fountain. You fill the glass with a shot of the green spirit, put the spoon on top of the glass and add a sugar cube on top. Then you place the set up under the tap of the fountain and open the tap. The water drips onto the sugar cube, it dissolves and mixes with the green liquor in the glass. The Green Fairy begins to louche; she turns from green color to white. Your glass of Absinthe is ready to serve. Check out as well our vidoe here on this site. You can see in detail how the French Absinthe Ritual is performed. Famous historical Absintheurs were Toulouse Lautrec, Baudelaire, Manet, Rimbaud, Verlaine and Gauguin, just to name a few. Nowadays famous drinkers are Marilyn Manson and Johnny Depp. Marilyn Manson even has his own brand, Marilyn Manson Absinthe Mansinthe.
