Dear Absintheurs, Strong68 is an all time favorite. It is the bestselling Absinthe of ALANDIA from the day it was launched (2002) until today (2015). People love this Absinthe for its strong Absinthe effect. Nevertheless you can find some harsh reviews in the net about Strong68. You can read that the Absinthe is “very bitter” and the Absinthe forum Wormwoodsociety even calls it “Another ‘Czechsinthe’ product with macerated Wormwood”. Why is this the case? How can a besteller have such a bad reputation…? …Continue reading “Absinthe Strong68 Review: Is it any good?”

Dear Absintheurs! We hope you have had a good summer with some relaxing chill-out times! We spent some days in Middle America and found this straight-forward advertisement for a local green spirit. We immediately had to think of the Green Fairy :-)! Green is as well our Absinthe of the Month: Strong68 is strong, meaning that it is distilled with an extra portion of wormwood. That´s why many of our customers love it. It is actually our bestselling Absinthe. Strong68 is distilled in France, 100% naturally colored and its taste traditionally herbal with a slightly bitter note. That´s why we recommend to drink Strong68 with one sugar cube. If you are looking for a powerful Absinthe full of inspiration, then Strong68 should be your pick! Interested in more news…? You can read the complete newsletter here: ALANDIA Absinthe Newsletter.

These Absinthe Brouilleurs were out of stock for a long time. Now we received new stock! This delightful dripper is an exact replica of the famous “Auto verseur”, originally produced by the absinthe maker Cusenier. It was a popular accessory in the mid-19th century. The dripper is fascinating, as the water flows over a see saw into the absinthe glass. You simply place the dripper on top of the glass and add water to the reservoir bowl. The balancing mechanism (see saw) underneath allows small amounts of ice water to flow into the waiting absinthe glass. As soon as the water touches the absinthe, you will experience the beautiful louche.
Dear Absintheurs! We at ALANDIA like to play around a bit. Therefore we designed the first ALANDIA Absinthe Nike Air Max ID Sneaker. The shoe is in our corporate colors black and green and has the “Fairy Wing Logo” at the back. Red is used to give the shoe a bit of contrast and glamour. How do you like it? Unfortunately it is just a prototype, but maybe our staff will get them to get uniformed 🙂 …Continue reading “Absinthe Sneaker Nike Air Max ALANDIA ID”
