Welcome to our Non-Licorice Absinthe section. These Absinthes are for those who do not like the licorice flavor created by the typical Absinthe herb "anise". We can recommend these Absinthes as well for mixed drinks, as they are less dominant in taste.
Absinthe Gold68 uses maximum wormwood for the strongest thujon concentration, but skips anise to avoid a dominating licorice taste. Instead, stimulating citrus notes are present, which give this Absinthe a pleasant body. Learn More
Gruene Fee is the German name for Green Fairy. This Fairy has a sweet non-licorice taste with a touch of cinnamon. Not a classic Absinthe, but perfect for those Absintheurs who do not like a licorice taste. Learn More
I greatly enjoyed this absinthe. The licorice flavor was much stronger than I anticipated, considering the anise was removed, but it mixed well and still had a pleasant buzz. It was euphoric without the fuzziness of other alcohols. I will still try to find mixes that hide the licorice flavor, but I look forward to enjoying more of this!
I've had a bottle of absinthe once before years ago and remembered the strong licorice flavor so I tried Alandia's lighter flavored version. For those who like the licorice flavor, it still exists but it's much more mellow. The overall effect is perfect, that nice high and low that Absinthe is known for. Besides the cost to ship to the U.S., I would definitely buy this or one of the other kinds again.
I'm just getting started but I guess I'm already an absinthe snob. Being new to absinthe and to try a non-anise variety, I ordered one bottle of the Strong 68. We tried this the French way with a little sugar and ice cold water and noticed right off, there is no louche. It had a nice flavor and was smooth but I, personally, missed the louche and the licorice aroma and flavor.
I wanted to love Absinthe, but the strong anise flavor kept me back. Gold 68 was my next option due to the lack of the strong anise that others may enjoy, but I couldn't handle.
It shipped to the US very timely, before I even expected it to arrive. My first glass of it was just amazing, and everything I hoped for. There was still a hint of that distinct flavor, but it was mild enough to be a pleasing take on the drink. Thanks for offering this great product.
Shipped to the U.S. amazingly fast! Besides a few glasses in Barcelona this is my first serious tasting of absinthe. This is a beautiful product, I am not a big consumer of alcohol, but I love the classic taste of absinthe. The smell is pungent but after a few sips it is mellow and sublime. Thanks Alandia!
I always try to buy this one and it\'s always sold out which says a lot about this absinthe! Luckily, it came in a set with 2 bottles of strong 68 and 2 of these for a great price so I was happy! Wonderful and yes, I see why everyone buys this one! I can\'t seem to wrap my head around why people complain about \"too much anise or licorice taste\" that is what absinthe tastes like! Anise is a key ingredient, one of the original ones as a matter of fact. Stick to beer so the absinthe drinkers can keep our absinthe in stock...;-)
Great value, taste and shipping came in two days flat! (Really dig the cd too!) Thank you Alandia.
I couldn\'t even finish the first glass of this I made. My wife, who hates anise, couldn\'t stand it either. Then I discovered the secret. Grape soda; this stuff hides quiet nicely when mixed at 2 or 3 to 1. The effect is undeniable. The only reason I give it only 3 stars is because I don\'t buy absinthe to hide the taste in order to catch a buzz. To me, the fairy is the icing on the cake, but I do like my cake too.
3 shots in i peek my head outside for a breath of air, icy and full of winter just to see the world in a more lucid sense ,all primary colors swell before me and my love for a world that could be? more evident .I feel good and cant believe a drink can amplify such good effects, I\'ve only a half bottle left and i feel like i want to keep it very safe . This is the second time I\'ve ever had absinthe and gold 68 was bought with the idea of no aniseed because of the people that would drink it with ,this device the amazing liquid all i feel is i need more,his has got something no other drink has, i have found my drink of choice and going back to normal spirits will be hard and very boring.
The drink in a format of 1 shot absinthe 3 shots water 2 sugar cubes, is fine not bitter but very interesting i tried ginger ale raspberry and apple lovely but i returned to gold 68 .Thank you Alandia for this privilege ! I cant wait to try more and see what art happens with this muse .
One last thing maybe go easy on the first try hangover is brutal.
