Absinthe Gold68 uses maximum wormwood for the strongest thujon concentration, but skips anise to avoid a dominating licorice taste. Nevertheless Gold68 slightly louches when water is added, due to a well dosed fennel content. Furthermore stimulating citrus notes are present, which give this naturally bitter Absinthe a pleasant body. If you are looking for the perfect, non-licorice Absinthe effect, Gold68 should be your choice. No artificial additives are used and the alcohol level is set at a classic 68%. Therefore, Gold68 is suitable for the Czech and the French Absinthe ritual. If you like Strong68, but want an Absinthe with less licorice, Gold68 is the perfect Absinthe for you!
Important note in regard of drinking Absinthe Gold68:
We recommend to drink Absinthe Gold68 with at least two sugar cubes. You will see, the wormwood content of this Absinthe makes it bitter and this bitterness is not masked by sweet tasting herbs like anise as Gold68 skips this ingredient to create a non-licorice taste. The louche is also very light, as the louche is normally created by the essential oils of anise. To make it precise, Gold68 is not for the Absintheur, who is looking for a very complex Absinthe. Gold68 is straight forward: Wormwood is what its recipe is primarily about and therefore wormwood is what you will taste and feel! As this Absinthe is anisefree you can also use it for mix drinks, for example Gold68 mixed with Ginger Ale or Tonic Water and a slice of lemon or orange, depending on your preferences.
