This Absinthe is different. It does not use a traditional recipe, it does not claim to be made after grandfathers recipe and it does not want to be a French styled Absinthe. Why? Because it is a dedication to darkness and inspiration! With a strong wormwood taste and merciless alcohol degree, Gothica opens the gates to a new dimension. The Absinthe recipe makes use of artemisia absinthium, as well as other ingredients that are known for their transcendental virtues. The taste is fresh with a rose petal finish. When water is added Absinthe Gothica louches into a cloudy purple-black color. Absinthe Gothica has 80% alc. by vol, drink with responsibility, the Essence-of-Darkness is nothing to play with...
Do you like it strong, then try Absinthe Gothica with red wine:
Absinthe Gothica is a strong Absinthe, no doubt about that, but it has as well a nice note of rose petals. In combination with red wine you get a pretty seductive, euphorizing drink. You first have to fill the glass with ice cubes, then Gothica Absinthe ist added and you perform the Absinthe ritual with an Absinthe spoon and sugar. At the end you add a shot of red wine. In the following video you can see the drink. Beware, with the red wine it is super strong.

|Tasting Notes:||Various herbs and spices create a complex, seductive aroma with notes of roses|
This is VERY strong yet smooth when louched in the traditional way. The violet louche is quite lovely! There are floral notes in this not found in traditional blends, but they enhance the experience nicely. My guy (an avid JADE fan), even enjoyed it, although he considers this not a \"true\" absinthe.
The art of enjoying Absinthe should not be locked down into a narrow confine, it should be allowed to evolve. And Gothica is a firm \"Yes\" to the argument that you can deliver without sticking to a century\'s old expectation... perhaps one can exceed it.
