This is a very special Czech Absinthe. With its 100% natural recipe, this Absinthe positively contrasts the usual Czech Absinthe brands. Compared to other commercial Czech Absinthe brands, no artificial flavors or colors are added. The wormwood used for distillation is locally cultivated by Kyle Bairnsfather himself, the master distiller of this Absinthe. Bairnsfather Bitter has a very low anise-level, therefore it is less licorice. Bitter stands for the maximum amount of wormwood.
Interesting story about Bairnsfather Absinthe:
Some years ago Johnny Depp visited the distillery. Absinthe was part of some of his movies, for example "From Hell". Therefore Johnny Depp developed interest in the drink. In our photo gallery you can see a picture of Kyle Bairnsfather with Johnny Depp, drinking Bairnsfather Absinthe out of an Absinthe pipe.

|Tasting Notes:||Coriander notes are in the foreground, licorice notes are reduced to a very low level|
A little hidden gem this, it has a nice Anise/liquorice taste, no overpowering but just right & due to its low 55% alcohol is very palatable indeed, crisp yet warming. It reminds me of a variant of Absinthe Amer, a simplistic smooth flavour at first then its complexity is released as you sip away at it. But it’s got a taste experience I can only describe as “Transparent mist” if drunk neat the taste dissipates in such a wonderful light way. The lower alcohol level has given this absinthe a much sweeter flavour.
Bouquet is very difficult to describe, a slight hint of “Chemical rubber” amongst other delights.
The colour is beautiful glassy green, reminds me of Absinthe Amer with a more distinct green than the pale brown.
Overall an incredible Absinthe that wins you over within the first taste, if you didn’t know you would have thought it another French masterpiece. The Czech Republic have entered the Absinthe arena with something very subtle & worthy of the price. This Absinthe doesn’t try too hard to be anything but itself, an honest Absinthe.
Recommended for those who are new to Absinthe.
Made by a reputable Czech distillery,this Absinthe doesn't skimp on using the traditional recipe and the original green colour is very distinctive.
Smooth and very enjoyable,I recommend this Absinthe with cold,filtered water and a one teaspoon of (preferably) pure sugarcane sugar.Unrefined.
I will take this opportunity to boast a little about my sugar,because living in Barbados I use the best sugar in the world with the best Absinthes ! Cheers ! M.F.
