Which Absinthe is the best?
There are many varieties of Absinthes and therefore it is hard to evaluate the brands. You can have a look at our Bestseller Section in the shop and here is as well our personal list of fame:

2. Absinthe Suisse Verte - A perfect green Absinthe from Switzerland. Only finest mountain herbs are distilled.

3. Absinthe Maison ALANDIA - More complex taste than Heritage and Suisse Verte. An Absinthe for the Absinthe professional.

4. Absinthe Suisse La Bleue - Crystal-clear distillate. Tradition and quality at its best, smooth and balanced taste.

5. Absinthe Strong68 - The best Absinthe effect, maximum wormwood.

6. Absinthe Moulin Vert - Traditional French Absinthe with a complex taste, natural green color nice louche and stimulation.

Credit Cards can be blocked by the issuing bank because of security reasons. This can be the case, when you place an order with a high amount or when you usually do not order with your credit card internationally in the internet. If this is the case, contact your credit card bank first and inform them, that they shall allow the payment. Or simply use a different payment option like PayPal.

The maximum per box is 6 bottles, as this does not exceed the limit for personal consumption. Larger orders will be splitted in multiple boxes. To save on shipping we recommend to order 6 bottles, that´s the best buy and you are thirsty anyway ;-)
