If you do not like the taste of anise in your Absinthe, you just have found what you were looking for. Absinthe Gold68 has a herbal taste, but no dominating anise/licorice taste. The Absinthe set has as well everything you need to perform the Absinthe ritual: Glasses, spoons and sugar.
Premium wormwood is used for Absinthe Gold68:
Gold68 is produced in the small French town Fougerolles. In the 19th century, Fougerolles was home of various Absinthe distilleries. And actually until today, the city is known for its premium spirits. Many distilleries look back on a century-long history, including the distillery where Gold68 is produced. It was founded in 1859 and still today the distillery cultivates its own wormwood. Every year in July the wormwood plants are harvested. This means the plants, which now have a height of approx. 2 meter (6.5 feet) are cut by hand and then dry for the next 6 months in a wooden hut. The warm climate in summer, and the cold temperatures in winter, are the perfect conditions to further enhance the quality of the herbs. Overall, this time-intensive and traditional process guarantees premium quality.
How to drink 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 fennel or anise as Gold68 skips these ingredients to create a non-licorice taste. Therefore the louche is also very light, as the louche is normally created by the essential oils of anise and fennel. 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 it´s 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 and a slice of lemon or orange, depending on your preferences.
