Description

This Absinthe is our bestseller: Like the name suggests, Strong68 is a quite powerful Absinthe with 68% alcohol by vol. (136 proof). The recipe is based primarily on grand wormwood (artemisia absinthium). Other traditional herbs like anise and fennel are used to give this Absinthe a pleasantly fresh body. Nevertheless, the wormwood in the recipe gives Strong68 a slightly bitter taste. Therefore, we recommend to prepare your glass of Absinthe according to the classic French Absinthe ritual with ice-cold water and 1-2 sugar cubes (more info about the ritual can be found below).

Strong68 is as well perfectly suitable for Absintheurs who are looking for a classic manufacturing process. The Absinthe is a distilled spirit (instead of being an oil mix or macerate) and is naturally colored using herbs and no colorings. The wormwood is locally cultivated on the fields of the distillery in France, which guarantees premium quality. The alcoholic strength is as well set to the classic level of 68% by volume. Only at that level the plant-based green color of the spirit is preserved. Overall, this Absinthe is like in the old days. If you are looking for the real thing, Absinthe Strong68 is your choice. Nevertheless it is important to point out, that Absinthe is not a drug. You will not (!) hallucinate (sorry). Nevertheless, this Absinthe should be consumed responsibly.

 

How to drink Strong68 Absinthe:

You should drink Strong68 according to the classic French Absinthe ritual. You need an Absinthe glass, an Absinthe spoon, sugar cubes and ice cold water for this traditional ritual. This is how it works: First you fill some Absinthe into the glass (approx. 1 oz). Then you place the Absinthe spoon on the rim of the glass, put a sugar cube on top and slowly add water. You can use a water carafe or - even more professional - an Absinthe fountain for that. We recommend a ratio of one part Absinthe to three parts water. The Absinthe in the glass blends with sugared water and magically clouds from green to an opalescent white color. This is called the "louche". Finally stir the Absinthe with the spoon. Your glass of Absinthe is prepared!

A final note: We do not recommend to burn the sugar cube, this is sometimes promoted. But this is (1.) dangerous as Absinthe is 136 proof, (2.) not historically authentic and (3.) destroys the aroma of the fine spirit. Drink Absinthe the traditional like we described above. This is simply the best and most authentic way.

Not too bitter for my tastes
Count me as another one who doesn't find this bitter. Not as sweet as some, but with only one from the Alandia sugar cube two pack, I found it perfect. The quite obvious wormwood in this cuts the anise taste, which I like. I bought this along with the Alandia Verte, and to be honest, I like them equally. Sometimes I'm just in the mood for something more mellow -- but when I am looking for stronger, I find this to be excellent. This will definitely be on future orders.

Not at ALL Bitter!
Honestly, I don't know why every one in this review keeps talking about how bitter this absinthe is. It doesn't taste as bitter as the reviewers say it does. It is only slightly Bitter! It can't just be me, because I haven't had absinthe since I was 27. I am now 33. That was 6 years ago! Maybe my taste buds are just different. Being a pro, I set everything up right. I even only used one sugar cube pack of two from this store in each drink. Yep! Only slightly bitter. I mostly taste the anise. It didn't even taste all that bitter when I had my first glass of Stong68. If you haven't had Stong68 yet, don't let the reviews deter you from trying it out. The effects of this particular absinthe are awesome!

WOW!!
I just broke open the box and cracked the bottle open, and I have to say that this is a VERY good bottle of absinthe! The louche is very nice (although I used Simple Syrup instead of sugar cubes) and although the description warns about a "bitter finish", I really do not think it is all that bad! The whole experience from smelling it while the glass is raised to my face, to swallowing it, and the burn/not-burn afterward, is really a wonderful experience. I'm glad I took the chance and bought this! Highly recommend!
