Absinthe for sale at ALANDIA

Which Absinthe is for sale, and is it good?

Absinthe for saleThere are a lot of different brands on the market, as many distilleries have started to produce Absinthe within the last years. To orientate in the world of Absinthe you can say, that an Absinthe is different in terms of its production process. You can get macertaed or distilled Absinthe. You can buy as well green, red, black or even blue types of this alcohol made with wormwood. Additionally, the degree of alcohol and thujone can be different. Strong brands have up to 80.0% alcohol by vol and 35 mg thujone. One of these brands is the black Absinthe Hamlet Hardcore. But we have to mention, that thujone should not be your primary decision criteria when you buy Absinthe. It is not the major thing about this drink. You should respect and appreciate the deep culture of this very special liquor. Furthermore, you should drink Absinthe responsibly, as this spirit has more alcohol compared to other spirits (68% alc. by vol vs. 40-45% alc. by vol. in a whisky, vodka or rum).

Absinthe is not a hallucinogenic drug, despite its reputation of being so. Real Absinthe contains of course wormwood and wormwood can set free thujone, once it is distilled. But the amount of thujone in the drink is very low. What you will feel after 1-2 glasses of Absinthe is more the high percentage of alcohol. So don't expect to see pink elephants. This is not what Absinthe will give you. And also don't think that Absinthe in the 19th century had more thujone than today, this is a myth. Vintage Absinthe was chemically analysed and the thujone levels were comparable, sometime even lower than today. So to put it in a nutshell, Absinthe is nowadays as real as 100 years ago, and the effects of thujone are exaggerated. You should buy Absinthe because of its incomparable complex taste and its fascinating ritual and history. Absinthe simply is a legendary spirit!

How do I drink Absinthe?

You never drink Absinthe neat. To truely experience the Green Fairy, it is necessary to prepare your glass the traditional way. This is how the classic French Absinthe ritual works: You pour a shot of Absinthe into the glass (3-4 cl). Then you put an Absinthe spoon on top and place one or two sugar cubes on it (the best sugar cubes are the individually wrapped sugar cubes we offer for sale at our store). Finally you pour ice-cold water over the sugar to dissolve it. The sugared water blends now with the green liquor in the glass. You can use a water carafe or an Absinthe fountain for that. As soon as the spirit mixes with water, the green Absinthe begins to louche into a mystical white. After a ratio of one part Absinthe with three parts water your glass of Absinthe is prepared. You can watch a video of the classic Absinthe ritual with water and sugar below. As you can see, the liquor is already poured over the sugar cube. You can do this, it makes the sugar dissolve slower. Please check out our Absinthe ritual video section in our store. There you will see even more ways of preparing the Green Fairy. You will also find one video that explains, why you should never set your Absinthe on fire!
