Description

Hamlet, the tragedy by William Shakespeare, recounts how Prince Hamlet exacts revenge on his uncle Claudius for murdering his father. The gravedigger scene is well known, where Hamlet thinks about the commonness of death and the vanity of life, while looking in the face of an unearthed skull. With its unique skull bottle Hamlet Absinthe takes reference to this famous play. It is a strong Absinthe based on the empowering virtues of the wormwood plant. The coloration of Absinthe Hamlet Classic Green is all natural, meaning that its green color is exclusively derived from plants (chlorophyll). The Absinthe itself has pleasantly sweet notes, which is achieved by adding a bit of cinnamon and vanilla to the recipe. We recommend to drink Absinthe Hamlet Classic Green with one part Absinthe, two parts ice cold water and one sugar cube. Enjoy and don´t be scared :)!

 

Why do some Absinthes have a bright green color?

Absinthe traditionally is of green color. That is why we also call the drink the "Green Fairy". But if an Absinthe is very green, you can be sure, that it is artificially colored. You can only achieve a bright green color with artificial coloration. If you use the traditional way of coloration, meaning that you place coloring plants into the final distillate, you will get a dark-green sometimes yellow-green color. Initially, the Absinthe can be quite green, but this color can loose its greenish teint over time. Why? Because sunlight dissolves chlorophyl and therefore as well the green color can vanish. That is the reason, why many green Absinthes are bottled in dark bottles. If you have a clear glass bottle, like we use for Hamlet Classic Green Absinthe, it is important to store the bottle in a dark place. It should not be placed in direct sunlight. But, and this is important, even if the Absinthe looses its initial green color, its quality is not affected. It is a natural process that actually shows you, that you have bought the traditional, classic Green Fairy.

More than expected!
I bought this absinthe because of the skull bottle. yesterday i tried it and must say, it´s better than expected! The taste is fresh, not too overpowering on anise, in the finish you have sweetnes that reminds of vanilla, the absinthe is somehow creamy. It has a soft louche, if you use icecold water the louche is more intense. Overall it is a decent absinthe, of course not the most complex but you can easily drink it. And yes, the bottle looks awesome...

Argh!
Oh my God! Wonderful louche but ... this is my (alcoholic) mouthwash!
After the first glass, the bottle will remain untouched in the deepest dark bottom of my library, to preserve its "natural" colour.
