The Fourtifier Absinthe set contains two bottles each of our bestsellers Absinthe Strong68 and Gold68. Both Absinthes have an increased wormwood content and are therefore slightly bitter in taste. With their 68% alcohol they are the best souvenir for every party. Strong68 is the classic part in this Absinthe set, because it is distilled with the traditional Absinthe ingredients anise and fennel. This also gives it the typical fresh herbal taste. Gold68, on the other hand, is anise-free. Instead of being licorice in taste, it has a slightly lemony note, since orange and lemon extracts are part of its recipe.

Drinking recommendations for the Absinthes:

We recommend you to prepare Absinthe Strong68 after the classic drinking ritual. This means with ice-cold water and a sugar cube. Further down on the page you can watch a video of the classic drinking ritual. Absinthe Gold68 should be drunk with at least two sugar cubes. Since the focus of this Absinthe is on wormwood, it is also clearly to be tasted. Furthermore the bitter taste of the wormwood is not masked by sweet herbs like fennel or anise like Strong68. Skipping these herbs is the reason for the non-licorice taste of this Absinthe. Therefore the louche of Gold68 is also very weak, because it is normally caused by the essential oils of anise and fennel. To make it more precise: Gold68 is wormwood in a square, you can taste it without masquerades.

TIP: Since Gold68 Absinthe does not contain anise, it can also be used for cocktails/long drinks. E.g. Absinthe Gold68 mixed with Ginger Ale, Tonic Water or Red Bull, garnished with a slice of lemon or orange, depending on preference. You will see, these drinks are damn good...


How to drink Absinthe properly:

In the following video you can see how you prepare Absinthe the traditional French way. You need an Absinthe glass, an Absinthe spoon, sugar cubes and ice cold water for this traditional ritual. This is how it works: You place the Absinthe spoon on the rim of the glass, put a sugar cube on top and slowly add water. The Absinthe in the glass blends with water and magically louches from green to an opalescent white color. Santé, your glass of Absinthe is prepared.

revenge of the grumpy fairy
Being based in Australia, i gave to give you full credits for delivery speed and packaging.
The set is a great top up for my Absinthe cabinet.
The Alandia Strong 68 is a nice drop even to drink neat.
The Alandia Gold turns out to be a very matching base for my "Revenge of the grumpy fairy" : in a shaker with lots of ice mix 2 shots 68, 2 shots fresh lime juice and 2 shots fresh lemon juice .. ... the effect of this mix is similar to the Pangalactic Gargleblaster: " like being slapped in your face with a slice of lemon - wrapped arround a golden brick"
Overall a very good set. Been having lots of fun with them ;) Good price too. 5/5
I still can't believe how smooth this whole transaction went. My package made it to the states in a week and everything I ordered was unharmed. No hassle whatsoever. As for the absinthe. . . Wow! This was my first time trying it and the Strong68 completely surpassed my expectations, (effect and taste). I will most definately order from Alandia again... And again, and again, and again. Thank you.
Not at all what I expected, but has me coming back for more!
Being this was the first time getting my feet wet with absinthe, I spent a good deal of time researching on the internet the in's and out's of drinking this wonderfull beverage. I wanted to make sure it was safe, and something I would enjoy. Once I decided to try it, I checked out a few different places to order it, and found the price to be a little daunting for an unknown substance. I settled on alandia for having the widest variety and price range. I figured if I was going to pay the shipping cost, I would get get more than one bottle to try.
The Foutifier set seemed like the best jumping off point. After placing my order, I was more excited than ever to try the fairy, and did more and more research on the net, this time armed with a brand name. I became very discouraged after reading a "real" absinthe drinkers website where it was suggested the only thing to do with the gold 68 or stong 68 was use to clear out the drains in your sink. I thought I had made a terrible mistake and wasted the money on this first try. I became more optimistic when the order arrived in under ten days with a few bonus products included. I play pool for the american pool players association and had to rush out shortly after my order arrived. Couldnt leave without at least tasting it. Following the true ritual, I poured a small glass (less one ounce) of the strong69 and slowly dripped chilled water over a few sugar cubes. The initial aroma was very inticing. The first sip was a shock to my tastebuds. it was not all what I expected, and a far cry from something I woudl pour down the drain. The flavor as expected had a strong anise taste, and noticible though not at all unpleasant bitter aftertaste. I knew right away this was somethign I could site out on the patio with nice cuban cigar and unwind with. I finished off my glass and headed for my pool game. by the time I reached my destination, there was a noticible effect from the drink. The anise left a lasting taste in my mouth, my tongue felt slightyly thick, and there was a pleasant generally warm fuzzy effect. Since then, I have finished both bottles of the gold , and have but 1/2 a bottle of the strong left. I would be hard pressed to say which one I enjoy more, but I would highly recommend this to anyone wanting to a taste of something exoctic that still has a warm comfort drink feeling. I will certainly order this again as well as branching out to try some of the other products that Alandia has to offer.
Thank you for the great first taste!
A very satisfied customer.

ps. I would hower caution against having more than 2-3 glasses immediately before bed, unless you are up for some very vivid and often disturbing dreams :)

Let me start this Evaluation off with congratulations to the alandia team. I have ordered twice now with alandia, and every time I ordered I have received my package in around 6 days.

I ordered the Fourtifier Set on the 12 of Dec-2006. I received my package 7 days later on the Friday before, Christmas weekend. I tore into my package like a kid opening Christmas presents on Christmas day. I just wanted to have a little taste of the Gold 68. (I have never had anise free absinthe) Bam it was an explosion of flavor in my mouth. It had a very pleasant citrus flavor and a nice orange undertone, it was better then any review I had read.

Now I have had a couple of different absinthes before, but I had never tried the Strong 68. Because my courusity was getting the better of me, I found myself opening the next bottle, to try a shot of the strong. I would have to say it was better then of all the absinthes I have drank to date. I just love that flavor of anise!!! After feeling that nice warm burn down my throat and a wonderful glow of relaxation around me, I realized why I do not drink absinthe at work.

Based on Appearance, Taste, Delivery, Cost, and Ease I would have to give the Fourtifier Set and Alandia a 5 Star Rating!!!
