In 1910, the poison-green drink was banned as it was thought to make people insane. Until then, it had been incredibly popular among the creative class that enjoyed the absinthe and its effect up through the 19th century - it was thought that the absinthe was slightly euphoric.
Today, however, it has been found that it is not the wormwood that necessarily gives an uplifting mental effect, but the high alcohol percentage.
Absinthe has its very own magic to be sought in the plants that give the spirit its unique character. The basis is the extract of wormwood, supplemented by anise, star Anise, isop and fennel. The wormwood is the very soul of Absinth as it contains the special bitterness thujone.
THE PERFECT SERVING
The perfect serving can be ELG ABSINTHE with a bit of cold water with syrup slowly dripping into the absinthe.
