In the late 19th century during the Belle Epoque era in Paris, the renowned Absinthe culture was at its height of infamy. Absinthe was the trademark drink of artists like Degas, Manet, Picasso, Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec and Oscar Wilde. To recall this glorious time, Grande Absente, Absinthe Originale is one of the oldest traditional Absinthe recipes from the south of France. Hand crafted in Provence like it was from 1860-1912, Grande Absente is made exclusively with the highest quality spirits and select botanicals from the region, including the legendary botanical Wormwood, also known as Artemisia Absinthium. Please drink with extreme caution!
A beautiful light green with clear shiny glints of yellow. The bouquet shows a subtle aroma of absinthe blended with anise, mint and spices. The palate has a round aniseed attack moving onto a well-structured feel thanks to the presence of the amoise, finishing with the fresh, spicy notes (absinthe, lemon balm and mint) which give Absente its length of flavour.
