Absinthe is an anise flavoured spirit - not a liqueur for which it is commonly mistaken. Distilled to, and often bottled at, a high strength - anywhere between 45% - 80% and sometimes higher. It is flavoured with botanical ingredients such as wormwood, sweet fennel, green anise and a possibly multitude of other herbs and spices. Swiss in origin it rose to prominence during the Belle Epoch era of late 19th / early 20th century France. Its association at the time with bohemian culture due to its popularity with artists and writers has cemented its lasting reputation and status as a ‘cult’ drink. The fact it was often perceived as a hallucinogen due to trace amounts of opiates has also helped re-enforce this status. It is traditionally enjoyed with a little water and sometimes the addition of sugar. Today it remains a popular spirit with bartenders and mixologists and is enjoyed around the world.
