How much alcohol has real Absinthe?
The standard alcohol percentage of real Absinthe is 68%. Nevertheless there are much stronger and as well weaker Absinthes available for sale. The floor is 40% the ceiling 89.9%. Alcohol is not the most important thing about the Green Fairy, but in a way it has an influence on the way how you prepare your glass of Absynthe. The classic way is the French Absinthe ritual, which is also shown below in our video. You take a glass and a spoon, some sugar cubes and prepare your drink, yes without fire! The fire ritual, also known as the Czech-Ritual, has a bad reputation in the Absinthe community. Because the fire destroys the taste of the fine spirit. Why should you distill with perfection if someone lights up your product in the end..? Therefore the fire ritual is if at all, only suitable for lower quality absinthes. Below you find a list of Absinthes with different alcohol degrees. The strongest, Hamlet Hardcore has 80%, trust, us, that is enough. Hamlet is not distilled, it is a macerated Absinthe, therefore the production is not that time-intensive and the price is lower in comparison to Maison ALANDIA. If you want to have a premium Absinthe then get yoursef a bottle of Maison ALANDIA. Our bestseller is actually Strong68, this is a strong Absinthe in terms of wormwood. It is distilled, but with less herbs than Maison ALANDIA.
What is the effect of real Absinthe?
If you drink absinthe you will experience, that it has a different effect in comparison to regular alcohol like beer, champagne or even whiskey. This is of course partly a result of the high alcohol percentage of the drink, but as well the result of the herbal ingredients. All of the "botanicals" have some qualities, have in mind that most of the herbs used for distilling an Absinthe are ingredients that are also used for mmedical purposes (e.g. fennel, anise, chamomille etc.). Therefore the inspiring effect of the drink is a mix of the buzz from alcohol and the buzz from the essential oils of the herbs. The ingredient that gave Absinthe its name is wormwood in lat. artemisia absinthium.The essential oil of the wormwood plant contains thujon or thujone. An ingredient that is regarded as toxic. But Absinthe got legalized, because modern analysis and test showed that the amount of thujone you consume with a glass of the green spirit does not harm your nerves or your health. Nevertheless, part of the Absinthe effect is also a result of the contained thujone in this spirit. But Absinthe is NOT A DRUG. We have to write it in capital letters, because there are so many misconceptions around...
Where can I buy real Absinthe online?
You can buy real Absinthe online at ALANDIA: The Absinthe store ALANDIA was founded in 2001, you can say we are the first movers, right after Absinthe got legalized in the European Union in 1998. Pretty soon we started to produce as well different Absinthes according to historical recipes. Our portfolio ranges from premium Absinthe distilled in France, to more extraordinary Absinthes, focusing on extraordinary packaging, like Hamlet Hardcore. ALANDIA serves the Absinthe Community since 2001 and we are very proud of it... ALANDIA also recently launched a premium Gin, it is called Six Ravens London Dry Gin. Absinthe and Gin have a lot in common, as bothh are distillates, where botanicals are redistilled in high proof alcohol. And both spirits have a long history and cultural heritage.
