The Absinthe that introduced a generation is back once again.
Distilleries et Domaines in Provence has been making Wines. Liqueurs, and Aperitifs in the town of Forclaquier, France, for over one hundred years. The location is ideal since the Provence region of southern France is home for thousand of hectares of herb, floral, and grain fields across picturesque rolling hills and valleys. The region has inspired artists for centuries. But it is all those herbs and florals that  provide the ingredients for their elixirs — of which there are dozens to be had.
OK… this is a SUPER interesting story. The word “Absente” means “absent,” as in not there. The original liqueur was an Absinthe. But when “real” Absinthe was outlawed in the early 20th century due to unfair hysteria over wormwood, they removed it from the recipe and changed the name to Absente… get it? The wormwood was absent. But then the laws changed back and now wormwood is legal again, so they’ve put it back into the recipe. But the brand “Absente” is still cool so they call it Absente Refined — Now With Wormwood.
The story alone is worth it, right? But it’s a traditional sweet verte Absinthe in the French style with grande wormwood and anise. For years it was the only one available and introduced a generation. Enjoy!

Ratings & Reviews
I enjoy this stuff, especially for the price point. Dripped water over sugar, and bottoms up. Not over powering, yet has some kick to it.
My first time trying Absinthe I had a preconceived notion that this was going to taste bad. However I was pleasantly surprised at how good it tasted. The best part however is partaking in the tradition and watching the reaction with water. Absente is also amazing and a necessary ingredient in Sasaracs and many other drinks.
Liked it. Not how I remembered it, but still very nice.
Still contemplating the effects vs. the flavor. Overall, Iā€™d recommend everyone try šŸ‘
Wow. I love the warm feeling. Great experience
