The Absinthe Museum


Absinthe...the Green Fairy...La Fee Verte....
no other drink has the same romantic history!


Everyone who is interested in the history of the drink Absinthe needs to go check out their collection of Absinthe spoons. These are perfectly slotted to allow the Absinthe to run through the sugar.

It just so happens that none of the "Absinthe" bottles in the picture shown here are any good. If you're going to order some absinthe, get some Absinthe Edouard 72. The French have always made the finest Absinthe, that has never changed.

Better yet, make some yourself following the original recipe. That way you can be sure it isn't lacking any key ingredients. You will need to distill alcohol to make it properly, which is illegal in the USA without a licence (so they can tax you to death), so don't get caught. You know how the U.S. Government wants to squeeze every last damn penny from your lifeless body, right? if you don't pay your liquor tax, you are worse than a cold-blooded killer in their eyes.

Enjoy.

Wonderful, it seems like we found one of your favorite topics! Thanks for all the great info Osiris, and for pointing out the problems with the pic.

Don't know if it's a favourite topic of mine, but you need to watch out when purchasing Absinthe. 99% of the stuff offered as Absinthe is just alcohol with food colouring in it and little to no herbal content. I can tell you from personal experience that the "Absinthe Original" in the pic is TERRIBLE, no louche at all and mostly just a strong alcohol smell. It obviously has almost zero herbal content and the colour is not natural.

I advocate breaking the law and making your own! Yep, distill alcohol without a federal licence! All the herbs needed are still legal, you won't have a problem getting any of the needed supplies.....
