Absente is an iconic brand that embodies the rich history and captivating allure of Absinthe. With roots dating back to the 19th century, Absente is inspired by the infamous green fairy, a mythical figure associated with the mysterious and enchanting world of absinthe. Crafted using traditional methods and a meticulous selection of botanicals, Absente captures the essence of this legendary spirit. The signature vibrant green colour and the complex blend of herbs, including wormwood, anise, and fennel, create a distinctive and aromatic flavour profile.
Whether enjoyed in the classic ritual of absinthe preparation or used as a unique ingredient in cocktails, Absente invites drinkers to embrace the spirit of creativity and indulge in a taste experience that is truly extraordinary.
Absinthe is made by macerating plants (grand wormwood, petite wormwood, green anise, fennel,...) in a mixture of alcohol and water, followed by a distillation. It is a clever blend. Delicate, sweet and slightly spiced. Very appreciated for its taste of wormwood and its green reflections, this alcohol was a choice of many artists like Van Gogh, Baudelaire, Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso, Oscar Wilde and more. The famous tasting ritual is still practiced according to the tradition, by pouring water on the absinthe, through a perforated spoon supporting a sugar.
