Much maligned (by boring old politicians) and often said to have strange, psychedelic powers, in fact Absinthe is simply a deliciously strong (91.2%), liquorice flavoured spirit.

Crafted by steeping a selection of botanicals in wheat spirit; ingredients include grand wormwood, aniseed, fennel, coriander seed and bitter orange peel. Once the flavours have formulated, the Cold-Distilled Absinthe is vacuum sealed and allowed to magically boil at room temperature, meaning that all the freshness and vibrancy is retained.

Join the ranks of famous free-thinking/drinking bohemians like Hemingway, Wilde and Van Gogh (with your ears intact) and enjoy an after-dinner dram of the famous green fairy.
