The Absinthe Apocalypse is not only an outstanding design, it is also a high-quality absinthe!

The Absintherie Bourbonnaise has succeeded in creating a modern and stylish absinthe while respecting traditional techniques and ingredients. This is real absinthe.

The first high-quality spirit presented in a skull bottle was Crystal Head Vodka. Absinthe Apocalypse is much more interesting than a vodka could ever be though, with a rich variety of high quality herbs including the classic anise, grand wormwood and fennel.

This Absinthe captivates with its own character. An authentic Absinthe naturally colored, and distinguished by its subtle herbaceous notes. In terms of aroma and taste, lemon and peppermint are easily distinguishable.

The name Absinthe Apocalypse was inspired by a section of The Book of Revelation, also known as as The Apocalypse Of Saint John:

And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
Revelation 8:10

And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
Revelation 8:11

We'd like to thank Marc Thuillier for sharing his tasting notes:

Color: yellow-gold with green hues.

Louche: very pleasant to watch, turbulent, and 100% natural.

Aroma: lemon and anise come up front, leaving almost no room for the other herb.

Taste: it's all about freshness here, with the dominant citrusy notes, the well established and fruity green anise, and a final touch of (light) bitterness. Another summer absinthe! (see the Absinthe Française du Levant review).

Conclusion: it's very refreshing and pleasant, very smooth to drink (alcohol is almost unnoticeable), but while it's a top-quality absinthe, it's lacking a bit of balance between the various herbs in my opinion. Having said that, one bottle of the Française du Levant + one bottle of the Apocalypse and the summer season can start!

Quite surprised at the overall quality of this Absinthe. Didn't expect the complexity and well-roundedness of something that comes in a skull bottle. This is a top notch Absinthe!

10 Oct 2019

Magnifique et originale pour un cadeau ! La bouteille est sublime ! Je ne l'ai pas goutée donc je ne jugerais pas du breuvage.. :) Très contente de mon achat sur ce site et de la rapidité d'expédition.. Merci.

12 Aug 2019

If you like absinthe then you will love this. I usually drink antitoxin but this one has a very full flavor. if you're a absinthe connoisseur or your just starting out then this is a must have !!!

15 May 2019

Very pleased with product. Nicely done. Will be ordering again. Cheers!

2 Mar 2019

I thought the cliché bottle would contain an equally cliché and cheap absinthe, capitalizing simply on the "shock value" of the skull bottle. But I was pleasantly wrong! Absinthe Apocalypse is a surprisingly powerful, herbal, extremely drinkable absinthe that has become a gold standard for my palette. I would give it a 4.5 out of 5 if I could, but a 4 will have to suffice.

8 Jan 2019

Une très bonne Absinthe peu anisée. Elle offre cependant de belles saveurs à la dégustation. A recommander

5 Jan 2019

Cadeau de Noël très apprécié par le destinataire que ce soit pour la bouteille ou pour la qualité de son contenu. Je recommande ce produit.

24 Nov 2018

Not tried this yet, fantastic bottle design. It's a shame it did not come boxed. I have given it four stars for the design, will update review, when I finally get around to drinking it. Customer service is excellent thank you Stefanie.

6 Jul 2018

Excellente absinthe dans une drôle de bouteille. Je recommande vraiment de ne pas passer à côté...

25 Jun 2018

RAS, colis très bien emballé, arrivé comme prévu..

18 Jun 2018

I can see why this one is recommended to beginning absintheurs. I taste the citrus! Forgive me but I enjoy this one over ice with a wedge of lime at a 3 to 1 mix of water.

11 Jun 2018

Très bel objet en revanche pas goûté encore.
Donc à voir

12 Mar 2018

I purchased it for my husband, whilst I was away in Paris with my girlfriend. He never opened it, so, tonight, I championed the idea of trying it. I wasn't certain how to prepare it; mine did not come with a spoon. Thankfully, i LOVE licorice. I would go back to that delightful seaward hub and find the same lovely shop and purchase more.

10 Jan 2018

Bon gout, bouteille sympa, pas 5 étoiles car reçue avec cachet cassé au 3/4.

7 Jan 2018

Excellente absinthe qui mérite d'être dans le top des ventes, idéale pour découvrir le monde de l'absinthe. La cire entourant le goulot rend cependant le démarrage fastidieux et demande de prendre le temps de bien tout enlever et nettoyer pour ne pas avoir de dépôt dans le verre.

29 Dec 2017

Première fois pour moi, Et j'ai adoré les différents arômes sur la langue, le palais et la gorge. j'en recommanderai sans problème et en essaierai d'autre marque et type.

20 Dec 2017

Thank You Stefanie for your help in my order. My Absinthe Apocalypse order will be special gifts that are unique and unavailable in the states that will be long remembered.

14 Nov 2017

Very quick delivery considering it was an international order. It was a smooth drink and my first experience with absinthe. To me it tastes like liquorice which isn't for everyone but the bottle was cool and it was definitely worth experiencing.

4 Sep 2017

Very pleased with this product and will bw purchasing more soon!

18 Jul 2017

Très bonne Absinthe de qualité.
Tant pour le goût en bouche que pour l effet après absinthe

11 Jul 2017

Very satisfied. High rating with all products ordered.

11 Jul 2017

Une absinthe complexe. Un bel équilibre entre l'anis, les plantes d'absinthes et les agrumes. Elle se conserve mal après une année ouverte car la couleur vire au vert et les notes d'agrumes disparaissent mais la conserverez-vous autant de mois ?

16 Jun 2017

Je ne bois que celle là depuis des années et je suis toujours vivant

8 Jun 2017

Remarkable and delightfully surprised at its smooth Louche and flavor, I am a fan of this absinthe and would recommend it even to the most diehard fan.

It has an almost caramelly texture once properly prepared, and a very mild sting. The anise is pronounced but in a subtle way that is more of an after taste than an actual flavor.

If you are serving this as an accompaniment to food, I suggest it would be paired well with exotic cheeses and light protons, and maybe as a desert on its own or paired with a cool or perhaps frozen sweet dish.

I will be purchasing this again for Potrero War 2018. It is definitely a beverage that must be shared with good company among good friends, and the experience is made better when surrounded by individuals in authentic 1200s era garb :)

28 Apr 2017

Love the bottle, the package, and more importantly the flavor. It has been ages since I sampled absinthe. I will keep this bottle for the most special occasions. Thank you.

26 Apr 2017

I am just beginning to appreciate the many nuances of absinthe. My curiosity got the best of me and so I ordered this, and I must say it did not disappoint! I considered this somewhat mild on the anise compared to others I have tried, but you can tell this is well made. Nice louche, wonderfully aromatic, and easy on a beginner's tongue. I look forward to continuing my journey once this bottle is finished!

13 Apr 2017

As expected, delightful anise and strict bite, to round out experience.

12 Apr 2017

Ma première absinthe (j'ai 18 ans) ! Je n'ai point d'élément de comparaison pour le moment mais j'ai particulièrement apprécié.

17 Mar 2017

Quick delivery. Sturdy packaging. Perfect service.

16 Mar 2017

I've bought this absinthe above all for its packaging, name and bottle and I didn't like to waste money with other artificially colored ones on the market.
I've found a GOOD green absinthe with a great note of lemon, but it might be better. More attention to the lemon quality is my personal suggestion! Anyhow 4 stars for the packaging (I'm a graphic designer)!

1 Mar 2017

Thanks so much! I received it very fast and everything was gret! I liked the little "mint" even that was included in the order! Very thoughtful! Thanks again!

16 Feb 2017

I received my bottle of Absinthe Apocalypse quite a while after I ordered it, but nonetheless it is here. I enjoy the wonderful aroma and delightful taste of the Absinthe, and you can tell Thurmond is present from the black licorice like taste so it is not a fake. I didn't expect to get a free ritual spoon for free but you guys rock and are in predictable. I love it.

30 Jan 2017

They were great with their delivery. Everything came fast and well packaged.
There was only damage to the wax seal on the cap but its no big deal.
Very happy witb my order

24 Jan 2017

Very smooth with a great taste. It took longer to reach its destination but well worth the wait. Thank you dearly.

16 Jan 2017

eye catching bottle , freinds love the name ,
a good quality product for special occasions .

17 Dec 2016

Un mélange très subtile dans un contenant sublime. A boire avec modération....

9 Nov 2016

A great style bottle for a gift .

22 Jul 2016

I prefer the Swiss absinthes, my favorite being the complex Angelique. But I wanted to try a more "summer" citrusy variety. In that Apocalypse does measure up. The green tasting lemon is hard hitting quite effectively overpowering the herbs. I did notice a subtle after taste of hyssop. This darker green, yet natural color absinthe louches quite well.
In truth as soon as it hits the palate it is too citrus for my taste but it mellows out quite quickly. I almost think that it might be more acceptable in a summer cocktail than sipped straight. A thing that that would be an outrage to do to Angelique. This is not a complex or subtle absinthe but it was worth the price, but I will not buy it again.

30 Apr 2016

No reviews on this on yet, except for one person's shallow comment about liking the bottle.

Unfortunately that does not support the cause of the review. Enjoyable and quite different, this absinthe is definitely not complex but it does have its own unique flavor. If you are interested in trying a decent drinkable to say the least absinthe with strong lemon flavor, try this one out. Depending on your palate, it may or not be one on your reorder list. I happened to enjoy it to some degree, but find the more complex absinthes to be more interesting. But to sum it up yes, this is a bottle that is worth trying at least once. As far as the other skull shaped bottles offered on this sight that are clearly artificially colored and obnoxiously high proof, this seems to be the only one worth trying.

The French seem to make consistent quality stuff, so it is tough (although not impossible) to not recommend them.

27 Nov 2015

Une absinthe délicieuse. Parmi mes préférées depuis que je l'ai goûté. Pas trop forte, désaltérante avec un léger goût anisé et une bonne longueur en bouche. La finale est herbacée mais je n'arrive pas à trouver ce qu'elle m'évoque (une note de fenouil peut être).
En bref, une fois fini j'en reprendrai une ;)
N'hésitez pas et essayez la aussi vous serez agréablement surpris.

25 Sep 2015

I like the bottle. This is my first time, and I think I'll keep the bottle.

The Absintherie Bourbonnaise distillery opened its doors on May 17, 2011, just after the absinthe ban in France was lifted. The owner of the distillery mainly wanted to revive authentic absinthe recipes, and offer contract distillation to client's own recipes. Absintherie Bourbonnaise was established by absintheur Phil Fumoux who, before becoming a distiller, used to collect and sell absinthe antiques. He created the ‘Frenchman' range of replica absinthe accessories. Due to the interesting scheme of contact-distilling, is is no surpise that this distillery carries a very broad range of absinthes – from absinthes made of historic French recipes, to modern, new absinthes using unique and new herbs, such as bison grass – the Bourbonnaise distillery covers it all.
