Very herbaceous, the Bairnsfather Bitter is an entirely natural Czech absinthe. It contains fennel, coriander and other herbs and spices. The absinthe Bairnsfather Bitter is entirely handmade, from the maceration with alcohol and filtration, to the bottle filling and labeling. Its very green color is obtained naturally from a long maceration of herbs. Very low in anise, very herbaceous, and very bitter, that's what our customers claims about the Bairnsfather Bitter.

Did you know?

- As it is a custom in the Czech Republic, the absinthe Bairnsfather Bitter contains only very little anise. That is why the addition of water provokes no louche action. It is also the reason why we classified this absinthe in the “anise free” category.

- The absinthe Bairnsfather is the subsitute of the absinthe Excelsior Edition Absinthe created by Mr Martin Sebor. The latter was never commercialised because of the loss of its creator.

Serving Suggestion

- At first, savour your Bairnsfather Bitter with half a piece of sugar. Then, add more or less, according to your taste.

- For one measure of absinthe (3cl), add 2 to measures of fresh water.

Love it! A classic for me for over 15 years now. I really enjoy this macerated absinthe. The bitterness clenches your brain.

31 Oct 2019

3 "double" shots, is a perfect buzz. 4, or more and it's blackout city: one is just as likely to get lucky, as get in a fight. regardless, a great time. every bottle has a story. sometimes, your ocifer du jour, will, too. great for fight clubs, temporary amnesia... that sorta thing. we've tried many brands, from many countries. this one's our fav, though there is something to be said for the ulex house's unlisted 300+mg... unlabled, rocket fuel! it's a shame this site doesn't put it on sale, but a couple times a year. I'd have ordered my seasonal 6 bottles, by now, if I'd seen, or heard of a deal on em, by now. looks like i won't be gettin em, for xmas, due to this... we'll see. just not worth my time to hunt for some "easter thing" ,AGAIN.

Outstanding non traditional absirnthe. One of my favirite SlovakIan absinthe although there is no anise it still has a Simi thick cloudy apperiance after the introduction on 3 parts cold water . A very refreshing drink especially for the cost. PROVST

Good flavor for beginner and expert alike. An unique flavor very refreshing but do not underestimate. Is till a bitterspiritlouche and the effects are wonderful.

I don't see many good reviews of this absinthe, but it is one of my favorites. It is, as noted on the label, bitter. It is also made with the macerate so it is very much about the wormwood. She isn't the pretty girl in the room; she's the strong and capable one.

30 Oct 2016

Finishing up a bottle of this at the moment, so I decided I might as well review it. I've ordered Bairnsfather before and I'll keep on buying it when funds are low. For the price to quantity ratio it's the best absinthe on the website. It's very bitter due to the wormwood, however complements the sweetness of prosecco very well. For wormwood lovers.

27 Jul 2015

Un verre à Whisky, plein de glaçons, et cette absinthe à ras les glaçons . Il n' y a rien de plus vrai !

27 Nov 2012

This is the only absinthe I buy anymore as it has the best 'absinthe/wormwood effect' in combination with the taste (tried about 16 different varieties). They used to make a low alcohol content Absinthe Abisinthe Amer (52 or 45??), but I can't seem to find it anymore, so now it's just Bairnsfather Bitter all the way! Also, as of right now, absinthes.com has the best price when you factor in the free shipping (speaking from the US).

12 Mar 2012

I have to say this is a reorder each time. This is a great bitter and has less anise. If you put ice in your glass and pour the Bairnsfather in, watch it louche at the bottom of the glass and then pour ever so slowly your ice cold water. It is ready to enjoy. Repeat and enjoy again. BRAVO!!

12 Mar 2012

Ich muss sagen, dass das jedes Mal eine Neubestellung wert ist! Ein gutes Maß an Bitterkeit und weniger Anis als gewöhnlich. Wenn du Eiswürfel in dein Glas gibst und Bairnsfather darüber träufelst, kannst du den Louche-Effekt am Boden des Glases beobachten- und dann gieß so langsam wie nur möglich eiskaltes Wasser darüber. Jetzt nur noch genießen. Wiederholen und wieder genißen. Bravo!

2 Apr 2011

If you are buying this one because you are looking for an anise free absinthe, then don't stray away thinking it just might be too bitter, because its not too bitter. It has more focus on the bitter side, but it is well balanced and enjoyable.

It actually is a bit complex and sophisticated, and its aroma packs a punch and is intriguing at the same time.

I am very happy that I ordered this one... : )

21 Mar 2010

Une bonne absinthe, sans chichi, elle a cette particularité d'appeler sans cesse à se resservir... A moins que ce ne soit mon goût immodéré des bonnes choses?

13 Feb 2010

Not too much anise, but... very herbacieus (?) It's absinthe for every day, very slowly louche, nice smells...and bitter :)

9 Feb 2010

Un gout herbacé bien prononcé, c'est sublime en bouche.
Mais croyez moi ou non, j'y sentais de l'anis !

Pour tester, je l'ai faite gouter à d'autres amateurs sans préciser son type et ils m'ont dit la même chose.

Cela dit, je l'avais prise pour un ami qui n'aime pas l'anis eh bien cela ne l'a absolument pas gêné...

En tout cas un bon produit qui vaut l'import.
