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. Parts of Revelation Chapter 8 are also printed on the bottle:

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 on our blog.

Bourbonnaise Distillery, France

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.

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!

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.

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.

Good absinthe. Has a classic taste with a respectful amount of bitterness that will be OK even for beginners. Three stars because I truly found it to be average. Don't get me wrong. It's good, but nothing to write home about. This absinthe would be great for parties where you just want to have a fun cocktail. Save the good stuff for the right time. The cool bottle is a nice keepsake for other fluids you might want to store. Also makes a good topic of conversation. Absinthe connoisseurs might want to look elsewhere.

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.

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.
