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.

It is delivered in an illustrated box that not only provides information about the absinthe traditional absinthe drinking ritual, but also offers an optimal way to keep the bottle protected from light.

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 box of 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.

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 :)

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.

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!

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)!

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!
