Czech Absinthe

Czech absinthe is something of a paradox. In a way, Czech absinth was responsible for kicking off the absinthe rennaisance, despite the first Czech absinthe not being absinthe at all! Absinthe reappeared in the Czech Republic in 1994. Many Czech distillers picked up on the idea that tourists were curious about this spirit that was rumored to be hallucinogenic and had an elaborate ritual that involving setting it on fire. In fact Absinthe is no more hallucinogenic than other alcohol, and although the elaborate ritual exists, should never involve fire. Much hyped, the Czech absinthe that ended up being sold was more like herbal bitters, and did not resemble the genuine absinthe produced during the 19th century.

Fortunately things have changed, and nowadays the Czech Republic is home to some of the best absinthe on the planet. All thanks to one man though - Martin Zufanek - and his distillery. Zufanek's absinthes St. Antoine and Amave are excellent, and his collaborations with Stefano Rossoni, La Grenouille and L'Ancienne are top-class. Ancienne is only released in certain years, and sells out within days.
