Description of the products

François Guy is more aniseed than average and is produced in the pure traditional way, according to an ancient house recipe. This absinthe will enchant both novices and confirmed absinthe drinkers.

According to a recipe more than a century old, its colour is obtained entirely naturally from plants.
François Guy is produced from old methods of distillation guaranteeing the character of the traditional taste of absinthe. It is therefore no surprise that it won a prize three times in a row at the Absinthiades in Pontarlier.

A particular absinthe which merits being discovered!

Francois Guy received a gold medal at the Concours Général Agricole (CGA) 2016 and 2017 in Paris. It was also awarded a gold medal at the Absinthiades 2015.

The Vit Opal Absinthe (White Opal) is made by the Swedish distillery Svensk Absint and is the first white absinthe to come out of Sweden.

The distillers place incredible importance on using only the finest plants available to them. In many cases they decided they could do better than using commercial herb sources, and so either forage wild herbs, or grow them themselves in the distillery's herb garden. Along with the plants that are also used to make Grön Opal, Vit Opal contains some additional plants. The exact recipe naturally remains a closely guarded secret.

This absinthe is characterised by the use of grand-wormwood, which is foraged in specific areas of Sweden where it can be found growing wild. The wormwood plants are harvested sustainably, ensuring there is enough left for future years. The amount of absinthe bottles the distillers can produce depends on the amount of wormwood they harvest during the summer.

A creamy and full-bodied taste sets Vit Opal apart from other blanche absinthes, although it does have a slight Swiss La Bleue-ish aspect to it, along with a hint of camomile and a slight touch of lemon grass. Definitely one of the best Blanche absinthes on the market!

An excerpt from Markus Hartsmar's tasting note on Absinthe.se:

Aroma: strong notes of fruits and plants (wormwood, fennel and anise).
Louche: starts at once, beautiful and strong, very thick, milky white.
Taste: creamy, well-balanced.


The Vit Opal, together with the Grön Opal are available exclusively from Absinthes.com. We are delighted to offer you this unique Blanche!

This absinthe glass is a replica of one of the famous glasses of the XIXth century provided by the Musée de l'Absinthe in Auvers sur Oise.
It is made with molded glass and its reservoir will be ideal to measure correctly your absinthe.
The Bohème absinthe spoon fits snugly onto every average sized absinthe glass, and will be an eye catcher during the classic French ritual, but also the fire ritual.

This spoon fits perfectly in one of our hardcover spoon boxes, available in black and green.


  • Handle : 85 mm
  • Head : 80 mm
This elegant and classic absinthe fountain has 4 high quality brass taps.

The fountain is the perfect choice to enjoy the traditional absinthe ritual together with your friends.

Like all of our glass fountains, the classic fountain is made in Europe.
Sugar isn't always the same - some sugar cubes you can buy at your local super market may have been pressed together too tightly, and won't easily dissolve when you drip water over them.

This is why these sugar cubes are ideal for the French ritual - especially made for the preparation of absinthe, they start to dissolve immediately when water is dripped over them.

This set includes 17 packs with 2 sugar cubes contained in each of them, this should enable you to have the sugar last for a whole bottle of absinthe.
