Christmas with Absinthe – gift ideas and more

The Christmas season is one of the most beautiful times of year for me. The first snow falls, you meet your friends at the Christmas market and enjoy the first mulled wine together: where I live, in Freiburg, there is a wonderful traditional German Weihnachtsmarkt. If I’m lucky, when I get home I am greeted by the lovely smell of freshly made cookies, meaning my boyfriend has been baking for me.

The only stressful part is the search for the perfect Christmas presents for my loved ones.

To make your search a little bit easier, we put together a selection of Christmas gift ideas. We offer a wide range of gift sets with absinthe, high quality spirits, accessories and much more. If you’re looking for a special gift idea, then Absinthes.com is the right place for you.

We also have a delicious Absinthe Eggnog recipe that fits perfectly with the Christmas season.

The 20th Absinthe Festival in Switzerland

 Almost everybody of Absinthes.com went on a trip to Switzerland last weekend. We went to the annual absinthe festival in the Val-de-Travers in in the Swiss Jura mountains where absinthe was invented in 1792. The festival is originally called “Fête de l’Absinthe” as the Val-de-Travers is located in the French speaking part of Switzerland. Every year, local absinthe distillers offer their absinthe brands on stalls in the street and explain how to drink absinthe or what absinthe is to curios visitors. Many absintheurs from all over the world use this opportunity to meet, mingle, and discuss our most beloved spirit.
