Six years ago yesterday, I made my very first own absinthe. Today, the improved third batch of my „Absinthe Vivide“ is going on sale. Back then, I would have hardly imagined ever doing this commercially, so how did it come to this?
Absinthe Gustave is the new and exclusive Verte by Absinthes.com. Aimed to take you back to the Belle Epoque, Absinthe Gustave is characterized by a strong wormwood profile and scarce botanicals such as calamus root. We gave a gave a sample of this exquisite absinthe to some of our most renowned absinthe experts:
Andrew White, who has been working at Absinthes.com for over six years.
Jan Hartmann, creator of the recipe for the best German absinthe “Vivide“.
Marc Thuillier has more than 12 years of experience in absinthe and absinthe antiques. He’s probably tasted more absinthes than any of us. Now, he had a chance to review Absinthes.com’s latest own absinthe, Absinthe Gustave.
Color: very nice dead leaf color lending towards olive-green. (more…)
This is the most famous absinthe cocktail in history. Apparently, it was Ernest Hemingway who invented it. This is a very strong cocktail so we recommend you handle this drink with care.
Muddle the fresh blueberries and add syrup, absinthe, lemon juice and vodka inside a cocktail shaker. Add a bit of ice and shake well, then strain into a Highball glass. Drizzle in the raspberry liqueur and top with ginger beer. Garnish with a few remaining blueberries and a sugar cube.
