Marilyn Manson's absinthe: distilled and naturally coloured, according to the rules. A great surprise. Read the whole description
- In 2000, Marilyn Manson spent New Year's Eve in the south of France with Johnny Depp, who introduced him to absinthe. He fell in love with it, and has ever since dreamt of creating his own absinthe. Artists definitely like this drink!
- The label of the Mansinthe bottle was designed by Marilyn Manson himself; he is represented in front of a glass of absinthe, looking much older than he his (“when I get old”).
- Mansinthe participated at the 2007 Absinthiade; it was awarded 6th place.
The legalisation of absinthe in Switzerland enabled Markus Lion to join Oliver Matter in the production of the Duplais absinthes. Duplais Verte was produced first in July 2005, followed by Duplais Blanche in September of that same year, and Duplais Balance one year later.
Marilyn Manson who wanted to create an absinthe according to the rules, decided to call upon the Matter Luginbühl distillery in 2005. After two years of research, Mansinthe saw the light.
- At first, savour Mansinthe with half a piece of sugar. Then according to your taste, add more or less.
- For one measure of absinthe (3cl), add 2 to 5 measure of fresh water.

If I could only have one absinthe, this would be it. Complex, deep. Prefers to breathe a bit before sipping. And always leaves me feeling happy. A "happy" absinthe is a tremendously vital thing to have on hand. It appears Matter Luginbühl is still making it.

I do hope they are able to restock this. It is by far one of the finest absinthes I have ever tasted. Extremely fragrant and rich even before the louche, it blooms powerfully filling the room with it's scent.
This incredible absinthe has a bit of an unfortunate name.. but there is no doubt that Marilyn Manson knows his absinthe. He sought out a distillery that had been in continuous operation producing absinthe since the 1800's and this lineage is clear in the product.
The makers of Mansinthe also make Absinthe Duplais. I would also highly recommend Duplais as well.

A surprising amount of herbal flavor that comes on strong at first, but sits well as you continue sipping. Worth a try.

A strong alcohol taste that will probably be enjoyed by college kids, while doing shots of this.

I was completely pleased with Mansinthe.
Not only is the bottle very appealing, it tastes just as good.
I would recommend this to both new-comers and the Absinthe lovers.
Preparing it the traditional way is good, but I tried it with pineapple juice and it's pretty good with that, too.
All in all, it's a great Absinthe.

Far exceeded my expectation of what I thought may be nothing more than a gimick. Was in fact a beautiful absinthe.

Initially, an assault on the senses but I found, with great delight, Mansinthe benefits from sitting a while before savouring.
The first sips were far from remarkable, yet it becomes more enjoyable and surprising beyond the first half of the glass. Well rounded and quite complex. Certainly worth a taste, or more.

Not many more comments, it's the 10th bottle I bought, I just love it.

I just had a glass of Mansinthe right now...
I can say the combination of flavors (medium-strong anise, fine notes of wormwood and some fennel; in Mansinthe's precise amounts) makes it an interesting absinthe.
Although it lacks of character: the finish is quick and almost flavorless...
only remaining taste is alcohol, that's all.
Louche is good, but not as desired (little more thicker)
Good absinthe for amateurs: Medium-standard Suiss style Verte absinthe, price is fair for this product.
