Marilyn Manson’s absinthe: distilled and naturally coloured, according to the rules. A great surprise.
A certain complexity is hidden behind Mansinthe
’s simplicity, and will surprise more than one.
It suggests hyssop and green anise flavours on discrete grand wormwood notes, and offers an agreeable finish.
An absinthe that will please fans as well as amateurs !
- 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”).
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.
