Adnams absinthe rouge is produced at the Adnams Copper House distillery in Southwold, UK. The vivid red colour is obtained entirely naturally from hibiscus flowers.

Aroma: Complex, floral and candied with subtle hints of wormwood.

Louche: Slow forming and thick, resulting in a liquid with the colour of parma violets.

Taste: Floral with the hibiscus flowers contributing a unique flavour that sits along side of the wormwood and anise to produce a creamy round and slightly sweet mid-palate and a long finish.

Red or Rouge Absinthes are extremely rare. One historical example exists, Absinthe Rosé Oxygénée by Rosinette, made famous by a publicity poster.

The current batch of Adnams Rouge is produced according to an improved recipe. We would like to thank Simon Broadley-Pedersen for sharing his tasting notes with us:

"The new batch is INSANE!!! Out of the bottle it is a vibrant Provence blush rosé.. No way near as heavy as before.. The anise slightly reduced. The wormwood increased... Balanced perfection! The best flavour ever and the blush rosé makes for a pretty louche which when done, looks like feminine preban... And it tastes equally good. Top scores from me! This rouge is the best rouge going.... It's also far better than any vintage Spanish hibiscus absinthe like Germa or Volart."

A vey good absinthe, better than I expected. The red color is glorious, the louche is thick, changing from red to pink to white as more water is added. Aroma and taste are those of a good absinthe, not exceeding in anise, with a lovely and unobtrusive flowery note of hibiscus. Tasty and well balanced, without rough edges. A little sugar makes it even smoother. It's going to be a permanent guest in my home canteen.

I thoroughly enjoyed this absinthe! A wonderful experience to taste, well balanced, and the louche is lovely. One of my best purchases yet! If you want to try something a little unique I highly recommend the rouge. A little personal note, try this without any sugar first and see how you like it. Enjoy it :)

Being that I'm relatively new to the absinthe experience, I must say I was quite surprised and pleased by this offering. The Adnams Rouge is not merely beautiful in the glass. It is delightfully delicate, well balanced and satisfying. This was my first venture away from the many verte's I have enjoyed, and I recommend this to anyone looking for something a bit different.

This absinthe is a wild card. If you want to taste something you have never before, and still remain in the domain of real absinthes, this is the one. It actually really has a rich flowery flavour, is really smooth and has a nice, full and cloudy white/pink louche which makes ladies happy and tastes also pretty good.

A very pleasant experience.
From deep red in the bottle to a vibrant, jewel like ruby in the glass, a floral, toasted marshmallow scent with the promise of much anise, Adnams Rouge grabs the attention.
The louche is entertaining, with the rolling cloud effect being quite prominant through the ruby red, which then settles into a very pretty, pastel blushing pink.
With a pleasing mouth feel, the friuty, floral notes are well defined and quite delicious. Anise is solidly represented with a mellow wormwood presence leading into a nice finish.
Adnams Rouge will no doubt go on to form the basis of many interesting cocktails. It is certainly worth the effort should it be something a little different, yet still based on tradition you are wanting to enjoy.
I doff my hat to the UK.

N.B. This is personally based on 3 parts water - 1 part Rouge, no sugar.
