Vulgaris species is used in the herbal soaks. I dont know if they taste different. These formulas are hundreds of years old and only like 1/2 once is used to 3 gallons of liquor, so I don't think the taste is really there. It is masked by the other herbs. I will try to order some some quality absinthe. I would like to try it.

Artemisia vulgaris? That would be Mugwort. It's nothing compared to absinthium in terms of bitterness. A half ounce of absinthium would be enough to spoil over five gallons, I would think. May I ask what recipes you're referring to and their source?

I have added Artemesia to other formulas with liquor.
You can't just say "Artemisia." There are hundreds of species of Artemisia, some of which are useful, others, not so much. Only a few are traditional in absinthe: absinthium, pontica and glacialis, although others have been used. I believe it is annua (Sweet Annie) which is most used in Chinese medicine.

 

If you order, use one of the vendors on our list. They have the best selections, a minimum of inferior products, and are very reliable. Always choose the courier option; sending any form of alcohol through the US mail is both illegal and risky.

If you want to check Artemisia vulgaris taste, get any liqueur d'armoise. From Artemisias, vulgaris and nilagrica have the lowest bitterness indicator: around 8, whereas wormwood is 500 - it speaks for itself (Somsak, L., Świat roślin, skał i minerałów, PWRiL, Wa-wa, 1982). By the way the nicest aroma of vulgaris comes from flowers. In spirit industry, artemisia abrotanum is also used (Polish Diamond vodka black)

Nope, I'll go for the commercial one. Mainly because I am too impatient, and I would probably have eaten the wormwood and flushed it down my throat with a glass of cold water... :3872-DrunkBanana:

If you could only choose one, which would you choose? Give a good deal of thought to the long-term effects your answer.

 

 

*This refers to all distillation—whisky, vodka, rum, gin, etc., not just absinthe.

 

as an quasi anarcho-capitalist i would say that the govt had no business making either illegal in the first place and should rescind those laws..

If I had to choose...

 

I guess my left eye.

 

Don't you have any compassion, sir?

 

Let the dead rest in peace, for heaven's sake. ;)
