Absente
Absinthe Substitutes
Like many, this was my introduction to Absinthe. It is a pure star anise bomb with sugar already in the mix. The color and louche look ok but are clearly produced by artificial coloring. The dishonest way that this product is marketed with the “With WOORMWOOD” labels all over the bottle are its key failings for me. The product claims to be real, whilst giving any newcomers to the absinthe world a false start.
