Vintage Absinthe

Vintage Absinthe

Many do not realize that there are numerous surviving bottles of pre-ban absinthe from a good range of the more exemplary brands.  Extraordinarily well-preserved, these rare specimens are the final authority on the characteristics of absinthe, in quality, flavor, and herbal and chemical content.

These bottles mostly represent the upper quality range of pre-ban absinthes made in the of the 19th century. Our criteria for what constitutes "traditional style" are based on the qualities and characteristics of these absinthes, made at the height of absinthe's popularity in the late 19th century and early 20th century. Briefly, these characteristics are:

• Minimum 90 proof.
• Do not contain sugar or other sweeteners.
• All contain Artemisia absinthium wormwood as a main ingredient.
• All have a main characteristic flavor of aniseed and wormwood.
