Here’s a neat little collectable. This is a half liter size Pernod Fils absinthe bottle from the good old days It’s in pretty good condition being that it’s 100+ years old. The way you can tell a pre-ban bottle from the later Taragonna bottles is in the label. Over the name there is an oval with a white cross in it, whereas the later bottles replaced the cross with the name Pernod. The only thing I don’t like about this bottle……it’s empty

Marilyn Manson is a famous Absintheur. He usually drinks the Absinthe Serpis Red with 65% alcohol. But since 2008 he has his own Absinthe brand, Absinthe Mansinthe. The reviews for Mansinthe Absinthe are quite contradictionary. Some say that it is too weak in taste and louche for a real Absinthe, others like the lower licorice / anise taste of this Absinthe. Overall we would say it is a decent Absinthe. But we think it is a bit too moderate for an eccentric like Manson. What do you think..?
At this years International Wine and Spirits Competition La Maison Fontaine Absinthe took the Best in Class Gold Medal. It is a typical La Bleue Absinthe, but it is distilled in France, not Switzerland. It has a very fresh and crisp taste. 15 herbs are used for distillation. The producers recommend to try this Absinthe as well the “cucumber” way. Add some slices of cucumber into the decanter you use for diluting your Absinthe. It will give the drink a pleasant freshness. This wonderful absinthe is available at our sister site www.Alandia.de .
A new Absinthe is coming to Absinthe.FM! By the beginning of august we will sell the reproduction Absinthe Butterfly. Butterfly was produced in the USA in the early 1900´s. Now the legend has returned. Here is some info about Butterfly´s history:
Yesterday I was fortunate enough to try a new verte absinthe distilled in Europe for the US market. It’s made with a wine based alcohol and traditional ingrediants, with a few secret ones as well, at 136 proof. It has a strong aroma and a very rich, full bodied flavor. This one has the most traditional vintage flavor of any US absinthes that I’ve tried. Over a year in the making, it has been approved for the US. They’re just waiting for approval of the label. My source tells me that it will (hopefully) be here in time for Christmas and it will be a medium priced one. I can’t say anymore than that at the moment, but I’ll post more details as they become available. Get ready folks, you’ll like this one!
