Absinthe Kits

by admin on 2018/08/24

You will find different types of Absinthe kits readily available to buy online, every one of them intended to create your individual “Green Fairy” bottled Absinthe drinks.

With a few kits you should follow a recipe and steep a variety of traditional Absinthe herbs, such as wormwood, aniseed and fennel, for a few days or make use of a special 2 step steeping process. With other Absinthe kits, you need to mix Absinthe herbs that has a neutral alcohol base, for example vodka, after which filter the mixture after a few days. Neither of such methods will make real Absinthe since there is no distillation involved.

Many of these Absinthe kits may also be dangerous. One available online claimed to make an Absinthe liquor which has a thujone content of 80-90mg. Research has shown that vintage Absinthe in the nineteenth century and early 1900s contained just a little bit of thujone, nowhere near 80mg! Thujone is a chemical present in wormwood which may be toxic and impact the GABA receptors in the brain producing muscle spasms and convulsions when consumed in big amounts.

Absinthe was banned in early 1900s since it was thought to have psychedelic effects, cause insanity and hallucinations. It has now been entirely disproved and Absinthe is legal in most countries. Absinthe is no more damaging than any of the other powerful spirits such as whisky and vodka.

– Absinthe 55 Strong Pro – This Absinthe essence constitutes a stronger and greener Absinthe which has a higher thujone content – 55mg. This essence is made up of more wormwood and so gives a more bitter flavor.

Every one of these essences have a safe amount of thujone and are easy to use following the instructions provided.

As well as Absinthe kits, AbsintheKit.com also sell stunning imitation Absinthe glasses and spoons. The Ritual just isn’t right without having a traditional glass and spoon because to organize proper Absinthe you need to drip iced water over a sugar cube on a slotted spoon to steadily mix with the Absinthe and trigger the Absinthe to louche.
