Produced since 1915, Absente 55 is an absinthe based product created using the classic wormwood plant, Thujone and a blend of aniseed essences including green anise, star anise essence, and grande absinthe. Absente 55 is infused with mint and lemon balm, cane sugar, and water giving a subtle aroma of absinthe blended with anise, mint and spices. All these ingredients are distilled together to give a traditional, fresh and spicy taste packed with flavour. Best enjoyed using the traditional method of drinking with sugar and water.
