“If you haven’t experienced Absinthia’s elixirs, you’re missing out. There is no one more dedicated to quality absinthe than she is. The blanche started it all and now the verte is finally available!

Packaged in stunning 375ml glass and offering incredible value, there isn’t a better choice in the store for your absinthe needs.”  ~Andrew Whitely, K&L Wine Merchants
