Absinthe has long been a beloved spirit among the goth subculture, thanks to its association with artists, writers, and other creatives who embraced the darker side of life. So, when Absinthia's Absinthe launched their unique and flavorful absinthe, it's no surprise that it quickly caught the attention of the goth community. Recently, a prominent member of the goth subculture, known as "Goth Girl," wrote a glowing review of Absinthia Absinthe. You can watch the video HERE.
"Today I review an American-based female-owned brand, Absinthia Absinthe Verte! I was very excited to try this and see if it fits traditional standards!"
"...is the first truthful song about absinthe made in the last fifty years. Everything else since then has depicted absinthe as a dangerous, toxic, addictive, hallucinogenic drug."
When she tried Absinthia's Absinthe, she was blown away by the depth of flavor and quality of the ingredients. She compared the aroma to Jade Absinthes, and called Absinthia Absinthe Verte, "One of the best American Absinthes I have ever had."
She starts her review by discussing women in the absinthe industry. There has long been debate over who first created absinthe, the Henriod Sisters or Dr. Pierre Ordinaries (spoiler alert: it was the sisters and then claimed by the male doctor!). Of this, she says,
"there is some degree of sexism and there is a bit of a perception that absinthe is a bit of a boys club, so women definitely need to stick together because it can get ugly out there...the fact that it is women owned makes me super proud. I am genuinely impressed by the standard you have created with this, Absinthia. This is the real deal and is very close to the absinthes I have had in France.""
Goth Girl appreciated the fact that Absinthia's Absinthe was a small-batch product and a woman owned and made absinthe.
"As far as the United States absinthes are concerned, this is one of the best that I have had...second only to Delaware Phoenix Absinthes, which are...no longer in production because the original owner of it unfortunately passed away recently. I am genuinely excited about this being an American made product. WOW."
Goth Girl's review of Absinthia's Absinthe has helped to bring attention to this unique and flavorful spirit within the goth community. As a community that values creativity, authenticity, and the unconventional, it's no surprise that absinthe would be embraced by goths. And with Absinthia's commitment to quality and sustainability, it's a spirit that can be enjoyed with a clear conscience.
"It starts out sweet and then it kind of rounds out into a little bit of botanical bitterness and a mintyness, almost like I had a piece of mint gum about an hour ago. It is very refreshing and light on the palate. I do find this approachable for someone who is not adverse to the flavor of anise that is interested in trying absinthe and wants to get the experience of all the different nuances and flavors and all the layers that go into a delicious, high quality absinthe."
