Absinthe Kits

You will find different types of Absinthe kits available to buy online, every one of them created to make your personal “Green Fairy” bottled Absinthe drinks.

With many kits you have to follow a recipe and steep a wide range of traditional Absinthe herbs, for instance wormwood, aniseed and fennel, for several days or work with a special 2 step steeping process. For some other Absinthe kits, you need to mix Absinthe herbs that has a neutral alcohol base, for example vodka, after which filter the amalgamation after a couple of days. Neither of such methods can make real Absinthe as there is no distillation involved.

A few of these Absinthe kits could also be dangerous. One available on the internet claimed to make an Absinthe liquor that has a thujone content of 80-90mg. Studies have shown that vintage Absinthe in the nineteenth century and early 1900s contained just a tiny amount of thujone, nowhere near 80mg! Thujone is a chemical found in wormwood which may be toxic and affect the GABA receptors within the brain causing muscle spasms and convulsions when consumed in large quantities.

Absinthe was forbidden during the early 1900s since it was considered to have psychedelic effects, cause insanity and hallucinations. This has now been entirely disproved and Absinthe is legal in most countries. Absinthe is no more damaging than any of the other formidable spirits like whisky and vodka.
