Absinthe Kits

There are various kinds of Absinthe kits readily availableto get online, every one of them designed to create your personal "Green Fairy" bottled Absinthe drinks.

With a few kits you have to adhere to a recipe and steep a variety of traditional Absinthe herbs, like buy absinthe wormwood, aniseed and fennel, for a few days or work with a special 2 step steeping process. Along with other Absinthe kits, you have to mix Absinthe herbs with a neutral alcohol base, like vodka, and after that filter the amalgamation after a couple of days. Neither of such methods will make real Absinthe because there is no distillation involved.

Many of these Absinthe kits can be dangerous. One available online claimed to create an Absinthe liquor which has a thujone content of 80-90mg. Studies show that vintage Absinthe from the nineteenth century and early 1900s contained simply a small amount of thujone, nowhere near 80mg! Thujone is a chemical present in wormwood which may be toxic and impact the GABA receptors inside the brain triggering muscle spasms and convulsions when used in big amounts.

Absinthe was forbidden in early 1900s since it was thought to have psychedelic effects, bring about insanity and hallucinations. It has now been completely disproved and Absinthe is legal in many countries. Absinthe is no more hazardous than any of the other powerful spirits like whisky and vodka.
