Mansinthe Absinthe is a natural absinthe, distilled from vermouth, aniseed, fennel and other fine herbs. Naturally, pre-sweetening is avoided and artificial colorings are out of the question for reasons of quality. Oliver Matter characterizes Mansinthe Absinthe as a classic absinthe that absinthe lovers can appreciate, but which primarily appeals to novices. Mansinthe Absinthe uses an array of botanicals, including wormwood, green anise, and Florence fennel seed, and the distillate is reduced to its bottling strength using water from the Alps. The result is an unusual absinthe of compelling complexity. It is a vibrant natural green with light blue reflections in the glass, and the slow-forming louche is opaque and opalescent. Musky, earthy aromas of alpine herbs and flowers introduce a rounded, savory, buttery palate with a refreshing and lasting finish.
