Absinthe is quite possibly the world’s most infamous spirit and this is because it is made using wormwood. It was once said that Grand Wormwood (known as Artemisia Absinthium), contained the drug thujone which was incorrectly believed to be a hallucinogenic. In reality, however, the societal woes based on Absinthe were actually nothing to do with the spirit. To create Absinthe, various aniseed flavours are used, including Anise, Wormwood, Fennel and a variety of other herbs and spices. The spirit comes in various styles, including Blanche, which is colourless and unaged; Verte, which is green in colour and is coloured with herbs after it is distilled; Bohemian Absinthe, which is a Czech-style spirit made with little anise and fennel, with wormwood providing the main flavour; and Spanish Absenta, which is a little sweeter thanks to the addition of Alicante anise.
