God knows, I post enough about absinthe that I’m sure to be coming up in some search engines, somewhere, so I guess the disclaimer is overdue.
— Absinthe doesn’t make you hallucinate any more so than any other high-proof spirit.
— Thujone content doesn’t matter. Brands that push their thujone or their bitterness aren’t worth your time or money and certainly not your tastebuds.
— If it doesn’t have at least “The Big 3” in it – anise, grand wormwood and fennel – it’s not absinthe and don’t try telling me otherwise.
Beyond that, if you have any questions or curiosity about absinthe, I can’t recommend the forces behind The Wormwood Society highly enough.
