During the heyday of absinthe, Germany wasn't exactly known to be pioneering in absinthe manufacturing. However, since the EU opened the path for absinthe to once again enter the scene, Germany was there to take it on. There are a lot of German absinthe brands available today. Most of them by poor quality, and leaning more towards the Czech style Absinth. There are some that are quite palatable, but they are few.

This is also known as the "Absinth-Guide.de Sonderausgabe 2005" - the winner of the 2005 HG competition at Absinthe-guide.de. Made by Deep Forest, a member of that forum (and other international forums) and then realized in slightly larger scale at the Eichelberger distillery.
Most German absinthes coming out around 2000 are bitter, dry and marketed using the thujone levels and old myths. Tabu is different in one aspect. It's not bitter.

It's the new bistro, the new bar in town. A good place to meet when meeting in real life isn't always an option. Meet me on facebook for more updates from the absinthe world.
