Musset didn't write the way he did because he drank absinthe, instead he drank for the same reason for which he wrote just like that: namely out of despair.

The French word Sauvage translates to "wild". The Absinthe Sauvage is anything but wild - it's a very sophisticated drink. Distilled in extremely small batches using wild-growing absinthe from the Pontarlier region.
Absinthe in a skull - sounds a little too goth to be good right? But as it turns out, Oliver Matter did it again. As always.
Absinthe Supreme from Urbano pleme is the first absinthe to come from Slovenia. It is presented in a good looking, modern kind of olive-oil style bottle with modern looking labels. But is there more to it than fancy packaging?
It was only a matter of time until someone in the Czech Republic would actually make a decent absinthe. The blanche Toulouse-Lautrec is a good attempt and up to 2009 this was certainly the best the Czech had to offer.
Absinthe Valkyria is the first modern commercial Swedish distilled absinthe. Distilled at Sankta Annas Bränneri, a small batch distillery located in an old church in Lindesberg, Sweden.
Another one of those absinthes where the packaging cost more per bottle than what's inside. With a suggestion on the back label to mix the absinthe with an energy drink, I have very low expectations.
One of the first comercial absinthes to come out of Poland. Of course with a color looking like a nuclear disaster and more money spent on packaging and design than the contents of the bottle.
Another absinthe verte from the prominent distillery Les Fils d'Emile Pernot in La Cluse-et-Mijoux, Pontarlier, France. Authentique is its name and yes - Authentique is its game.
Kyle Bairnsfather, successor of Martin Sebor, continued the ways of Sebor and have created several similar absinths. To me they're more of a decent bitter schnaps than an absinthe.
Parisian Absinthe-shop Vert d'Absinthe owner Luc Santiago had this traditional absinthe, based on a 1899 recipe made by the Pontarlier based distillery, Les Fils d'Emile Pernot.
The white cousin of Verte de Fougerolles. It is based on a traditional absinthe blanche recipe. At the time of its release this was one of the finest blanches. It holds a super creamy milky louche.
Another blanche from Matter-Luginbühl, but this time in cooperation with Liqueurs de France. Bottled at still-strength this packs a hefty 81.3% alcohol.
American made small batch absinthe built on knowledge, heart, blues and a whole lot of soul stretching from down to earth southern backwood riverbanks to upstate classy.
Swiss absinthe verte produced in the heart of Val-de-Traves but inspired by an old American pre-ban absinthe from Boston.
Distilled by Emile Pernot distillery in Pontarlier, based on the protocols by David Nathan-Maister for a South African distributor. All that doesn't matter. What matters is that this is a really nice drink.
