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?

Alcohol
68%
Manufacturer
Likerka Cami
Country
Czech Republic
Color
Blanche
Type

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.

Abtshof Absinth 66

Brand information

Alcohol
66%
Manufacturer
Abtshof
Country
Germany
Color
Verte
Type
Mixed & Macerated

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.

Alcohol
55%
Manufacturer
Toorank Polska S.A
Country
Poland
Color
Verte
Type
Mixed & Macerated

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.

France
Color
Verte
Type
Distilled

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.

 
 
Bairnsfather Bitter

Manufacturer
Bairnsfather Distillery
Country
Czech Republic
Color
Verte
Type
Mixed & Macerated

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.
