You seem to loose your feet, and you mount a boundless realm without horizon. You probably imagine that you are going in the direction of the infinite, whereas you are simply drifting into the incoherent.
- American Journal of Pharmacy, 1868
Since about 1997-1998 several hundred various brands of absinthe is available all over the world. Some bare almost no resemblance to vintage absinthes what so ever, and some are excellent reproductions.

The second absinthe to come out of Jade Liqueurs was the Verte Suisse 65. Aimed to be a reproduction of the pre-ban C.F Berger absinthe.
From the well known distillery Les Fils d'Emile Pernot just outside Pontarlier we are used to get high quality absinthes - this is no different.
Not only the Swiss make blanches worth the name. Swedish distillery Svensk Absint AB released this, Vit Opal, at the same time as their verte. Honestly - it beats many of the top shelf Swiss blanches, by far.
The Christmas absinthes from Matter-Luginbühl are made in small limited batches just in time for the holidays each year.
A variation of the original Un Emile Blanche. My own favorite of the two and again, made in cooperation with Liqueurs de France. This is no longer in production.
The third offering from the small Swedish distillery Sankta Annas Bränneri in Linderberg. Made in a former church for a Swedish Metal band. Oh, and there's a zombie on the label...
From the famed Swedish distillery, which was actually the first Swedish absinthe distillery in modern times, Valkyria Distillery (formerly Sankta Anna Bränneri) comes this intriguing creation. Following the success of the Wolf absinthe, this spiced up red absinthe is sure to bring the heat on. But is it hot enough?
A small limited batch of a blanche absinthe with a very dominant Wormwood profile.
Very few Swiss distillers seem to know how to produce a fine absinthe verte. This certainly isn't one of them.
The Zürcher Fée Absinth apparently exist in different variants. One that louches perfectly and is really tasty and then one which is the exact opposite. Problem is that the labels are identical... Why?!

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.
