Coming up also in March (on March 5th) is National Absinthe Day! This holiday commemorates the day that Absinthe was legalized in the U.S. after a 95-year ban. To celebrate, try Lucid Absinthe, the brand responsible for driving the repeal and opening up the U.S. market to Absinthe.
Lucid is the first genuine absinthe made with real Grande Wormwood to be legally available in the United States in over 95 years. Lucid is made with a full measure of Grande Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) as well as other fine European herbs.
In accordance with the views of absinthe experts in Europe and the US, a genuine absinthe is always distilled directly from a mixture of whole herbs in alcohol, which should be a neutral spirit of agricultural origin. It should never be cold mixed from industrial extracts or steam distilled essences or oils. To be true to tradition, the herbs must include Grande Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), as well as European green anise and sweet fennel, and can include other culinary herbs. An authentic absinthe verte receives its traditional green color directly from the whole herbs, and should never be colored with artificial colorants or chemicals (e.g., FD&C dyes). Genuine absinthe should never contain sugar as bottled, so it should not be classified as a liqueur. Finally, a quality, genuine French absinthe will always contain a higher concentration of alcohol to preserve its herbal content and natural green color, 60-72% being typical.
Lucid is prepared in accordance with the same standards as pre-ban absinthes. It is historically accurate in EVERY detail!
