Absinthe 55: "55" relates to the 55 mg of Thujone* present in this particlar original Absinthe recipe.
Absinthe: Anise flavoured Spirit of Swiss origin, known commonly in history as the "Green Fairy" was actually banned in Europe and the USA for a few years in the early part of the last Century! Its apparent Hallucinogenic Effect, enjoyed at the time largely by the oft considered "Immoral" Parisian Artists and Writers was, some say, due to the Natural Wormwood Plant ingredient of the original Absinthe - *Thujone . . . . this spurious fact has since been deemed incorrect and the Liquor consequently un-banned, so now we can all enjoy this delightfully creative spirit at low cost without fear of going mad as a result.
Prestige Essences are perfect for flavouring Vodka or your own favourite spirit/liqueur as well as adding to other foods such as Milk Shakes, Ice Cream, Biscuits, Cake, Icing and Filler Cream or even Meringues, Yoghurt, Brandy Sauce etc.
