Our curiosity for absinthe was first piqued after opening our cocktail bar in 2016. We were intrigued by the mystery that surrounded absinthe and the fact that it remained so widely misunderstood. After travelling to the Jura Mountains and meeting the distillers and the Absinthe's birthplace, we became hooked. People are apprehensive about trying absinthe due to it’s high abv, but when diluted properly it can in-fact be no stronger than a good glass of wine.
