There are several types of Absinthe kits obtainable to buy online, every one of them designed to create your very own “Green Fairy” bottled Absinthe drinks.

With many kits you need to adhere to a recipe and steep a selection of traditional Absinthe herbs, like wormwood, aniseed and fennel, for several days or work with a special 2 step steeping process. Along with other Absinthe kits, you need to mix Absinthe herbs with a neutral alcohol base, including vodka, and then filter the amalgamation after a couple of days. Neither of such methods will make real Absinthe since there is no distillation involved.

Many of these Absinthe kits could also be dangerous. One available on the web claimed to make an Absinthe liquor which has a thujone content of 80-90mg. Research has shown that vintage Absinthe from the nineteenth century and early 1900s contained just a tiny amount of thujone, nowhere near 80mg! Thujone is a chemical found in wormwood which can be toxic and affect the GABA receptors in the brain causing muscle spasms and convulsions when consumed in large quantities.

Absinthe was prohibited in the early 1900s as it was believed to have psychedelic effects, trigger insanity and hallucinations. This has now been entirely disproved and Absinthe is legal in many countries. Absinthe is no more dangerous than any of the other formidable spirits just like whisky and vodka.
