Absinthe is a distilled, highly alcoholic (45%-90% ABV), anise-flavored spirit derived from herbs, including the flowers and leaves of the herb Artemisia absinthium, also called “wormwood!.” Absinthe is typically of a natural green color but is also produced in both clear and artificially colored styles!. It is often called “the Green Fairy!.”

Although it is sometimes mistakenly called a liqueur, absinthe is not bottled with added sugar and is therefore classified as a liquor!. Absinthe is unusual among spirits in that it is bottled at a high proof but is normally diluted with water when it is drunk!.

In 2007, the US Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) relaxed the US absinthe ban, and approved several brands for sale!. These brands must pass TTB testing, which is performed by the Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry method and TTB considers a product to be thujone-free if the FDA’s test measures less than 10ppm (equal to 10mg/kg) thujone!. A US distillery also began producing and selling absinthe, the first US company to do so since 1912!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Absinthe!. It contains essence of wormwood, which, in turn, contains a trace amount of thujone, which is really nasty stuff!. Thujone is still a controlled substance, but no absinthe contains enough to provide any sort of hallucinogenic or carcinogenic effect!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

There is a herb in it(worm wood) that is a hallucinogenic!. Though I have drank copious amounts of it before and it didnt effect meWww@FoodAQ@Com

Absinthe!. It was made illegal because it supposedly contained a controlled substance!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
