Mata Hari Absinthe
Mata Hari Absinthe Bohemian 50cl:
After a nearly one hundred year prohibition, absinthe has made its return to the United States. The infamous spirit is once again able to be enjoyed by citizens across the country, however, not all absinthes are created equal. The absinthe most people have been associated with is the French style drink. Bohemian style absinthe however, does not hail from France. In the case of Mata Hari absinthe, this bohemian recipe comes from Austria and has been in the Fischer family since 1881. Mata Hari has the same natural green color, grande wormwood (the subject of the controversy that led to the banning of absinthe) and louche effect of French style absinthe, but that is where her deception ends.

Authentic or “real” Absinthe is commonly distinguished by the use of Grande Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) as an ingredient. Grande Wormwood is the principal source of thujone, the component in Absinthe that was responsible for its being banned in the last century. Absinthe was outlawed in the United States and throughout much of Europe in the early 1900s because it was believed to be destructive and highly addictive. Absinthe was blamed for many of the political and social ills of the time, thus becoming – and remaining – a symbol of decadence. Despite that scandalous reputation, absinthe isn't really any different from other spirits. No evidence has ever shown Absinthe to be any more dangerous than any ordinary liquor.
