An Absinthe Kit is a kit created to help you create your individual Absinthe liquor rather than purchasing a bottle of Absinthe.
There are various kinds of Absinthe kits available. With a few kits available on the web you need to steep herbs for several days and use a 2 step steeping process, with some you make use of Absinthe essences to blend with a simple alcohol base and still others you mix Absinthe herbs with vodka and after that myabsinthe.com filter after a few days.
One steeping kit I found online claimed to make Absinthe having a thujone content of 80-90mg! A lot of thujone and many times a lot more than commercial Absinthe, even pre-ban Absinthe. It’s thujone that was thought to cause psychedelic effects and hallucinations when consumed in mass.
An Absinthe kit from Absinthekit.com is easy to utilize and it has a wise volume of thujone. The kit includes your chosen Absinthe essence containing the standard herbs – wormwood, aniseed, fennel and star anise, a measure to gauge the essence and desirable artistic labels to decorate your bottles.
The positive aspect of this kit is that it makes 14 bottles of Absinthe, nothing like some kits that simply make one bottle! The essences are made with real wormwood, not just a synthetic substitute, pure top-quality oils, created using hi-tech methods such as carbon dioxide distillation, and they are the identical essences which are sold to the Absinthe industry – how much more could you ask for?
