Absinthe is officially declared outlawed in 1915 by the French government (and subsequently by many other countries) due to the alleged hallucinogenic effects that caused its active ingredient, Tujone. The real reason is that the wormwood became extremely popular in 1870, when the phylloxera affected and destroyed the vineyards throughout Europe and the wine was replaced with absinthe. Thus, in the early nineteenth century, the leading wine producers combined their power and political influence by declaring it illegal.
Distillates have different alcoholpercentages. So, we have defined a parameter allowing you to better understand and compare different prices. This parameter is calculated by dividing the bottle price by the alcohol content. The alcohol content (or strength) is the amount of pure alcohol (ethanol) contained in the distillate.
This parameter indicates the price of a single 4cl dosage of distillate. It is calculated by dividing the price of the bottle by its quantity (expressed in cl), then multiplying by the centilitres of the recommended single dose, as average in cocktail recipes.
