There are also many modern Absinthes on sale on the Internet, look for ones that have won awards or that have got good reviews.
– It is necessary to have wormwood in the selected Absinthe. Some websites list the thujone content of Absinthes. Thujone is a chemical found in wormwood (artemisia absinthium), the key ingredient which gives Absinthe its name and slight bitter taste. The thujone content should be up to 10mg/kg in Absinthe in the USA and the EU. The other main contents of Absinthe are anise or aniseed and fennel. One cannot get the real Absinthe due to wormwood bitters. The Czech Hill’s Anise Free Absinthe available i the market is also not a real Absinthe.
– There are different varieties of Absinthe. A person should also take into account clear Swiss La Bleue styles. A person can also buy different colored Absinthes like the red Absenta Serpis from Spain and Tabu Red from Germany.
– One must see the alcohol by volume of Absinthes. Usually Absinthe has an abv of between 50 and 75%. “Proof” is nearly two times of the abv.
– A person can either ask the owner of a liquor shop or search on the Internet to know more about the Absinthe which he wants to buy.

– The Ritual or the traditional way of manufacturing Absinthe should be known by everyone.

Such essences are available from a company called AbsintheKit (AbsintheKitcom) who supply these essences to the Absinthe industry.
