Only having been legalized recently, Grande Absente made absinthe so extraordinarily strong that it was legally banned for a period of time starting in 1912. Its storied history of infamy includes being the trademark beverage of choice, of famous artists such as Pablo Picasso, Vincent Van Gogh, and Oscar Wilde. Handcrafted and made exclusively with top-of-the-line quality mixture of spirits and botanicals, Grande Absente also includes the legendary herb ‘Artemisia Absinthium’, or wormwood. This herb is famously known as a hallucinogen, and also the absinthe’s primary active ingredient, giving it the potency and texture.
Absinthes are generally known as spirits with extremely high alcohol content; this is even truer for Grande Absente, which boasts a 138 proof rating. Caution is advised to drinkers interested in experiencing the heat and hallucinogenic properties, but be assured that it is still an interesting drinking experience. Should you desire to chase ‘the green fairy’, purchase a bottle at Singapore’s online duty-free shopping.
