Absinthe is a distilled herbal apéritif of high alcoholic content
which before drinking should always be diluted with cold water.
When the water is added the absinthe louches or changes
colour. It is traditionally imbibed before a meal, however it is
also an exceptionally good digestif after a meal.

The three main herbal ingredients in absinthe are wormwood,
also known as Artemisia absinthium, fennel and green anise.
An Amer absinthe is one higher in wormwood content hence a
more bitter taste profile.

A green absinthe is called a 'verte' and a clear absinthe is
called a 'blanche' for a French absinthe or a 'la bleue' for a Swiss.
The word absinthe comes from the French word for wormwood,
pronounced 'ab-sant' after its botanical name.
