Absinthe – Absinthe bar in Copenhagen

Try our delicious absinthe at La Fée Verte in Frederiksberg.

It is a well-known fact that absinthe should be poured over a sugar cube, which is then set alight, to eventually be extinguished in the absinthe.  Well-known but also wrong.

It cannot be emphasized enough, that absinthe and other types of alcohol should not be set alight, unless you want to use it to flambé food. And even then, it should only be done with proficient guidance; Absinthe should, as whisky, be drunk with water. Possibly a little sugar, but today this is for most people/absinthes unnecessary – in the olden days it was mainly done to hide the bitterness of the absinthe.

The water must be ice cold and added carefully, preferably in drips, to achieve the “clouded” look. The ratio should be between 3 and 5 parts water to one part absinthe.

There were two major causes for the prohibition of absinthe. In the early 20th century absinthe was demonized by the French wine industry in order to maintain market shares and protect itself from competition. This was combined with various temperance moments that sought to ban alcohol in general.

well as a number of secret herbs. After distillation, the absinthe is aged for a minimum of 3 months in casks and is bottled with 56% alcohol.
