Legend has it the first true Absinthe recipe was created by Dr. Pierre Ordinaire in 1792 in rural France. Dr. Ordinaire’s Absinthe was so widely accepted, it quickly traveled across the cafe tables from south of France to Montmarte in Paris, where his exciting new drink would end up gracing the lips of artists, musicians, writers and poets alike, ultimately becoming the symbol of the free and easy bohemian spirit. Today, Absinthe Ordinaire recalls one of the most legendary and commercially successful Absinthe recipes during the glittering era of LaBelle Epoque Paris. Absinthe Ordinaire Liqueur is handcrafted in rural France using only the highest quality ingredients and artisanal methods from the region, including Wormwood, also known as Artemisia Absinthum. Ansinthe Ordinaire is bottled at 46% alc/vol. Contains FD&C Yellow #5, and Blue #1.
