One of the more popular Czech absinthes, Sebor Absinthe remains true to its region’s version of The Green Fairy. It is hard and bitter and not necessarily in a negative way. The Czech Republic, along with Spain, are just some of the localities known for their strong interpretation of absinthes and interestingly enough, they’re one of the few countries who never banned the drink. This arguably makes Sebor one of the authentic ones out there.
Sebor Absinthe contains the classic ingredients of anise, fennel and wormwood. Its wormwood content is a maxed out volume of the legal amount. (Wormwood is said to be the main component in absinthe that provides a hallucinating effect on its consumer.) Nevertheless, it remains to be safe and quite frankly less harsh than other Czech absinthes at just 55% ABV. It uses but natural ingredients, no sugar or added coloring, under traditional brewing methods which include maceration.
With more than 13 herbs (chamomile, coriander, mint and lemon balm, among others) in the mix and a century old recipe to back its production, Sebor Absinthe provides a simple yet pleasing play of flavors on your palate. Although many abhor the sugar-burning ritual of burning absinthe, this seems to be the best way to enjoy a shot of Sebor.
