Many people are desperately searching for Absinthe and asking the question “Where can I order a bottle of Absinthe?”. As Absinthe became legal in many EU countries in 1988 but not in the United States until 2007 so number of people have not tasted the real Absinthe.

Here are some tips to help you in your search for the perfect quality Absinthe:-
– Educate yourself about Absinthe, what it is, its history, its ingredients. Go through the online resources to get details of the Green Fairy drink.
– To learn more about especial Absinthes a person should read product descriptions and product reviews.

– Wormwood is the important content for the Absinthe. There are a few websites which display the thujone content of Absinthes. Wormwood which contains thujone is the main ingredient which gives Absinthe it’s name and slight bitter taste. The USA and the EU gives authority to Absinthes containg up to 10mg/kg of thujone. One can also find anise or aniseed and fennel as basic ingredient in Absinthe. Due to lack of anise content wormwood bitters are not considered as Absinthe. Everyone should know that the Czech Hill’s Anise Free Absinthe is also not a true Absinthe.
