Henri-Louis Pernod, who first distilled commercial Absinthe in the early 19th century in Pontarlier, France, employed a wine alcohol base. He distilled the alcohol with herbs like wormwood, fennel, aniseed, hyssop, angelica, lemon balm, star anise, juniper, veronica, dittany as well as nutmeg. Wine is the standard base for Absinthe but some distillers use other types of alcohol.

If you look for Absinthe recipes online, you will find that a lot of them include steeping blends of herbs in liquor like Everclear, white rum or vodka.

– Employing an Absinthe Kit – Many of the kits available on the web, much like the ones from Green Devil, are just steeping kits. They may be easier than obtaining and preparing your personal herbs but you are merely steeping the herbs in vodka again and creating a flavored vodka.

– Utilizing an Absinthe kit form AbsintheKit.com is a less difficult and much better way to make Absinthe in your own home.

Remember that the alcohol content of your Absinthe depends on your alcohol base.
