Stimulating and aphrodisiac, inspiration for writers, artists and bohemians, absinthe was banned for a time for its controversial side effects.

Serpis Classic 55º absinthe is made to the old formula and contains a high quantity of thujone (an active ingredient of wormwood). It has an intense, complex flavour and can be consumed straight, with water and with crushed iced drinks, although the traditional ritual involving a slotted metal spoon and sugar is probably the most authentic way of enjoying it.
