An Absinthe Kit is a kit intended to help you produce your individual Absinthe liquor rather than purchasing a bottle of Absinthe.
There are different types of Absinthe kits available. With a few kits available on the web you have to steep herbs for a few days and make use of a two step steeping process, with others you use Absinthe essences to blend with a basic alcohol base and still others you mix Absinthe herbs with vodka and then http://myabsinthe.com filter after a couple of days.
One steeping kit I found online claimed to produce Absinthe using a thujone content of 80-90mg! Plenty of thujone and several times greater than commercial Absinthe, even pre-ban Absinthe. It is actually thujone which was considered to cause psychedelic effects and hallucinations when consumed in big amounts.
An Absinthe kit from Absinthekit.com is easy to use and has a wise amount of thujone. The kit contains your chosen Absinthe essence containing the standard herbs – wormwood, aniseed, fennel and star anise, a measure to calculate the essence and desirable artistic labels to decorate your bottles.
The positive aspect of this kit is it makes 14 bottles of Absinthe, unlike some kits that simply make one bottle! The essences are made with real wormwood, not just a synthetic substitute, pure top-quality oils, created using hi-tech methods such as carbon dioxide distillation, plus they are the same essences that are sold to the Absinthe industry – how much more could you ask for?
