The world of Absinthe is one of legends and mystery; it has been told that Dr. Pierre Ordinaire in 1792 created the first true Absinthe recipe in rural France. Shortly after the French Revolution, Dr. Ordinaire traveled around the Val de Travers on his faithful horse, Rocket, and sold his Absinthe initially as an all-purpose cure-all. Although his intention was medicinal, Absinthe rapidly became the recreational drink of choice. Before he knew it, Absinthe traveled across the café tables from the south of France to the tables of Montmartre in Paris. The legendary and mystical Absinthe ended up gracing the lips of artists, musicians, writers and poets alike, ultimately becoming the symbol of the free and easy bohemian spirit for the masses.
This brings us to today's era, where Absinthe Ordinaire recalls one of the original and most commercially successful Absinthe recipes during the glittering era of La Belle Époque Paris. Absinthe Ordinaire is still handcrafted in rural southern France using only the highest quality artisanal distillation methods and ingredients. Botanicals include anise, sweet fennel, mugwort, star anise, balm, peppermint and of course the legendary and notorious Wormwood, also known as artemisia absinthium - Absinthe Ordinaire boasts superior authenticity.
