Absinthe Fact: What is Absinthe Made Of?

Absinthe is basically herbs distilled in alcohol.  The three essential herbs are:

  • grand wormwood
  • green anise
  • sweet fennel


Any absinthe lacking one or more of these herbs is not genuine absinthe in the historical sense.

Absinthes also contain other herbs, which vary according to the recipe.

Genuine absinthe, such as Lucid Absinthe, does not contain sugar or dyes — its color and flavor comes directly from its whole herbs.
