Absinthe from Eastern Europe is usually labeled ‘absinth’ (no ‘e’)
Eastern European absinth is very different from French & Swiss absinthe. In fact, they are essentially different products. Their ingredients, color, flavor, history, and preparation are different. Absinthe connoisseurs often disparage absinth as an inferior version of absinthe, but again — it is our belief that they are best understood as two entirely different products.
Some Eastern European absinth claims to make you a better lover. You be the judge of that!
One Eastern European absinth claims to cause hypnosis! Such claims are outlawed in the U.S.
