Setting absinthe aflame is a marketing technique introduced in the 1990s to increase sales of Czech absinth. However, authentic French absinthe such as Lucid was never intended to be set aflame.

Setting absinthe aflame presents a safety hazard. We recommend you never set Lucid aflame: it’s safer and tastes better when imbibed using the traditional preparation.
