Sorry about this...

We can't actually ship The Original Manchester Absinthe to the United States at the moment (although we're working hard to fix that).

In the meantime, our friends over at The Whisky Shop might be able to help you out.

Thank you for your support and understanding 🙂

Manchester Absinthe Bottling Note

The Zymurgorium has been particularly prolific and try their hands at a variety of spirit types and styles - and they've now set their eyes on absinthe! This is The Original Manchester Absinthe, presented in the stylish bottles (that remind us a bit of traditional jenever bottles) decked out with an appropriately green label.

Original Manchester Absinthe Reviews


Appearance: very light green.

Louche: Practically none. A very thin haze, but no louche to speak of, sadly.

Aroma: hints of mint and christmas spices along with the typical funk of a Dutch Genever. Not really any resemblance to absinthe.

Flavor/Mouthfeel: insipid. Very thin mouthfeel with no anise flavor. Tastes like a gin with hints of juniper, honey, and bog myrtle. Slight acridity on the rear palate.

Finish: fleeting with no real redeeming qualities. Slight bitterness, but it doesn't seem like it comes from wormwood.

Overall: I have enjoyed Zymorgium's other products, so I was initially excited to try this one. Unfortunately, this has completely missed the mark and is relegated to the same category as Doc's and Le Tourment Verte. I wonder what type of research they did when coming up with this recipe. This is sadly not absinthe.
