Illegal? Not any longer! The cult drink is back. Exciting, stimulating, inspiring. Made with wormwood (artemisia absinthium), absinth was banned in virtually all of Europe between 1900 and 1930 due to the psychoactive neurotoxin thujone.Absinth originates from the Val de Travers in the canton of Neuchâtel. Now a Swiss canton, it used to be a Prussian principalityat the time absinth was discovered.
At the end of the 18th century, the canton was home to experiments with herbal tinctures. Later on, the recipe changed ownership. At the beginning of the 19th century, production was moved to France.Strictly speaking, absinth is a Swiss legacy that was invented in Prussia and popularised in France.Tabu is reviving the absinth legend, giving this unique drink a renaissance and making it a “must-have” in all bars, at home and in gastronomy, whether for mixed drink amateurs or bar professionals.Your enjoyment of TABU is always a great source of pride for us.
