Your hosts will be Ronald and Stefan. We both have been the owners of this bar since 2001. We got to know the world of absinthe in the 17 years and accompanied it. We have produced some absinthes in collaboration with Germany's oldest absinthe manufacturer Ulex according to our own creation. For us, absinthe has become our life, full of fascination and creativity

Das Tasting ist eine super Erfahrung gewesen. Schon die Bar an sich ist interessant und passend gestaltet. Wir hatten von Absinth keine Ahnung und wurden super herangeführt. Wir hatten aber den Eindruck, dass auch Kenner voll auf ihre Kosten kommen können. Wir können das Tasting jedem empfehlen. Super persönlich, freundlich, sympathisch - es war einfach ein toller Abend!
