Really? Wow, that's...strange...

Or it is measured differently, like in Germany.

Underberg and Fernet Branca are officially allowed to contain 35 mg/kg because these are not "Absinth", but "Bitter"

...this sounds like a bad joke, but that's the way it is...

or, most likely, they don't measure anything that is not labeled
'absinth(e)'...hmmmm?

Thujone?

Dunno.
Don't care.

From the technique they employ making it, I would guess that any amounts would be so low that the law wouldn't care. Vermuth is legal, and also contains wormwood.

In Sweden there's a wormwood vodka called Bäska drppar that is very bitter. This must be because of a quite high presence of wormwood witch would lead to the assumption that it could contain a quite high level of...thujone! I wonder how this goes with EU regulations? Luger, any idea?

Please note that I'm not bringing up the t-subject because I'm interested in consuming large quantities of it or anything. I've been on this forum long enough to know better. I'm merely interested in knowing how this law in enforced. So no flaming please!
