Hello there Absinthites!

My name is Justin. I live in LA with my wife and daughter (but am originally from NY). Iv been lurking on the green fairy for a while now but have now begun to enjoy it for the first time.

To be honest, I do not drink any other type of alcohol anymore. As someone who works in the creative side of advertising and branding I find Absinthe to be the perfect drink to open the mind but not get too sloppy at the same time

Anyways, I am preaching the choir here.

I do have one problem. I keep kosher. Which means that I am very limited in my alcohol consumption when it comes to grapes and grape-based drinks.

As of now there are no kosher grape-based absinthes (but I have heard that Jade looked into it a couple of times).

That leaves me with Absinthe with grain, sugar, beet etc alcohol bases.

Anyways, this limits the kind of Absinthe I can enjoy. And I think that once I introduce Absinthe to the larger community of my religious cohorts, it will quickly become the drink of choice for our gatherings, called Farbregens.

The problem is, most sites do not list the alcohol they use. I think there should be a rule about that.

Anyways, I have done a little research and contacted a few distilleries and have a working list that I hope to post here to get your insights etc.

So Shalom Everyone!

There is an old yiddish chassidic saying:
Dos vos es ken oiftaun a Chassidishe farbrengen ken malach Michoel nit oiftaun
What a Chassidic farbrengen can accomplish cannot even be accomplished by the Angel Michael.
