Grande Absente is made by Distilleries et Domaines de Provence, a distillery located in Forcalquier, France. The distillery uses a recipe that was created before the spirit was banned, and includes wormwood.
The manufacturing process involves macerating the plants in alcohol for 15 days. The liquid part is then left to rest for 1–3 months, and the solid part is distilled.
Grande Absente is 138 proof (69% ABV) and contains more than 35 mg of Thujone per liter.
