Lucid Absinthe holds the distinction of being the first absinthe to be legally imported into the United States after the absinthe ban was lifted in 2007. It’s produced in France for the New York-based distributor Viridian Spirits, and claims to be made to the exacting specifications of classic, pre-ban recipes. Most critics agree that Lucid Absinthe is a solid, benchmark absinthe that, while it doesn’t go above and beyond into truly classic territory, is a good introductory product.
