Two years after the initial idea to do develop an absinthe together with Marilyn Manson, it was finished, Markus Lion looks back: “Manson was intensely involved in the development, constantly tasting the samples, giving his opinion and providing suggestions for changes. When he was completely satisfied with a prototype, the final implementation was swift.” The artist, whose real name is Brian Hugh Warner, presented his “Mansinthe” at the private viewing of his exhibition in Galerie Schenk in Cologne, on 27th June 2007.
How to prepare “Mansinthe”
Pour 3cl of “Mansinthe” into a large stemmed glass, then place a slotted absinthe spoon and sugar cube over the glass. Slowly drip ice-water over the sugar cube until dissolved, then fill glass with water to preferred taste.You may also use an Absinthefountain – that makes a perfect preparation as well as a Brouilleur. This fine spirit is also enjoyed by the most discerning connoisseurs without sugar.
