Xenta Absenta is obtained through a secret formula that, always respecting the original and legendary 1926 recipe, provides for the long and careful mixing of 10 herbs and spices, predominantly of Alpine origin, into exceptional quality alcohol.
Thanks to the effectiveness of their active ingredients, the ten selected herbs, mostly medicinal plants, deliver a delicious aroma and a strong and enveloping flavour.
Artemisia Absinthium, the main ingredient used for Xenta, grows in the Alpine mountains, in the north of Italy, at 2000 meters above sea level. Only its floral tops, cut before flowering, are used. All this is done to produce the highest quality and offer our consumers an elixir with an unmistakable taste and aroma.
Its traditional green colour, unmistakable taste and secret recipe make of Xenta Absenta the only true heir of the 800’s “cursed liquor”, consumed by artists and bohemians. However, these characteristics also give it a modern flavour at the same time, in line with times and suitable for mixing.
The 10 ingredients used in the XENTA recipe have been carefully selected respecting the age-old tradition and the original 1926 formula, while maintaining the Italian concept and adapting to modern needs and consumption trends.
The 70° alcohol content comes from the best quality alcohol plus water from the alpine spring – more precisely from the Monviso aquifer.

For years, Xenta has been carrying out an enormous educational activity, in Italy and worldwide, through Masterclass in which famous bartenders, as Brand Ambassadors, form future mixologists and teach them the right use of XENTA during mixing. Our Ambassadors have different geographical and linguistic backgrounds.
They are selected according to the country in which the educational activity is to be carried out. The great universality of XENTA and its mixing suitability allows its use with local and ethnic ingredients.In 2017, we finally completed an ambitious project with the opening of the XENTA ACADEMY at one of our main Ambassador’s barmen school.

It is precisely the Italian way of drinking, the enhancement of local ingredients, the reinterpretation of great classics in a modern key and the experimentation of new mixing techniques, that make our ACADEMY a unique place, immersed in a retro atmosphere absolutely involving, that surrounds and enchants the numerous guests visiting it each year.
