Some of the strongest alcoholic drinks in the world

In the wide universe of alcoholic drinks we can find ourselves with innocent beers that maybe have 1% alcohol by volume through to strong spirits of more than 90%. Discover the impossible potions from every corner of the planet in the following gallery:

Absinthe

Absinthe is possibly the drink with the most legend and myth surrounding it. Made from herbs, of which you can usually find green anise and the notorious wormwood, many artists from the whole world have succumbed to this drink. Hallucinogenic properties have been attributed to it, and it came to be prohibited in the US and much of Europe, though it was never formally banned in the UK. The strongest varieties can carry an ABV of 84%.
