The situation in Germany

Absinth drinks never played a large role in Germany. It nevertheless was forbidden in Germany furthermore with coming into force "of the law about the traffic with absinth (AbsinthG) of April 27th, 1923", to import the liquor known as absinth, products similar to it or the raw materials serving for the production of such drinks, to announce to produce, to keep on stock for the sale, to sell or otherwise to take to circulation ( ... ) wormwood oil was (Thujone) forbidden, " or at the production of liquor ( ... ) use Tanaceton ( .... ) ". This ban even applied to the construction of a formula.
The AbsinthG stepped in operatively at the end of 1981, however, the legal position remained almost unchanged, since furthermore the fragrance ordinance (AromenV) of April 2nd, 1985 forbade the use of wormwood oil and Thujone. A basic change got legally valid only with coming into force of the "ordinance for the change of the AromenV and other food legal ordinances" of October 29th, 1991. This ordinance represents the implementation of EU guidelines to the adjustment of European legal provisions. The use of plants and plant parts containing Thujone (wormwood cabbage, mugwort) as well as such plants are allowed by flavor extracts now. Although the use ban on Thujone remained unchanged officially, the limiting values are actually substantial for Thujone in the ready liquor: 5 mg/l at up to 25 volume percentages alcohol, 10 mg/l at alcoholic content lying above this and 35 mg/l in bitter liquors. The basic assumption of these guidelines is that be able to, by the alcoholic content or the bitter substances no larger quantities of Thujone be taken by a man.
