|Country of origin||Sweden|
Bäsk is a Swedish style spiced liquor flavored with wormwood ("malört" in Swedish). Sweden is one of the few countries that has never banned absinthe or other wormwood-flavored liquors.
In the United States, the Chicago-based brand Jeppson's Malört is one of the most well-known versions of the liquor.
Bäsk is said to be good for digestion, and therefore is traditionally associated with fatty foods.
