Artemisia absinthium is used to make bäsk and other liquors

Bäsk (Swedish for "bitter") is a Swedish style spiced liquor flavored with wormwood ("malört" in Swedish). Sweden is one of the few countries that have never banned absinthe or other wormwood-flavored liquors.

In the United States, the Chicago-based brand Jeppson's Malört is one of the more well-known versions of the liquor.

Bäsk is said to be good for digestion, and therefore is traditionally associated with fatty foods.
