ABSINTHE

500ml, 67% ABV

 

Limited Quantity Specialty Spirit

 

An elusive spirit with roots in 19th century France and Switzerland.  Then as now it tastes of black licorice balanced with herbaceous hints of fennel and peppermint.  A slight bitterness stems from the eponymous artemisia absinthium—wormwood.  Our Absinthe has a striking green colour; entirely natural, derived from the chlorophyll of infused herbs. As the seasons change and greens turn to yellow, so too will absinthe, as if it were itself somehow alive.

 

For an authentic experience, water the absinthe generously; cold, drop by drop until the colour changes to a milky white and the flavour blossoms.

 

It will grow on you.
