The name conjures up exotic characters and mysterious people. Artists meeting to celebrate the sale of a painting, intellectuals discussing the philosophical questions of the day, the “bohemia” crowding small cafes sharing a ceremony involving a glass, a cube of sugar and a liquor referred to as “the green fairy” and “green lady”.
The batch number tells you that it is the first one produced by our distillery and is unique in colour based on the herbs grown this year.
How to drink Absinthe This spirit can be enjoyed on its own in a glass, either chilled or at room temperature. However, just as with ancient tea ceremonies in some countries, there is a particular ritual to follow if you want to experience absinthe in the traditional manner. Although there are dedicated “tools” available for the ritual (available soon at our Distillery), they are not essential for taste or enjoyment. A shot of Absinthe is poured into a clear glass. A cube of sugar is placed in the bowl of a spoon and held over the glass. Then ice cold water is poured over the cube and allowed to drip into the glass. The ideal balance between Absinthe and water is one part spirit, three parts ice cold water. We hope you enjoy this very unique experience. As with all our spirits, we have taken great care and pride in the ingredients we select and the process we used to craft this first small batch of Absinthe and to make it available to you for your enjoyment.
