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”.
First, the colour and taste is 100% natural from the wormwood and herbs used, with absolutely no artificial flavourings or colouring added. The particular shade of green is derived from the herbs grown this year, which will vary from year to year. Next year, the growing conditions may result in a deeper or lighter intensity of green in the herbs, which will be reflected in the colour of the spirit produced from those herbs. And this leads us to the second point.
You will notice on the back label that each bottle indicates a specific batch and bottle number. 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.
