Absinthe Le Bleu

Our Absinthe begins with neutral grain spirits which allows us to “paint” on a blank canvas. We macerate most of our botanicals for 18-24 hours in our pot still, Sophia. We then add the remainder to our gin basket for oil extraction. Distillation is performed very slowly to pull most of the essence of the botanicals into the distillate. We proof from 145 down to 120 over several weeks and tank age the distillate in neutral stainless steel tanks.

A total of 13 botanicals give rise to this gorgeous pour. We avoid all post distillation infusions preferring to rely on the Wormwood, Anise, and Fennel to provide a base upon which we build up pastoral, citrus, and notes of Chamomile.

120 Proof


Appearance:

Transparent but almost shimmering. Oils from the botanicals give a slight haze to the distillate, and the presence of chamomile sometimes gives a light yellow coloration.

Aroma:

Pastoral and fresh, herbaceous, woody, deep and floral.

Front:

Anethol and wormwood are immediately apparent with a slight tongue-numbing effect.

Mid:

A complex array of well blended botanicals begins to spread across the palate with a gorgeous chamomile tone.

Back:

The creaminess of the product becomes apparent and a slight bitterness from the wormwood makes its presence known. Chamomile is omnipresent.
