Doc Herson's Green Absinthe Verte Golden Moon Distillery "Redux" Absinthe Superieure Germain-Robin Absinthe

Doc Herson's "Green" Absinthe Verte starts its journey by fermenting organic grains of malted barley and malted spelt from upstate New York. The fermentation is performed with sugar, yeast and New York tap water. The wash is then run through a column still to produce the grain neutral spirit. The distillate is then steeped with 10 different dried botanicals including Grand Wormwood, Anise, Fennel, dried lemons and mint from around the world for one week. After one week of steeping, the distillate and the herbs goes through a fractional distillation to collect the hearts and parts of the tails containing the herbaceous oils and flavors. The final distillate is diluted down to a whopping 66% ABV using New York tap water, and then additional herbs including fresh mint leaves are added to color and flavor the absinthe. Minor filtering is performed before the absinthe is bottled, wax sealed and hand labeled.

The Golden Moon Distillery "Redux" Absinthe Superieure is made with the finest herbs and spices from around the world offering compelling complexity. It is deep yellowish green in color and the slow-forming louche is opaque and opalescent. Crisp, clean aromas of alpine herbs, fennel, aniseed and spice introduce a rounded, savory, buttery palate with a refreshing and lasting finish.

Germain-Robin Absinthe Superieure is slightly spicy on the nose, with pronounced notes of star anise that are complemented by light notes of citrus and honey. Light and smooth on the palate, a subtle sweetness gives way to a refreshing cooling sensation, especially noticeable on the finish. Unique and complex, this remarkable absinthe is definitely an interesting experience!

Philadelphia Distilling Vieux Carre Absinthe Superieure St George Absinthe Verte

Gold Medal - San Francisco World Spirits Competition, 2009
Vieux Carre is batch-distilled using a double maceration process. Using a range of natural botanicals--including Grande Wormwood, Petite Wormwood, green anise, star anise, Fennel Doux Provence, melissa, genepi, hyssop, coriander, lemon balm, and spearmint--Vieux Carre's mossy hue is both lovely and completely natural. This is an intriguingly complex spirit with a rich, opalescent louche; varying proportions of water to absinthe will result in subtle changes in the aroma and flavor profiles. As Vieux Carre is made with real herbs, some sedimentation is normal; this is a sign of a well-made absinthe. Note: glass and spoon not included.

Made with only the highest quality natural components, this is a striking expression of absinthe: though the anise and wormwood are at the forefront, the nose and palate reveal a delicate complexity lent by meadowsweet, lemon balm, hyssop, fennel, tarragon, and stinging nettles.
