Corsair Red Absinthe Superieure Germain-Robin Absinthe Letherbee Distillers "Charred Oak" Absinthe Brun

Corsair Red Absinthe is a unique interpretation of the spirit, combining a traditional absinthe recipe with unconventional ingredients like citrus, tarragon and red Hibiscus flowers. When water is added, Corsair Red develops a lovely pink-hued pearlescent louche and offers pronounced floral aromas backed by anise, fennel, citrus and spice. The Hibiscus flowers are very apparent on the palate, lending bittersweet floral notes which are complemented by tangy citrus fruit, grassy herbal notes and a delicate spiciness. Although certainly not a traditional absinthe, Corsair Red is a distinctive expression that will also add a unique element to both classic and modern cocktails.


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!

A very rare barrel-aged Absinthe, the Letherbee is aged for six months in new charred-oak barrels. The base grain neutral spirit was re-distilled with grand wormwood and a variety of aromatic herbs and spices. The blanche absinthe draws its caramel hue from a six-month stint in the barrel. Besides the color, the full-sized barrels also imbue the Absinthe Brun with toasty hints of vanilla and caramel. The aging process softened the anise notes to let sumptuous floral and spice layers to resonate. The complex herbal aroma lingers on the palate long after the last sip.

Marteau Master's Reserve Extrait D'Absinthe Obsello II Absinthe Verte Pacific Distillery Pacifique Absinthe Verte Superieur

Marteau Master's Reserve Extrait D'Absinthe is a faithful reproduction of the finest 19th Century absinthe. Made only with fine grape spirits and whole botanicals, Marteau is an exceptional American absinthe which embodies the true historical character of absinthe. These botanicals - Grande Wormwood, Anise, Fennel, Angelica, Iris, Petite Wormwood and Melissa - lend color, complex flavor, and a beautiful, opalescent louche.


Produced at the Lost Spirits Distillery in California, Obsello II is a highly aromatic, remarkably complex, and thoroughly intriguing spirit. While the original release used grape spirit as a base, Obsello II begins with rum. Master Distiller Bryan Alexander Davis reformulated the blend of botanicals to complement the new base spirit, combining wormwood, anise, fennel, star anise, coriander, lemon balm and hyssop flowers to create a incredibly distinctive absinthe with an elegant, attractive louche. The spirit was rested in casks before bottling, lending a subtle oak note which complements the long, herbal finish.

Philadelphia Distilling Vieux Carre Absinthe Superieure Ridge Distillery Extrait d'Absinthe Blanche 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.

Ridge Absinthe Blanche is a classic French-style absinthe produced by distilling grand wormwood, green anise, fennel, coriander, angelica, elecampane, melissa, roman wormwood, genepi and costmary with high quality grain spirits. The nose offers pronounced herbal and woodsy aromas which lead to complex, earthy notes of anise, fennel, grand wormwood and spicy peppercorn on the clean, balanced palate.

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.

Vilya Spirits Extrait d'Absinthe Verte

4 Stars/Highly Recommended - F. Paul Pacult's Spirit Journal
Expertly handcrafted in small batches, Ridge Absinthe Verte is produced by distilling grand wormwood, green anise, fennel, coriander, angelica, elecampane, melissa and roman wormwood with high quality grain spirits. The result is a classic French-style absinthe with pronounced herbal and woodsy aromas that lead to layers of marshmallow, anise, dried sage and green, spring forest vegetation. The mid-palate is richly textured with intense herbal flavors that merge with lively notes of black peppercorn on the finish.
