Okay okay, there is nothing that sets this absinthe apart and makes it super-duper high quality, except that we are using traditional methods to create a new school product. So I know many of you Wormwood Socialites will balk and frown at anything that is not strictly traditional, but this is the direction that our company has chosen to pursue.
Now, for you traditional enthusiasts, we will be releasing a verte and a blanche in the not-too-distant future, and these will be made in the classic way of course. I am playing with recipes right now, and personally I'd say the blanche is my favorite, but for other reasons that are out of my hands we are going with the rouge as the first one out.
I can personally attest to the difficulty in making proper cuts in absinthe on a small still. Soon all of our production will be 30 gallon batches, and if we can sell a few cases, we will move up to a 250 gallon bain marie still. Gotta start somewhere, right?!
Anyway, thanks everyone for taking interest in our tiny new new distillery!
