An absinthe from the Eastern province of New Brunswick, from the local micro, Distillerie Fils Du Roy.

 

A traditional absinthe for the locals, but may be available in other parts of Canada depending on how the provincial control stores source with each other.  

 

For availability in NB click here, or enter "courailleuse" in the search window.  (search engine does not recognize 'absinthe')

I see a pot still and lots of mention of Artemisia Absinthium on their facebook page. Both are awesome signs.

Here's a video of the absinthe production from the distillery:

 

 

I haven't tried this yet but based on the video and the herbs going in it looks good.  No fennel though. 

 

Is it normal to color the absinthe by creating a maceration of herbs with alcohol and then adding that to the distilled absinthe?  I thought it was normally done by macerating the coloring herbs in the distillate itself.

No reason to macerate the coloring herbs in the whole batch.  Just pull off a few gallons to treat the herbs and after straining/filtering, add it to distillate. 

 

I'll bet grinding all the herbs by hand gets old as hell!

Good to know. I also didn't know the plants had to be ground up so fine.  

 

Maybe they only did the hand grinding once for the video... Luscious Oily Lesbians!  

 

 

 

 

Edit:  It's been awhile since I've been on here.  I forgot about the Luscious Oily Lesbians! thing.
