Another local absinthe launch. This one from Crown Valley Distilling.
Not much info except a couple of posts and comments on FB
https://www.facebook...location=stream

Just my opinion, but I would like to see more before I would even go around the corner to pick up a bottle.
And one thing I don't like to see is a bunch of full shot glasses. (See FB post for Jan12)
meh. nice color but show me the louche!

According to the label, it "has a strong nose and taste of black licorice and freshly mown hay", and absinthe "didn't become popular until the late 20th century in France." 

 

Fortunately, there don't appear to be any real red flags with respect to the actual spirit itself.  As for the shots, those look larger than shot glasses, and I'd guess they're either cocktails of some sort, or—as they appear to be—green food dye in water.

 

My new motto: "Shooting absinthe is like chugging Chardonnay."

 

Edit: What actually squicks me more on this one is the whole gimmicky "moonshine" thing.  If you have a permit and paid taxes on it, it ain't moonshine.

Making it under the light of the moon helps too.


A little technological fix to a spiritual problem.

I feel the same way. Since when is moonshine found on the liquor store shelves at 80 proof? I've tried one of the "moonshines" available that my brother bought, it wasn't bad, but it's just not the same as the stuff you get in a jar from a friend.

They also suggest making it "your St. Patrick's Day drink of choice." 

 

Okay, so it's green, I get it...but really, that's just bizarre.

 

Still skeptical.
