I'm Jessica Leigh, and I'm part of the three-person team at a tiny distillery in Bastrop, Texas. We are the first to bring an absinthe to market in the state, and we just hit the shelves in June of this year. You can find us under the name Violet Crown Spirits, Emerald Absinthe. I'm a long time lurker, first time poster here at TWS. Excited to join discussions among the greatest of absinthe nerds. Howdy, y'all.

Welcome. I believe that Duplais and Pacifique were sold in Texas a few years back, but if you are referring to being the first to produce an absinthe in the great state of Texas than congratulations. We wish you much success.

If you don't like anise at all, you're not likely to care for any decent absinthe, as absinthe is an anise flavored drink. It's kind of like asking if there are any good beers that don't taste like hops or malt.----Hiram

Welcome, Jessica!


Just checked out your web presence - great looking bottle and labeling!  Doesn't look like you offer online ordering yet but maybe someone closer can try it and let us know!
