Justifiée & Ancienne

This absinthe is based on a wine spirit that was distilled in 2013 and stored in oak barrels since then. The whole batch of Justifiée & Ancienne has been aged together in a single barrel. Justifiée & Ancienne is not a rebranded Absinthe L'Ancienne, even though there are some similarities: the same wine spirit, selected herbs and the aging in a barrel.

The group was originally known as The Justified Ancients of Mu Mu, and in 1991 they released the song Justified and Ancient, featuring country singer Tammy Wynette, and with what has to be one of the most insanely memorable music videos of all time.
