The Kurt Russell of absinthes

Beautiful peridot color pre-louche. It turns a thick olive color when water is added -- each drop of water sends white-ish plumes down into the absinthe, like the fog on...

The most purely "herbal" absinthe I've tasted

Although this absinthe is listed under "retired brands," I purchased mine in November 2016 -- it's being sold in the tall, slim bottles. The color pre-louche is light green...

Unmistakably high quality

Pre-louche, this is a beautiful delicate shade of lime-green peridot. It takes on a soapstone-like color as water is added. This is a unique absinthe, with darker-toned aromas and...
