From the Californian distillery St. George Spirits comes a great absinthe created with ingredients such as star anise, fennel, lemon balm, hyssop and stinging nettles. It was the first legal American absinthe released after the ban was lifted in 2007, although the recipe was developed over an eleven year period!
On the nose, crisp anise and heady floral notes with a touch of vegetal nettle notes complemented by sweet and refreshing lemon nuances.
Intense wormwood is evident at the core with an earthy hyssop and fennel following of course, authentic anise all the way through.
Persistent anise and a slight touch of bitter herbs in the finish. Lemon balm lingers for quite a while afterwards.
