Our ambition has been to distill a classic absinthe with our own signature riff upon its formal structure. Copper & Kings absinthe blanche is a confident American absinthe.
Double distilled muscat brandy in American copper potstills handcrafted in Butchertown, Louisville, Kentucky.
Traditional absinthe botanicals – grande wormwood, anis, fennel and hyssop, together with accent botanicals, are macerated in muscat low wine for approximately 18 hours and then distilled once more.
Absinthe blanche – pure copper potstill alembic distilled herbs, roots and botanicals orchestrated in harmony, with no post-distillation infusions to add color or flavors.
Non-chill filtered, with no added sugar or colorants for a rich, seductive, uncorrupted flavor and natural color. A superb, authentic translucent louche, and excellent natural oily lacing in the glass.
Pre-bottling dilution is done progressively to avoid shocking the distillate and to open the natural flavors.
Aroma: herbaceous, pastoral, subtle layering of typical absinthe notes; wormwood, hyssop, fennel open in the glass. Muscat bouquet with uniquely spicy hints of black pepper.
Taste: slightly restrained anis, faintly bitter, hint of mint, typical licorice without being overpowering or flabby. Black pepper spice. Not syrupy sweet.
Finish: super creamy mouth-feel, natural viscosity. Black pepper, fresh licorice through the back end.
