Our ambition has been to distill a classic absinthe with our own signature American riff upon its formal structure.
Copper & Kings Absinthe Blanche is a confident American Absinthe. Double distilled Muscat brandy in American copper potstills handcrafted by Vendome Copper & Brassworks 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 double distilled.
Absinthe Blanche - Pure copper pot-distilled alembic absinthe - distilled herbs, roots and botanicals orchestrated in harmony, with no post-distillation infusions to add color or flavors.
Vapor-Distilled Absinthes – Lavender, Citrus, Ginger - Pure copper pot-distilled Colombard wine with distilled herbs, roots and botanicals orchestrated in harmony, with no post-distillation infusions to add color or flavors. Additional flavors are layered on top of the traditional absinthe base using a process of vapor-distillation more typical of the gin distillation process.
Non-chill filtered, with no added sugar or colorants for a rich, seductive, uncorrupted flavor. A superb, authentic translucent louche, and excellent natural oily lacing in the glass.
Pre-bottling dilution is done slowly, and progressively to avoid shocking the distillate and to open the natural flavors.
