About Copper & Kings Absinthe Alembic:

  • 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.

Tasting Notes:

  • 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.
