External Reviews for St. George Absinthe Verte
We bottle this beguiling creation at 120 proof to keep the botanicals in solution. Sipped neat, its a heady, herbaceous smack to the senses. To bring out another level of vivid flavors and a lovely louche (milky cloudiness) that seems to glow from within, a single, large ice cube is ideal. Adding water further releases botanical oils into solution, deepening the louche and intensifying the heady, floral aroma.Not reccomended with sugar. St. George Website
Nice balance between herbaceous qualities, acidity and sweetness. All the individual flavor notes truly stand out.
