Leopold Bros. Absinthe Verte is produced following the traditions of 19th Century European master distillers. That means they start with a grape distillate base (in their case, this means imported Chilean Pisco) and add the required ingredients to constitute absinthe: anise seed, fennel, and grande wormwood. Other botanicals are also added to the small batch still. Following distillation of this blend, they naturally color the result by steeping the distillate in coloring herbs such as lemon balm and hyssop. The result is a brilliantly emerald green spirit that is the perfect touch for classic cocktails such as The Sazerac.
Good to Know: Bottles may contain natural botanical sediment. To disperse sediment, simply turn bottle upside down 1-2 times before opening.
