Tasting Notes

We love everything this husband and wife team make and considering they're passion for absinthe is what pushed them to start the distillery, you can bet these are some of the better quality ones you could hope to find. The White absinthe focuses on the classic profile of absinthe in an understated but purposeful way with stand-out notes of holy trinity of this category, fennel, bitter wormwood and anise.

Staff Pick Notes

Making career transitions can sometimes be rough, but the payoff can be worth it when the commitment is made. Founded out of their basement in Harlem in 2012, Kevin Herson and his wife Stacey Luckow started producing absinthe while he was still working an office job. With both diligence and craft, they have been successfully pumping out brilliant NY spirits for almost a decade. Sourcing the best ingredients possible and concocting the herbal blends in the spirit to bottle aesthetic, Herson created this Swiss based absinthe as an homage to Absinthe and Laudanum (Opium) cocktails made back in the day with the addition of poppy seeds. The poppy seeds add a funky, yeasty component that mellows out the flavor profile a bit, providing versatility for cocktails. The anise, fennel and wormwood are all showing wonderfully in this.
