From their website: Crafted using organic and biodynamic grapes from California, and certified organic wormwood, anise, fennel, and coriander from Oregon. Different from other absinthe in that it uses FRESH wormwood instead of dried.

intriguing Blanche, not without its idiosyncrasies
(Updated: February 21, 2019)
Overall rating
Appearance: clear and bright. No tint, no sediment. Very nice. The bottle is also understatedly classy.

Louche: attractive build; fully louched at 2:1 with the fountain and ice cold water.

Aroma: Wormwood, anise, licorice, some pepper and alpine notes. Inviting.

Flavor: sweet anise, rooty, with a slight mintiness. I’d like to taste more wormwood, but that’s part of the problem with using fresh instead of long-dried artemisia. Along with other potential issues, it can get lost in the mix of not liberally used.

Finish: a slightly metallic finish that sits on the sides of the tongue. Nice anise though. Still looking for more of that great Wormwood flavor.

Overall: interesting and enjoyable for the most part. The metallic twang is a bit off putting, but probably wouldn’t be noticed by many casual drinkers. I’d like to see them experiment with dried wormwood to see if that helps bolster the flavor. A nice addition to any collection in any case.
