The magic green fairy is back.
Let’s go back to the last decade of the 19th century — the Belle Epoque as they call it. We meet Picasso, Van Gogh, Manet, and Oscar Wilde. They’re either being creative or drunk — hashtag life goals. And what are they drinking? Absinthe, the mysterious Green Fairy, of course.
Distilleries et Domaines in Provence has been making Wines. Liqueurs, and Aperitifs in the town of Forclaquier, France, for over one hundred years. The location is ideal since the Provence region of southern France is home to thousands of hectares of herb, floral, and grain fields across picturesque rolling hills and valleys. The region has inspired artists for centuries. But it is all those herbs and florals that provide the ingredients for their elixirs — of which there are dozens to be had.
Absente 55 is created from an infusion and essence of absinthe herbs, lemon balm and mint Spirits, cane sugar, and alcohol. It clocks in at 55% ABV, so you might want to enjoy this one the traditional way: by pouring water over a sugar cube on a perforated spoon. If you want to go down a more modern path, however, mix it up in cocktails – the possibilities of this unique Spirit are endless.
