The first legal Absinthe in US is also extravagant as hell
Absinthe had its share of controversy, but back at the turn of the 18th century, it was all the rage. History has it that one Dr. Pierre Ordinaire created the green potion as an elixir, and it became so popular in Switzerland and France, Happy Hour became known as the Green Hour.
People drank so much Absinthe the winemakers came up with a conspiracy theory that resulted in a ban in 1912 that lasted almost a century. In 2007, though, the US government was persuaded by the creator of Lucid that Absinthe is hunky-dory, so Absinthe Superieure became the first legal Absinthe in America.
Lucid is all-natural Absinthe distilled with real Grande Wormwood (not a worm, but a wonderful plant) following the ancient pre-ban recipes. Add green anise and sweet fennel to the mix and what you get is a splendid Green Fairy with 124 proof that will take you back to the Belle Epoque of Paris and the cool artists that tried to drown themselves in the fine Spirit. The producer made sure every i was dotted and every t was crossed, and it shows. It really doesn't get more Superieure than this.
The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Lucid Absinthe Supérieure and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
