Mysterious Absinthe for jazzy evenings.
Up in the northern part of Louisville, KY, right next to the Ohio River and a shout away from Indiana, there's a picturesque neighborhood called Butchertown. It used to be home to butchers, brawlers and brewers, today it houses artists, artisans and distillers. One of them is a bold distillery of Copper & King American Brandy Company. They produce American Brandy, Absinthe and Gin.
Now, when it comes to Absinthe, or as poetic types call it, The Green Fairy, there's a lot of scaremongering that it's a psychoactive drug and hallucinogen. As much as it would be fun, it also isn't true, and many famous writers loved the potion: Hemingway, Joyce, Verlaine, Proust, etc. Copper & Kings bring a wonderful Absinthe expression carefully concocted by combining classic botanicals such as anis, fennel and wormwood. This non-chill filtered emerald beauty with an authentic herbaceous nose and natural pastoral flavors will take you to smoke-filled French bars with jazz and flappers. Maybe you'll write the next American novel while sipping on it. Oh, and screw the consumption rules. Have this potion on rocks, as a julep, or in wonderful cocktails such as Buck Rogers, Chrysanthemum, or Sazerac.
