Premium Absinthe (750ml)
All prices displayed include VAT @ 15%
Our Premium Franschhoek Absinthe takes our double award winning Franschhoek Absinthe to another level. Think of it as “Absinthe on steroids”. The idea of creating this gem followed the comments of Kurt Schlechter, international judge and owner of the Cape Town bar, Cause & Effect, who has often said that our Franschhoek Absinthe is the best Absinthe in the world outside of Paris. He however felt that it needed to be stronger in line with its historical roots.
Our Premium Absinthe is based on the traditional Victorian Recipe and takes our philosophy for small batch excellence to the next level. Oscar and Hemmingway would have approved. From the first sip to the last, you will be transported through a full palate of uplifting herbaceous notes, leaving you rapt by the overall flavour and smoothness of this unique spirit.
Remaining true to her roots, our Premium Absinthe contains the holy trinity of anise, fennel and wormwood. From the starting point, a small pantries worth of herbs and spices are layered to bring out every tone of liquorice imaginable. Derived from our Shiraz and produced in our full copper Kentucky pot still, the spirits are reinfused several times. The end result is a delicious double distilled, triple infused Absinthe that we are sure Von Gogh would also have approved.
As an amazing addition to numerous cocktails or served chilled with a sprig of coriander, our Premium Franschhoek Absinthe is not only a great spirit, she also boasts high medicinal and aphrodisiac qualities (the wormwood ingredients are recognized aphrodisiacs). The two species of wormwood which we infuse into our Absinthe include Artemisia absinthium and Artemisia afra (indigenous Wildeals). Both of these varieties are grown onsite and only the flowering tops are harvested and used in our Absinthe. Wormwood has been used for centuries to cure a variety of ailments but is especially effective against fever and flulike symptoms. One satisfied customer swears that our Absinthe fought off his influenza overnight. The medicinal qualities of traditional absinthe are renowned and our Absinthe is made 100% from natural ingredients grown or cultivated on the Farm.
