St George's Absinthe Verte is a heady, herbaceous smack to the senses. It opens with flavors of spicy black licorice, evolving into citrus and grassy notes and a bit of sarsaparilla (the "root beer" flavor). Dense and rich with essential oils, it’s viscous on the palate.
To bring out another level of vivid flavors and a lovely louche (milky cloudiness) that seems to glow from within, add a single large ice cube or a bit of water. Adding water releases more botanical oils into solution, deepening the louche and intensifying the heady, floral aroma.
