La Sorcière Absinthe Supèrieure Verte (750ml)

SKU #1053966

The La Sorcière Absinthes are made by Old World Spirits a new distillery in Belmont, California established Croatian-born master distiller Davorin Kuchan. The Verte is a brandy-based absinthe distilled from wine made by local California growers, macerated with wormwood, fennel, anise, star anise and other herbs before distillation. Then the spirit gets a second maceration where the chlorophyll from the herbs imparts a green color. The aromas are not as bold as some of its contemporaries, partly because Kuchan tones down the proof to 100, but the concentration is beautiful. The anise really shines and the flavors are clean and focused. This is an absinthe I would like to drink straight, with no water added. La Sorcière has gotten rave reviews from the Wormwood Society, and from us here as well. (David Driscoll, K&L Spirits Buyer)

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.


- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.
