We are pleased to present Butterfly absinthe a faithful recreation of America’s first pre-ban absinthe now produced by Artemesia- Bugnon Distillery in Switzerland. Inspired by an antique bottle of Boston Butterfly, absinthe historian Brian Fernald discovered the original recipe and sought to bring Butterfly back to life. Originally created for the American market Butterfly has a unique and accessible flavor profile including citrus and mint lending itself to a classic louched glass and a variety of cocktails. This is the American label version, absinthe is the same as European release.

Similar to ouzo and pastis, arak is an anis-flavored, traditional spirit in Middle Eastern counties. Great as an aperitif or accompaniment to his refreshingly unsweetened spirit is a particular treat in warm weather. Gantous & Abou Raad Arak is made with just three ingredients: grape spirit, aniseeds, and water. Therefore, the flavor and aroma is distinctively clean and bright. Thanks to the natural oils from the anise, a traditional serve of one part arak to two parts water will yield a lovely clouding effect.
