This popular verte hails from the pacific northwest, hand-crafted in the historic Franco-Swiss style. Pacifique is appreciated for its balanced classic flavor profile and is made in exact accordance to a classic 1855 French recipe. Pacifique faithfully represents a recreation of the kind of absinthe one would drink in 19th century France. Pacific Distillery is family owned and located in Washington states Wine Country they proudly produce their single batch Voyager Gin with the same attention to detail as their stellar Pacifique.
Pacifique is artisan distilled using historic distilling techniques in a hand-hammered copper alembic pot still with many of the herbs and botanicals grown by the distiller Marc Bernhard.
This elegant, traditional style absinthe consists of Anise, Angelica, Coriander, Fennel, Hyssop and Melissa along with Grand Wormwood and Roman Wormwood. Louches a lovely pale honey hue with delicate aromas and soft spicy notes. Recommended by Absinthe Devil as best all-around absinthe.
