Absinthe t-shirt

Very cool looking t-shirt, with a wonderfully decadent and florid design. Wonder what kind of absinthe she has poured?

Great Lakes Distillery Amerique

Great Lakes Distillery in Milwaukee, makers of the highly regarded Rehorst Gin, also make 2 absinthes, one green and one red. The Amerique 1912 (verte et rouge, naturellement) sound like they are an interesting first effort. Coming in small (375ml) bottles, carefully packaged in cardboard tubes, they also sound like a very nice absinthe for a newcomer to the hobby. Here's what the distillery has to say about their absinthes:

Amerique 1912 Absinthe Verte and Amerique 1912 Absinthe Rouge are authentic absinthes hand crafted in small batches in our copper potstill. Based on a pre-ban recipe they are made with anise, grande wormwood (Artemesia absinthium) and fennel as well as a proprietary blend of specially selected botanicals. After distillation more botanicals are infused in the absinthe giving it additional flavor and in the case of our Verte it's rich green color.

Gwydion Stone, who we interviewed once upon a time, is in front of the camera now, with The Liquid Muse. As part of her Inspired Sips series, she interviews Gwydion to find out about absinthe. Very well produced video!
