The finest ingredients
Our delicious Cotswolds Absinthe is made in very small batches. It is modelled on a 19th-century recipe and brings to mind the green meadows and sun-dappled woods of the Cotswolds with its herbaceous notes.
The key to making absinthe is the addition of one set of botanicals for flavour and a second botanical infusion to give it it’s characteristic yellow-green colour.
Quite herbaceous with a strong citrus note, along with the traditional anise and chlorophyll flavours. When water is added (recommended volume – 4:1) it develops a lovely cloudy louche.
We distil Green Anise, Fennel, Grand Wormwood, and Angelica Seed with pure wheat spirit in our small copper pot still to create a highly aromatic and perfumed distillate.
This is then coloured by macerating Petite Wormwood, Lemon Balm, Veronica and Hyssop in the spirit, with a gentle heat. It is bottled at a high strength to preserve its natural colours.
Cooling and refreshing on a warm summer day, it’s the perfect aperitif when mixed with water and lots of ice.
