Vieux Carre Absinthe Supérieure


750 ml, 60% ABV, by Philadelphia Distilling

The French Quarter, locally known as Vieux Carré, is the soul of New Orleans, Louisiana. This city is replete with culture, architectural beauty and culinary arts. Philadelphia Distilling pays tribute to the unique and colorful history of Absinthe in New Orleans with the release of Vieux Carré Absinthe Supérieure. The first batch of Vieux Carré was released on December 31, 2008. It is the first legal absinthe to be distilled, bottled and sold on the East Coast of the United States in nearly 100 years.

Vieux Carré’s flavor and color are derived exclusively from 100% natural herbs. The flavor is complex with familiar anise notes and a balance between sweetness from Star Anise and the bitterness of Wormwood. The deep green color is reminiscent of a vintage jewel. The spirit is not over filtered, preserving the flavors extracted through the natural coloring process. A minuscule herbal particulate is natural if found.

Vieux Carré is batch distilled using a double maceration”process featuring the mysterious Grande Wormwood and Petite Wormwood. Green and Star Anise, Fennel Doux, Lemon Balm, Genepi, Hyssop and Spearmint complete the complex flavor profile. Vieux Carré is an original artisan spirit that combines historic processes with a modern expertise.
