Absinthe Service
traditional absinthe service performed at your table using fountain, glass, and spoon 

La Fee...La Fée Absinthe Parisienne is distilled by a Paris based distiller on a 19th Century recipe containing wormwood and is the only absinthe authenticated by Marie-Claude Delahaye, founder and curator of the absinthe museum. Before diluting it is clear, showing a striking green color and has an attractive fresh anise aroma. When water is added its louche has great consistency turning a milky lime green. There are hints of fennel and apple fruit characters with a round textural mouth feel that is both smooth and refreshing.  We suggest this Absinthe be enjoyed with the addition of water and 1 sugar cube

St. George...To make St. George Absinthe Verte, the wonderful folks over at St. George Spirits in Alameda, California begin with the traditional components of this storied spirit: the unholy trinity of wormwood, star anise, and fennel. Next, they infuse an array of carefully selected herbs and botanicals in fine brandy to create a spectacularly deep flavor profile and tongue-tingling lushness—with nothing artificial added, ever!  We suggest this Absinthe be sipped and savored with just a touch of water or one ice cube, without the addition of sugar
