Tamborine Mountain Distillery – Absinthe – Moulin Rooz

Absinthe rose to great popularity as an alcoholic drink in late 19th- and early 20th-century in France, particularly among Parisian artists and writers (Charles Baudelaire, Ernest Hemingway, Edgar Allan Poe, etc.). Owing in part to its association with bohemian culture, the consumption of Absinthe was opposed by social conservatives and prohibitionists. Absinthe traditionally has a natural green colour but may also be colourless. It is commonly referred to in historical literature as “la féeverte” (the green fairy).

This is Australia’s first premium Absinthe – Multiple distilled spirit with added Australian Botanical infusions. It presents with a mix of Aniseed and Lemon Myrtle, China Aniseed, Elderflower, Gentian, Fennel seed, Hyssop and of course the infamous Wormwood. Pours as a beautiful emerald green. Opens a little soapy, followed by semi sweet scents of peppermint tea, cough lozenge and liquorice strap. Aeration draws out flashes of crushed eucalyptus leaf. A big anise focussed entry leads into a hot, prickly mid palate that numbs the lips and stuns the tongue. Anise and liquorice strap flavours emerge through the alcohol. Finishes dry, slightly bitter and liquorice like with the heat taking some time to dissipate. Needs amounts of chilled water to balance.
