Pacifique Absinthe Verte Supérieure is a super-premium absinthe, hand-crafted in the historic Franco-Swiss style. Pacifique is made in exact accordance to a classic 1855 French recipe, and faithfully represents a recreation of the kind of absinthe one would drink in 19th century France. Pacifique is artisan distilled using historic distilling techniques in a hand-hammered copper alembic pot still. By using only the finest grain spirits and selected botanicals chosen from around the globe, we insure a truly world class product that reflects the undeniable qualities of the art of traditional distilling.
Pacifique Absinthe Verte Supérieur is perfectly served performing the classic French Drip Ritual but also blends beautifully with other spirits and mixers. From the classic Sazerac to a refreshing Clipper Ship - use in the many historic cocktail recipes of the past or a creation of your own, Pacifique epitomizes the true taste of the Belle Époque.
Wormwood, green anise and fennel are often called the "Holy Trinity" of absinthe botanicals. Virtually every true quality absinthe of the Belle Époque era was founded on a delicate balance between these three ingredients. The sweet, spicy, robust flavors of the anise and fennel are wonderfully complimented by the fresh, cool, herbal aromatics of the absinthium wormwood.
Other traditional herbs in Pacifique Verte are angelica, coriander, roman wormwood, hyssop and melissa. These last three, used in post-distillation infusion, provide additional flavor, fragrance, and the natural green color for which absinthe is famous.
