Arbutus Distillery Baba Yaga Absinthe

According to Slavic folklore, Baba Yaga, an ogress who steals, cooks, and eats her victims who are usually children, is a guardian of the fountains of the water of life. She lives with two or three sisters (all known as Baba Yaga) in a forest hut that spins continually on birds' legs. This spirit is inspired by Baba's tale.
Baba Yaga Genuine Absinthe is distilled traditionally with grand wormwood, anise, fennel, lemon balm, and mint. Blended to 60%Abv, the finished spirit is then rested and steeped in more herbs and botanicals yielding it's natural green chartreuse like colour. Baba Yaga Absinthe is naturally coloured and therefore a natural chlorophyll precipitate may occur in bottle over time.
Prepare by pouring over ice or blending drop by drop slowly with ice cold water to release its herbal oils and develop an opal cloud or "louche". Find prominent sweet black licorice, with herbal notes alongside light citrus and mint.
