Booze: St. George Absinthe Verte
The Skinny: St. George Spirits is a distillery founded in 1982 in San Francisco by Jörg Rupf who studied at UC Berkley after receiving a grant from the German Government. Their Absinthe is a product that does away with the sugar cube and allows drinkers to sip and enjoy the botanical flavors of the Spirit with just a few ice cubes. It’s made from Brandy, Star Anise, Mint, Wormwood, Lemon Balm, Hyssop, Meadowsweet, Basil, Fennel, Tarragon And Stinging Nettles.
The Good: It’s strong, very flavorful, and I was warm and fuzzy in the tummy.
The Bad: It’s strong, very flavorful, and my brother is missing an ear. I’m not a fan of stuff that tastes like Black Licorice.
Would you drink it again? No thank you…Plus the hallucinogenic qualities of the Wormwood is a myth.
BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Just kidding…………………..or am I?
