Vieux Carré was the first legal absinthe to be distilled, bottled and sold on the east coast of the United States in nearly 100 years.
Batch distilled using a double maceration process featuring the mysterious grande wormwood and petite wormwood. Green and star anise, fennel doux Provence, Melissa, genepi, hyssop and spearmint complete the complex flavor profile.
How you should drink Vieux Carré Absinthe
Pour 1.25 to 1.5 oz of Vieux Carré into an appropriate glass. Place a sugar cube atop a flat, perforated spoon that rests on the rim of the glass. Using the sugar and spoon are optional. Slowly drip 4 to 5 oz of ice cold water on top of the sugar cube (or directly into the glass), which slowly dissolves into the absinthe.
