Wormwood Rye Essential Facts

"After over a decade of perfecting our unique distilling methods we released a one-of-a-kind wormwood spirit that departs from traditional absinthe, a wormwood rye. Made from fermenting a rye and corn thin mash on the grain, single distilling with a wormwood backset through suspended grains in our modified column still, and finally stave aging with American and French oak for 6 months. You end up with a familiar but new taste for what a rye and a wormwood spirit can be. Steering away from traditional herbal absinthe, we donâ€TMt use anise, licorice, or other herbs – just keeping the wormwood, so you get the feel of an absinthe and the taste of a rye.
Smooth at 90 proof with a round and balanced body, spicy rye finish, and oak overtones of campfire and maple. Meant to be drank straight, on the rocks, or in classic cocktails – such as replacing the rye when making a sazerac or a manhattan. This is truly a one-of-a-kind spirit that any whiskey drinker can enjoy."
