Proof66 Notes

After years of experimentation, Amerique 1912 Absinthe Verte is one of two absinthes launched in 2009. The name "1912" likely refers to the year in which the absinthe ban was instituted in America. GLD is proud of their authentic character from a "pre-ban" recipe (reference to the former illegal status of absinthe) and handcrafted distilling including anise, grande wormwood, fennel and a "proprietary" mix of other botanicals.

About the Producer:

Great Lakes Distillery was founded by Guy Rehorst who left his high-tech manufacturing company to return craft-distilling to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. They take pride in their local ownership and "mom and pop" status using "old world" methods. Here at Proof66 we had a chance to personally tour the distillery, which can be read in detail in our article Microdistillery Profile: Great Lakes Distillery.

Distillation is excellent and the flavoring shows a light but deft hand. Great price (especially when you consider this is 126 proof) and another point is the 375 ml bottle so you can try it without committing to major money and having a lot of absinthe in your bar. Highly recommend.
