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 colour. (BabaYaga Absinthe is naturally coloured and therefore a natural chlorophyl precipitate may occur in bottle over time)
Prepare by pouring over ice or blending drop wise slowly with ice cold water to release its herbal oils and develop an opal cloud ('louche').
TASTING NOTES: Prominent sweet black liquorice, with herbal notes alongside light citrus and mint.
BEST ENJOYED: over ice (often as a digestif), paired with sparkling wine (aka 'Death in the Afternoon') or in cocktails to lend anise tones with a 'rinse'
