Butterfly Classic Absinthe

Top 100 Spirits 2015
Return to List

The backstory is a little complicated: first made in Boston circa 1902, it's now been resurrected in Switzerland, thanks to a Boston-based historian. The absinthe itself is more straightforward. It louches to cloudy pale yellow, releasing a mild, citrusy aroma. On the palate, the star anise flavor is assertive and bright, even when diluted with water, and backed by lemongrass and ginger.
