Moulin Vert is a distilled Absinthe, made after a classic French recipe from the 19th century. No artificial additives are used and the alcohol level is set at classic 68%. This level of alcohol sets free the green color of the used herbs like hyssop and Artemisia Pontica that gives Absinthe its unique dark-green appearance. When water is added, Moulin Vert magically louches to an opalescent white. We recommend to serve Moulin Vert with three parts cold water and one sugar cube. Then the complex flavors will open its full effect and you will experience the fascinating vividness of this very special drink.
