Description

Usually Absinthe distilleries use grain or grape base alcohol. For Absinthe Rebelle an artisanally made Marc du Jura (grappa) from Chardonnay and Sauvignon grapes is used. This gives this Absinthe an incomparable fruityness. Absinthe Rebelle is an exceptional product that larger distilleries would not do, because it's financially nonsense. The prodcution of such a premium quality base would just be too costly. But as the La Semilla distillery is small, they can simply do whatever they think is a cool idea, fortunately!

 

Wormwood, Absinthe and the resulting taste: 

Real wormwood (artemisia absinthium) is a tall, grooved, branched and silvery-green plant. It can grow to 0.8–1.2 metres (2 ft 7 in–3 ft 11 in) ) in height. The leaves are spirally arranged, greenish-grey above and white below, covered with silky silvery-white trichomes. The plant is rich in essential oils. If you rub some leaves between your fingers you will immediately detect it´s aroma. Real worwmood is quite bitter in taste. That´s why you should not use it as a coloration herb. It would destroy the fine structure of the distillate. For coloration other plants and wormwood species are used. Common are hysop, melissa and small wormwood (artemisia pontica). Nevertheless the coloration herbs always add a bit of flavor to the distilled Absinthe. A very smooth and clear taste is achieved by skipping the coloration process. These Absinthes are called "La Bleues" or "Blanches". We also sell them at our store.
