This Pastis has no added sugar, and all of the color comes from the maceration of the herbs. The nose and palate show off the natural sweetness that anise provides and, while you certainly could add sugar, the only thing we recommend is a couple of cubes of ice.  This family recipe from 1920 is the fruit of intense research and delicate blending of about eight plants reminiscent in flavor and color to the original absinthe. The grande absinthe (wormwood) brings out the fresh bitterness, but it really is the blending with the other plants that gives a perfect balance of the bitterness, the alcohol and the aromas. It is one of the rare absinthes on the market with the historical alcohol content of 68%.

It’s the only absinthe made with totally fresh-cut, baby absinthe leaves (used within 5 minutes of harvest) grown on the property. This is a unique particularity from the original recipe, which gives the liquor a beautiful luminescent jade color. All the botanicals in La Muse Verte are organic, except for the star anise. Each plant in La Muse Verte Absinthe is carefully selected and is steeped in neutral alcohols of various strengths, depending on the plant, in order to extract its best essential oil. All the infusions are then assembled with great care over different periods of time; some of the plants macerate for more than 3 weeks.

The final product undergoes a meticulous decantation and natural filtration process with wool and paper, just like in the ancient times: quality comes first.

Plants: grande absinthe, star anise, lemon balm, sage, fennel, hyssop, etc.
Preparation: 6 to 8 volumes of water for 1 volume of Muse Verte Absinthe. La Muse Verte Absinthe contains no sugar, no additives and is entirely natural. It is packaged in a black opaque bottle in order to prevent light from spoiling its color or taste.
 


Named for what was the popular term for absinthe, this refined artisanal pastis is a secret recipe created by steeping over ten different plants in neutral spirits for several weeks and then artfully blending them. The main ingredients are star anise from China, seed anise from Turkey, fennel, sage, and licorice. The oils obtained from the maceration are then filtered many times by traditional methods just like in the ancient days. It is completely natural and contains no sugar. For this reason, the bottle is wrapped in paper to insure optimal quality away from the light. This pastis should not be stored in a refrigerator. Sugar can be added at the time of serving, using the absinthe spoon that comes with each bottle.
