Liqueurs de France, the UK’s premier importer of distilled absinthe and brand owners of Enigma absinthe, has launched a series of eight individually-distilled botanicals and an Esprit Vert (Green Spirit) which can be used to blend absinthe. The distillates are produced by distilling each plant separately with wine alcohol and can be used by spirits professionals to familiarise themselves with the taste and aroma of each constituent of absinthe – each distillate is in fact a unique eau de vie! The botanicals comprise distillates of Wormwood, Green Anise, Sweet Fennel, Coriander, Hyssop, Star anise, Angelica, Genepy and an Esprit verte for the colouring step. The distillates are produced in France at the same distillery that produces the award winning Enigma verte and Enigma blanche absinthes.

Ian Hutton, Owner of Liqueurs de France said “By making these botanicals available as individual distillates we are giving people a unique opportunity to create an absinthe to their own personal specification. Both our Enigma verte and blanche are made by this technique which allows fine tuning of the blend. The botanicals are also valuable in their own right as rare ingredients for cocktails and bitters.”

The distillates are available as 20 cl flasks bottled at 60% abv. The six most frequently used botanicals (Wormwood, Green Anise, Sweet Fennel, Coriander, Hyssop ) are also available in a wooden box set.
