St. George Spirits "Absinthe Verte"!

I'd heard rumors and now the word is out-- St. George Spirits of Alameda got final approval last Wednesday for their label and will start selling Absinthe Verte on December 21! The New York Times and San Francisco Chronicle are running full stories on it today, with photos and interviews with Lance Winters and everything! It's a pleasure to add an American distillery to the absinthe map. The cowbell on the label is a nice touch.


  1. The map is WRONG. St. George Spirits hasn't been located next to Rosenblum for YEARS. CORRECT ADDRESS IS 2601 MONARCH STREET. Please correct this map! The folks at Rosenblum are going to take out a hit on you otherwise!

    Your label is an excellent find. I wonder how easily and quickly we will be able to get a hold if this!

  3. Thanks, George! The pin is now where Google thinks 2601 Monarch Street is.

  4. Based on the advance taste I was damned-lucky to get, I believe Absinthe Verte is going to be quite awesome. US-legal *and* locally produced? My cup runneth over! ;)

    (I just stumbled across your blog via random linkhopping, but now I'm going to make a point of stopping by, regularly. Good work!)
