STANDARD WORMWOOD DISTILLERY

Our distillery is founded on experimenting with wormwood spirits. Early on, wormwood was an illusive banned ingredient, best known for its use in traditional absinthe. On our first distillation we fell in love with more than the myth though, the subtle lucid wakeful feel was unlike any other spirit. Unknown to us at the time, spirits with wormwood were nearing the end of a century old ban.

Only making small batches in our hand-made still and using a grain column distilling technique makes for a completely crafted method that we use to this day at our distillery in north Brooklyn. This gives our spirits a noticeable closeness to the grain that ties us back to the upstate farms we grew up around, the same region where we source all of our local organic NY grains from and grow our own wormwood. This is the standard of our distillery – pushing the boundaries of classic liquors by redefining and reinventing the craft of what wormwood spirits can be.

GENERAL INFO

After over a decade of perfecting our unique distilling methods we released two one-of-a-kind wormwood spirits that depart from traditional absinthe, a wormwood rye and a wormwood gin – no anise and no licorice. Just keeping the wormwood, so you get the feel of an absinthe and the taste of rye and the taste of a gin.

Wormwood Gin

Wormwood Gin

200ml and 750ml A deep atmospheric profile with subtle notes of juniper, round body, and a spicy smoky finish. / 45% abv / 90 Proof

An American Dry Gin single distilled with the whiskey drinker in mind. Keeping all of our spirits grain forward is a departure from most gins that are re-distilled from a neutral spirit and tend to be lighter and sharper in nature. With fresh botanicals and herbs in the column of our still, we vapour infuse a distinct botanical character along with velvety wormwood undertones for a deeper atmospheric profile of orris root and rosheip to balance down the bright juniper notes. A round body then gives way to a spicy smoked cardamom finish for a unique sipping gin with a wormwood kick. This is a gin that can be enjoyed straight or on the rocks, but also gives a unique twist to classic cocktails like a negroni or a martinez.

Our wormwood spirit is a complex and perfect go-to drink that redefines what wormwood spirits can be. Substitutes uniquely for classic whiskey cocktails because of the balanced rye profile and oak aging.
