Tempus Fugit Spirits, LLC was created in order to bring several historic spirits and liqueurs into the modern world. They started with absinthe since one of the co-founders had successfully co-developed over 25 brands of the mystical spirit in Europe. Absinthe was re-legalized in the US in 2007, yet US importers lacked interest in bringing high-quality absinthe from Europe. Tempus Fugit (which translates to "time flies") wasted no time and took it upon themselves to bring premium, award-winning absinthes from Switzerland and France over the pond.
While they started with absinthe, it's not their only focus. They are also passionate about re-creating liquors that were immensely popular before Prohibition. They employ 19th-century practices in crafting various liqueurs, bitters, amari, vermouths, and chinati, specializing in their use as cocktail modifiers.
It's a fruity, aromatic, and bitter palate with red and black fruit aromas on the nose. There are plenty of aromatic herbal notes along with a balanced sweetness as well, culminating in a bitter finish.
