About Golden Moon
Absinthe, which is a spirit traditionally derived from grand wormwood, anise and fennel, has a long and colorful history. While its origins remain unclear, the use of medicinal wormwood dates back to ancient Egypt. In the 18th and 19th centuries, absinthe was distributed by the French Army to its troops as a cure for several digestive diseases, including dysentery and tropical fever. When the troops returned home, they brought their taste for absinthe with them. The popularity of absinthe grew, particularly among bohemian artists and writers such as Ernest Hemingway, Vincent van Gogh and Oscar Wilde, all known to be absinthe drinkers.
Spurred by the temperance movement and winemakers, absinthe became associated with hallucinogenic effects. One critic claimed that absinthe would "make you crazy and criminal,"and that it would "provoke epilepsy and tuberculosis." In 1905, Swiss farmer Jean Lanfray murdered his family after consuming considerable quantities of wine, brandy and two glasses of absinthe. While Lanfray had a history of alcoholism, Swiss teetotalers seized the moment and passed a referendum making absinthe illegal. Absinthe was likewise prohibited in the United States from 1912 until 2007.
In 2008, Stephen Gould and Karen Knight founded the Golden Moon Distillery "specifically to produce premium hand-crafted herbal liqueurs using the best available herbs, spices and botanicals." Redux Absinthe Verte is the product of Gould and Knight conducting years of research, coupled with hundreds of experiments, in order to find the perfect absinthe recipe.
The nose has caramel, vanilla, dried fruit, smoke, and toffee notes. It's smooth and warm on the palate with butterscotch, wood, chocolate, pepper, and a touch of orange zest. Finishes sweet with caramel, vanilla & chocolate, and oak notes.
