Dancehall Absinthe Blanche
A contemporary absinthe balancing the “Holy Trinity” of anise, wormwood and fennel with the delicate floral notes of Wisconsin grown botanicals.
Story: In the early 1900s, when bon vivants were sipping absinthe drinks in the crowded cabarets of Paris, local families were gathering here. First to clean their grain in the threshing machine, then to celebrate the fruits of their labor with music and dancing in the dancehall of our property’s historic press house.

Distillation Method: Wheat mash is distilled to be base spirit which is then macerated with the botanicals overnight before redistilling
