Great ingredients are the key to a great absinthe, and Mt. Defiance Cidery and Distillery
gets their ingredients from the best absinthe herb grower in the United States who just happens to be located in Virginia! Made in the traditional French Pontarlier style, Mt. Defiance uses grand wormwood, hyssop and lemon balm from Virginia; aniseed from Andalusia, Spain and fennel doux from Provence, France. They make their absinthe using a traditional copper alembic still in very small batches.
