“First Taste of Mt. Defiance’s Local Absinthe at Libertine, Wednesday, June 24
Join Libertine, Mt. Defiance Cidery & Distillery, and Brian Robinson from the Wormwood Society for a first taste of local distiller, Mt. Defiance’s absinthe, Wednesday, June 24th, starting at 6:30 pm. Mr. Robinson heads the national Wormwood Society and will give a fun history lesson on absinthe while we imbibe.
Mt. Defiance is located in Middleburg, Virginia, making this the region’s first local absinthe. Mt. Defiance’s absinthe will be prepared in the traditional method, using ice-cold water dripped through a sugar cube. Or try it in a Sazarac, or a special absinthe cocktail that Jessie, the Libertine General Manager, will concoct for that evening. Special prices for these drinks and a light food menu will be offered.
After Mt. Defiance opened its cider tasting room last August, they expanded to a second tasting room for spirits in January. Their spirits product line began with rum and apple brandy, but has since expanded to apple liqueur, almond liqueur, and most recently, Absinthe!
Come on out and support local craft distilling and the growing Absinthe movement in America.
