Copper & Kings Barrel Finished Absinthe Alembic

As well as offering its barrels for other producers to use in creative finishes, Kentucky-based Copper & Kings has used the technique to innovate with its own portfolio as well.

The Louisville-based company launched a barrel-finished variant of its Absinthe Alembic Blanche, which has been finished in American brandy casks. Distilled in small batches and bottled without the use of chill filtration, the absinthe is described as being herbaceous and pastoral, with notes of grande wormwood, sweet fennel and licorice.

The barrel-finished absinthe is bottled at 65% ABV and priced at US$55 for 750ml.
