Absinthe is traditionally made using a variety of ingredients, but there are a few that typically remain constant in the production of this spirit – Artemisia Absinthium (Grand Wormwood), Green Anise and Fennel.  In the St. George Absinthe, we choose to use Star Anise vs. Green Anise.  Although Green Anise is more traditional, our selection of the Star Anise adds a natural sweetness that helps balance the spirit on the palate
