Absente La Crème, available now in select locations, is the first drink of its kind in the United States. Crafted in Provence, France, it combines absinthe, the unique anise-flavored and green-colored liquor made from herbs, with cream, lemon and mint to create a smooth, velvety drink that is perfect for the transition to fall.
“This one-of-a-kind beverage is captivating and creamy, a true original in the fascinating world of absinthe, and we’re delighted to expand our popular absinthe line with this new innovation,” said Michel Roux, Chairman “People will be green with ecstasy rather than envy when they take their first sip.”
In addition to Absente La Crème, Crillon Importers offers four other unique absinthe brands: Grande Absente, handcrafted in France and made exclusively with the highest quality spirits and select botanicals; Absente, the first legal absinthe on the U.S. market since 1912 which is made from the best artisanal distillation methods and ingredients; Supreme Absinthe, a limited-time luxury that is double-distilled produced in small batches for the true absinthe connoisseur; and Absinthe Ordinaire, named after the creator of the first-ever absinthe recipe in 1792 and priced affordably.
“As absinthe has evolved from a beverage consumed in secrets by artists to something beloved by people everywhere, we’re thrilled to offer new inspiration and this amazing new flavor for absinthe lovers,” added Roux.
