Copper & Kings American Brandy Co. Launches Three Vapor-Distilled Absinthes

Distilled In Stereo: Louisville craft spirits maker introduces lavender, citrus and ginger absinthe

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (April 8, 2015) – – – Louisville-based Copper & Kings American Brandy Co. has launched three unique American Absinthe variations made with vapor distilled lavender petals, citrus peels and fresh-chopped ginger. The artisanal spirits distiller hand-crafted these new products with classic absinthe botanicals, including macerated grande wormwood, fennel, anis, licorice root and hyssop, with layered aromatics through an additional vapor distillation process.

Copper & Kings Vapor Distilled Ginger, Lavender and Citrus Absinthes are available in select markets servicing superior mixology-centric bars and high-end liquor stores in 10 states in the South and Midwest currently under distribution. Each of the new absinthes is 65% ABV and 130 proof with a suggested retail price of $60 per 750 mL bottle.

“We make adventurous, exciting American absinthe with the beat of American music coursing through its veins,” said founder Joe Heron. “Our vapor distilled absinthes are “Distilled In Stereo” with a classic, rich, bassy rhythm layered with a wonderful modern energy, enthusiasm and uninhibited groove that surrounds all your senses.”

The trio of new absinthe products build on the current Copper & Kings portfolio which includes Craft Distilled Brandy, Immature Brandy and Absinthe Blanche. The inventive craft spirits distillery began producing modern American brandy in their state-of-the-art facility in Louisville’s dynamic Butchertown neighborhood last year.
