Exceptionally smooth with great texture displaying subtle notes of caramel and vanilla brought forth by its barley malt base.
The "Empiric” is a truly west-coast style gin using a unique array of herbs and botanicals found here. While possessing flavours from juniper and coriander, as with all gins, The Empiric, offers a unique deviation from the more common place ‘London dry’ style with robust citrus notes imparted from lemon verbena (vs traditional lemon and orange rinds). Anise-hyssop fennel, rosemary, lavender and hops also present.
Baba Yaga Genuine Absinthe crafted using old world techniques but with west-coast influence. Aged in a myriad of botanicals, which are grown in the Arbutus Distillery gardens, adding other dimensions than strictly anise and imparting a genuine natural colour.
Baba Yaga Absinthe is naturally steeped and aged in various herbs giving its beautiful chartreuse colour, and may naturally precipitate chlorophyl upon light exposure.
