Claiming the title of Australia’s best Absinthe Distillery, The Grove prides itself on our all organic traditional recipe. Botanicals are macerated in our triple distilled base alcohol before being re-distilled to exclude bitter principles and impart the desired complexity and texture to the spirit. Our colouring adheres to the time honoured process of using high chlorophyll herbs which are extracted during a secondary maceration. This Absinthe hits you with it’s liquorice aroma with a subtle hint of herb and zesty lemon. Smooth on the palate with the classic liquorice and herbed undertones and a delightful long, smooth lingering taste of aniseed, fennel, lemon balm and hyssop.
Stretch it out by mixing with a good quality Lemon Lime & Bitters for a Green Dream cocktail. For more ideas, check out our Suggested Cocktails section at the bottom of this page.

"The Grove Absinthe is certified organic, sitting at 50% ABV and will continue to mature in the bottle.
According to popular legend, Absinthe began as an all-purpose patent remedy created by Dr. Pierre Ordinaire, a French doctor living in Couvet, Switzerland around 1792 (the exact date varies by account). Ordinaire's recipe was passed on to the Henriod sisters of Couvet, who sold it as a medicinal elixir."
The best absinthe I have ever had.
First of all, I have to admit that I’ve not tried many different varieties of Absinthe (as yet!). But I have just tried the Small Batch Organic Absinthe, and enjoyed it immensely! There is a delicate balance between the classical botanicals, and the Australian influence, which I really admire. The louche is perfect, and the effect of the drink is long-lasting. It is a drink to be savoured. (And I have!) Congratulations, and thank you, all at The Grove!
