Did you know that...?
There is a difference between an absinthe 'verte' or 'blanche'. 'Verte', or green absinthe gets it's color by infusing plants in the scented alcohol distillate after the distillation. The plants used in this step vary and each will add flavor as well as color. Coloration is a very skilled process (this is mostly why the majority of absinthes today are artificially colored), if the distillate stays in contact with the botanicals for too long the flavor balance along with the coloration of the absinthe can be spoilt. The natural color can also change and develop as the absinthe ages, most taking on a yellow-green or 'dead-leaf' color. The coloring step may also create a slight deposit which can be found in the bottom of the bottle - this is not a defect, moreso a sign of quality, natural manufacture. Absinthe 'blanche', white or colorless absinthe, known as 'la Bleue' in Switzerland, is distilled and then left without a coloring step. It will not necessarily be the same as an uncolored absinthe verte though - to add complexity without color, there are usually more plants used when distilling a blanche.
