Delaware Phoenix Distillery - AbsintheDelaware Phoenix Distillery is owned and operated by a girl. And an old one at that. I only make this point because there are many people out there promoting a certain style or view that men are the only distillers out there and the more facial hair they have the better they are at (or could be) distilling. So enough with the stereotypes.

I do the mashing, set the fermenters, run off the low wines, distill the whiskey, haul it to the barrels, fill ’em, and decide then they’re ready. Then I bottle them, and am the one who delivers the product to the store.

I hope you enjoy the spirits I make. And thanks for your continued support… Cheryl Lins

Delaware Phoenix Distillery makes three different varieties of absinthe, all made with the finest hand-crafted herbs and the distillers’ skill.

Absinthe is an anise-based spirit distilled with anise, grand wormwood, and other traditional herbs to provide a unique flavor that is this spirits’ character.

Absinthe will NOT get you high, you will NOT hallucinate, nor will you go mad. Thujone has no impact on the taste of the spirit or any “effect” because it is present in miniscule quantities. This was true even in historic absinthes of the pre-Ban era. These are all myths used by people interested in taking your money.

Products From Delaware Phoenix Distillery:

BLUE CAT
Know that in Blues Cat there are no flavoring additives from the chemical industry. There are no artificial colors. The color is completely natural and no chemical stabilizers used. So the color may well change from green to what the French call “feuille mort” or “dead leaf”, a golden amber. This is the sign of a naturally colored spirit, and it shows it has received some age. With Blues Cat you may find that it is quite sweet enough for your taste and you may not want to add sugar. But if you decide to do so, you may not want to use a whole sugar cube. You’ll have to experiment with things to fit your taste and palate. But please do not light any sugar cubes on fire! It is so wrong to do. It is not historically accurate and it does not improve the drink.
