Well, we've been busy as of late harvesting the herbs for our absinthe from our family-operated herb garden. This weekend we've completed harvesting the common wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), the Roman wormwood (Artemisia pontica), and our hyssop (Hyssopus officinalis) which is in beautiful bloom. All the herbs are now hanging to dry and season. The wormwoods will hang for a year to be ready for next year's absinthe production, and the hyssop will be used for this year's production.
