Over the years, the Sazerac company changed the recipe for Herbsaint. The proof was lowered from 100 to 90. The fresh herbs were replaced with extracts. Except for a few loyal drinkers, today it’s mainly used for cooking. The legalization of true absinthe in 2007 made Herbsaint even less popular as a cocktail ingredient. Two years ago, Kevin Richards of the Sazerac Company found the original recipe. While absinthe is made by distilling the bitter Artemisia absinthium and other herbs, Herbsaint infuses the herbs into a base spirit. A sack filled with herbs, not unlike a giant teabag, is steeped in the alcohol. Because the herbs, such as mugwort (Artemisia vulgaris), are not distilled, more of their flavor survives in the final product.
While many of the cocktail-in-a-bottle products leave much to be desired, High West Distillerys The 36th Vote Barreled Manhattan is certainly an exception. High West has created their Manhattan following the authentic pre-Prohibition recipe, and then aged the mixture in the rye whiskeys American white oak barrel for 90 days. The time spent in oak allows the spiciness of the rye to fully integrate with the sweet, herbal flavors of the vermouth and the complexity of the bitters – a result that can not be achieved by making the cocktail from scratch. The Barreled Manhattan was named The 36th Vote to commemorate Utahs role as the deciding vote to end Prohibition. Utah was the 36th State to approve the 21st Amendment, which fulfilled the requirements for ratification. As Utahs first distillery since 1870, High West is proud of this historic event, and has dedicated their Barreled Manhattan to this achievement.
