Obsello Absinthe Verte, or simply Obsello was a brand of absinthe. Obsello was an award winning "Verte" or green absinthe that was manufactured by distillation from eight herbs including grand wormwood. Obsello was distilled in California.
Obsello was a distilled verte, meaning that it was distilled from whole herbs steeped in alcohol, and colored using chlorophyl extracted from the herbs in a secondary maceration. According to the company's website (now taken down), it was a natural product made in a historical manner. The ingredients included wormwood, Alicante anise, fennel, and five other herbs, spices, roots, and flowers.
Obsello was a natural verte absinthe and was thus colored with chlorophyl extracted from herbs in a secondary maceration process. This not only gave the drink its color but also imparted additional flavor of the drink. To prevent sunlight damage, Obsello was bottled in a UV-resistant bottle and had to be kept away from prolonged exposure to sunlight.
Obsello Absinthe is no longer available via its main retail customers but old stocks may still be found in some US States.
