Golden Moon Distillery will be presenting the soon to be released Golden Moon Amer dit Picon at the “Meet the Craft Distillers” event at this week’s Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans. This will be the first public tasting of our Amer dit Picon.
Golden Moon Amer dit Picon is produced using the finest hand-selected herbs, spices, and botanicals available. We have recreated the original manufacturing processes and acquired the original types of ingredients used by legendary distiller Gaetan Picon to create his amer (bitters) in the 1830’s while serving as an apothecary for the French Army in North Africa. The amer that Gaetan Picon created went on to become one of the most famous liqueurs ever made. The distillery has worked diligently to make Golden Moon Amer dit Picon a product that Gaetan Picon would have been pleased to drink and have done so in his honor. Bottled unfiltered and at 78 Proof (the same as Gaetan Picon’s original amer), Golden Moon Amer dit Picon is the perfect ingredient for the legendary Picon Punch, the Brittany cocktail, the Brooklyn cocktail, Amer Bier (Beer with Golden Moon Amer dit Picon), and a host of other classic cocktails. It can also be enjoyed by itself.
The “Meet the Craft Distillers” event takes place from 5:30 p.m.–7 p.m. on July 19th in the La Nouvelle Orleans Ballroom of the Hotel Monteleone.
Golden Moon Distillery will also be pouring Golden Moon Gin, Redux Absinthe, Golden Moon Crème de Violette, and Golden Moon Dry Curacao at this same event.
They will also be pouring Golden Moon Gin and Tonics at the “Gin and Tonic is Only The Beginning” event from 5:30 p.mp–7 p.m. on July 17th in the La Nouvelle Orleans Ballroom of the Hotel Monteleone.
