Jeppson’s Malört to Absolut
On October 15, Jeppson’s Malört (@JeppsonsMalort) offered this terse retort to the weird vodka they’ve tinctured with olive and rosemary: “Yesterday, Absolut introduced a new spirit that they claim embodies the essence of Chicago. We did that in 1934. It was called ‘Malört.’” If Chicago, taken wholesale, tastes like anything, we’ll take Malört over gentle herbal infusions. Prost!
