History
"Pergélisol" is French for permafrost; I was playing around with Zirbenz and the flavor and scent made me think of the intense greenery still frozen by the winter. I wanted to pair it with herbal and resin-ie flavors, and the St George Terroir did an excellent job of supporting the rest of the ingredients while still maintaining the spruce and bay leaf notes.
