The Green Fairy


Perhaps the ultimate gothic tipple, Pernod Absinthe returns after a 93 year absence.

Pernod Absinthe (right) is a revival of Pernod Fils, arguably the most authentic absinthe ever produced with a recipe that's over 200 years old. The company stopped making it in 1915 when the French government banned absinthe, later coming out with a wormwood-free version. The original is a high-proof sprit distilled from Grand Wormwood, fennel and anise - exactly the same as consumed by the likes of Picasso, Van Gogh, Monet, and now, us.

I am also on the market for a Danger Bomb Clock. I think these are a very good idea.

Unrelated: Some people liked my "big butts" post the other day but this is the best blog post headline of the year.

That was one great title, wasn't it? Mr. Atoz cracks me up.
