My first AND middle names are Emile. Can I get two free bottles? Or something? Anything? Please?

What names these mortals have.

The worst pastis I've ever tried was -- and no longer is, thank God -- made by a Chilean distiller named Virgilio Brusco E Hijos. Called PERNAUT 45. How original. It's an old distillery in Valparaiso, and I suspect that it once made absinthe ... though I've been too turned off by the pastis to do the research.

"Brusco" describes it perfectly.

This is something that probably only Chev would appreciate.

Many years ago I found this whisky in Uruguay. The brand was "Tony Ruber". The manufacturer? Rubertoni Hermanos....

Un Jack (Daniels).

Un Johnny (Walker).

Thanks Peter. I guess it sounds strange because I've never seen a brand preceded by "Un" in the label.

it actually was quite common...'un pernod'
'un berger' 'un premier fils' ....etc.
it was used as a nick-name to get people to easily order a certain brand...
in pontarlier, a pontarlier-anis is called
'un pont'...
for emile it is a matter of charm and legality...
pernod-ricard would not let him use his own name as a brand-name, since it is pronounced the same...a little bit of history repeating...

Sorry to insist, but "Un Emile" sounds, to my limited French, like "One John", or "One Robert". It seems a strange name for a liqueur.

BTW, my middle name is Emilio. Do I get a free bottle or something?

Is Ians version not totally different to the commercial one? At least that was the impression I got. It certainly has a different alcohol content, 65* rather that 45*

Yes, the family name is Emile Pernot.

If you just send me an email from the site I will collect them into a list. There is a little more info there now.

I think it's a take on an old Pernod slogan.

The name "Un Emile" sounds somewhat funny. Does it have any idiomatic meaning in French?

Well as you know I prefer not to make commercial announcements here but nothing slips past Oxygenee, sharp eyed as ever! This has been on the back burner for a while now but we should be taking delivery of the first batch next month. I wasn't going to mention it until I had the cases in my cellar. Details will emerge at Absinthe Online as they become available.

Have you all been too busy lambasting poor Don to notice the intruiging new announcement on the Absinthe Originals website?
