Thanks for the link. I'm too computer illiterate to have provided it.

I read the article, and I felt it was decent except for a few points:

(1) Unlike the modern brands, original absinthe contained more than a trace of absinthium

(2) The notion that Hill's tastes anything like classic absinthe is a complete farce. The person who made that comment was a lying fool.

There's a lengthy article on the popularity of absinthe in London in today's issue of The New York Times. The author of the piece interviews bartenders, bar owners and absinthe drinkers.
One bartender is actually quoted as saying that Hill's is the most authentic absinthe available.
Anyway, go to the Times website and check it out.
