It looks like there is a bit of negotiation to go on for the Pinand miniature - but the Tarragona is on it's way courtesy Royal Mail, It's going to take a bit of thinking about as to whether i open it and drink all the contents, or not lol.
The pictures are from The French Mignonette Collecting Society Catalog, makes you want to cry doesnt it - these things actually still exist and were in one place :*-( lol anyway can you imagine what they are worth - anyone care to hazard a guess as to the values of a couple? I seem to remember someone saying the list prices were 150FF lol I wish

Quite possible. There was Pernot, Edouard Pernot, Jules Pernod (that was his legtimate name actually), L Pernod, Pierre Noe, and a host of others.

Is "Pinand" one of the "homonyms" Pernod complained about (and took people to court over) as described in the pamphlet on Phil's site?

I would shoot for a more modern date, the lettering and such is indicative of a more art Deco look (30's - 40's), although it is impossible to say.
I think Bennoh may have been one of the German Swiss makers like Dornier-Tuller and others.
Very nice find Tim ( BTW are those pictures from a catalog or are they just shots of a collection?), you planning to open the Tarragona?

My guess is that it (Pinand) is from the early 1900s. I'm not certain what is meant by "compounded", as I would guess that it was an imported mid-grade (60 degrees). Whatever it was, it probably was not around very long.
I don't think that "Bennoh" was a French brand. Scandinavian perhaps, and early 1900s(?).
Pernod Tarragona is very good. Like E. Pernod but a little more aromatic.

Jeez - look at all this pre-ban absinthe - sigh
My baby - shortly to be delivered to my house : - )
Anyone know anything about this brand - it's a handmade bottle, quite early in the last century - aparrently, but look at the level - no evaporation at all!
