What's this one? The funny thing is I knew of a micro batch product from a long time ago with the same name, but this is definitely not that absinthe.

I just got an email about this one the other day…

I was actually waiting for you to try it.

The name was inappropriate. Most companies do some form of "due diligence" before using a brand name in commerce. Even a quick google check would show that an absinthe that name had already been produced albeit not trademarked.

I would be curious to hear from a representative of the company to know why they used the name. Did they not know it was already used or did they not care?

Perhaps the distiller was not aware of it, but I'd be very surprised if LDF wasn't aware of it. Since the original was made for no purpose beyond sharing, I suppose the name is just as share-able as the contents were.

But I think whoever made the original Nemesinthe should get a free case of Jade as a good will gesture.

I wish this wasn't in Advertese. They spent 12 months developing something, with a goal in mind. What was it? What makes this absinthe different?

It sounds dangerously close to "made especially for cocktails".
Translation - "We don't how to make a proper Absinthe, so this is what we came up with".

Thus, a contemporary absinth(e) for modern drinkers.

That it's for "modern drinkers" who like an absinthe that has a "fresh taste with a kick" and is named after an HG that was named after a Greek Goddesses, dumbass. Other absinthes are for archaic drinkers who like mildewed tastes that are kickless.

Prezactly. And then the nerve of using that name -- a double insult.

A crotchpunch is in order.

A fine absinthe is the product of knowledge, craftsmanship, and talent. An exceptional absinthe is the product of those things plus obsession. Most absinthe is the product of marketing.

Appropriate.

After all, Nemesis was "known as the Goddess of Vengeance and Retribution."
