What are you going on about? That's clearly the fanciest screw cap any one of us have ever laid eyes on…

Other than the label, contents and screw cap I really like the bottle. Seriously.

So all LDF needs to do is dump out the contents, refill it with Vieux Pontarlier, change the label and put in a T-Cork, and they'll have a winner.

Easier than reinventing the wheel. There's hope for this project yet.

But the Vieux Pontarlier bottle is still nicer.
What if they dumped out the contents, threw away the bottle, got an empty Vieux Pontarlier bottle, and filled it with Vieux Pontarlier, added a T-cork, and found a better label, like that nice shiny one on the VP bottle?

Does anybody know who (if anyone) consulted these guys?

If not consultation, someone certainly spoke with them before-the-fact.

My money's on the Doubs Mystique screw cap.

Literally.

"12 Months of Development" was mentioned on the LDF page. Sounds like "file under Doubs original". I'm looking forward to whenever Nemesinthe Mystique comes out.

…to do with Doubs.

That sounds funny if you say it a few times fast.

Bummer. That means there will be no sequel with a great wormwood aroma and taste, pretty color and nice louche. It's OK though, that just means less money I'll have to spend.

As an absinthe historian, I was happy to recently find this 1899 engraving showing Peter Schaf's reaction to a mildly critical review of the new "Nemesinthe".
