In addition to la Grenouille, Stefano cooked up a batch of l'Ancienne at the Zufanek distillery last summer. This is a scaled-up version of "vintage mysterysinthe", of which I distributed samples to 20 lucky people a year and a half ago. The feedback from that sample distribution was mostly extremely positive, with a couple of exceptions. The people that liked it really really liked it. I was among that group that really loved it. I tasted it next to a sample of Pernod Fils 1914 and it compared favorably in my tasting. The "commercial" version has been tweaked a bit but is quite similar to the HG version.

I stole the pics of the labels from a friend on facebook:
