In the mailbox from LDF this morning:

"Hot on the heels of our first offering from Switzerland comes another classic 'La Bleue' style Swiss absinthe. Kallnacher from the Matter-Luginbühl distillery. Kallnacher Absinth (using the local German-Swiss spelling)"

Oxy and I debated that spelling thing during FAQ creation - I was afraid of this. Will someone please teach these people how to spell absinthe?

It's german. I'm pretty sure that's how they've always spelled it.

In my own language, I know for a fact that the spellings "absinth" and "absint" was used around 1900, while "absinthe" probably wasn't.

So it goes.

So first we have absinthe coming from the Czech Republic, and now absinth from Switzerland? What's going on here?

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.

Meanwhile all non-American English speakers are reading this site saying "Can somebody teach them how to spell colour?"
(Insert Sarcasm emoticon here)

It looks like there's room on the label for an E. Maybe we could ask LDF to include a sharpie and we'll write in an E on the label if it ends up tasting good...

It's from the German speaking part of Switzerland.

Well, what I meant was that the language is german.

But then again, I've met swiss people who would deny that - who claim that swiss german is a language all on its own and not just a funny german dialect. If it would get me a drink, I'd admit anything.

So it goes.

Modern German pronunciation does, distinctly, enunciate the E.
