Attached Image Recently discovered.

I was asked about this - I have to confess I don't know anything about this product, but I seem to remember some discussion about it, possibly here, some years back. People with knowledge, please step up. I don't mean about the purchase of the bottle - I'm aware there is contention about that - I mean about this product.

There is a thread about it at the Wormwood Society Forum titled "Found Bottle in Attic". There was some other liquor in the discovered cache, but as far as I know this was the only absinthe in it.

Correct, it was the only absinthe found in the cache. And apparently it is the only labelled bottle of Pernod White to surface so far. There was also some wine, a bottle of Kentucky Whiskey and a bottle of Scotch.

I have always wondered if PF was re distilling spent coloring herbs to flavor the white absinthe.

It would be interesting to learn more about this product.

Thank you. It would be good to have better pictures, but what I posted was all I had.

I thought the color of the wax seal was interesting. As far as I know the seals on all the Pernod Fils verte bottles found to date have been green (is that correct?); it would make sense though if Pernod color coded the contents of the bottle with a corresponding wax color.

Ted Breaux is pretty finickular about his tedious old Froggy French wax seals. I bet he would know. In fact, it would be good to have him join this discussion.

It looks yellow, as opposed to yellowed or stained.

I think Stoller said it looks more off white (aged?) in person… but I'll leave it to him to confirm if that is in fact the case.

What other bottle? Someone said this is the only labeled bottle ever found. Was the other bottle one without a label?

I'll post better pics tonight. I believe WS sent over an Advisory Board member last week to photograph the bottle for their records. They might be able to post better pics faster than I can.
