Now we know why they've been putting out crap and calling it absinthe. They were waiting for someone to tell them what it is!

A US legal definition would be a mistake. … large spirits companies may well influence the development of the definition in such a way as to disadvantage of small artisanal producers.

The best definition would be…you want to drink that French crazy juice and it's clearly marked as absinthe, then you're on your own. Don't blame us when rabid squirrels start rattling around your cranium.

A legal definition. Phuck that. Shakespeare was right. Why don't they come up with a legal definition for a rose? Onacuz then we'd all be liable and triable for saying their shit stinks.

"My pharts smell like roses."

Mebbe it's the rabid skwirls.

Trying to prevent the worst shite to be labelled absinthe is a noble thought. Limiting "absinthe" to be made only in France and Switzerland is downright stupid.

Funny how Francois Guy is involved in this. I guess then that Fennel won't be on the list of ingredients in a "true absinthe".

It appears that there is no geographical claims in the EU stuff, yet. But enough big profiteers seem to be pushing for it.

Make of it, what you will.

As long as members of whatever industry and the gov't are the parties responsible for the labeling requirements of whatever product it may be, I'll remain skeptikal as to its aptness and necessity.

I know what absinthe is, and I know what it isn't. Legal definitions won't change that. Mostly likely they won't even agree with what I already know. And even if the legal definition did somehow run parallel to what I know, it still wouldn't mean anything about quality.

As with most things, I don't favor more government regulations. Especially not when the industry being regulated is their expert advisor. It's not the consumers' pocketbooks that vested interests care to protect. Remember, their job is to be the pickpocket.

Agreed. Pickpokets with the muscle of thugish governments to aid them.

Don't discount the importance of a naive and trusting public. A legal definition can never be a substitute for inquiry and close examination. In fact, it usually forestalls further investigation amongst the greater population. Interested parties bank on that effect.

That's the most succinct post on the subject I've seen here, there, and everywhere.

Listen to the wisdom of the rabid skwirls. Their message is terrible because true.

The veracious skwirls feed on fallacious fart-inflated gasbags.

Beauteous. Absolutely. I agree 100%.
