They can can call it what they want, if it doesn't taste good, I'm not spending my money on it.

Musta been talking about the good stuff:
QUOTE

So Absintheo would, were it not Absintheo call'd,
Retain that dear perfection which it owes
Without that title. Absintheo, doff thy name,
And for that name which is no part of thee
Take all myself.


--------------------
When I wake up,
I try to convince myself that my arm
isn't there --
to retain my sanity.

Then I try to convince myself that it is.

Well, you know how talk is:

The Rose was a local rival to his Globe Theatre and is reputed to have had less than effective sanitary arrangements. The story goes that this was a coy joke about the smell. This certainly has the whiff of folk etymology about it, but it might just be true.

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.

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.

I still don't understand a reluctance to try and implement a legal definition, even if broad and perfunctory, that would at least eliminate the possibility of such things as black absinthe, sugar-containing absinthe and, my pet, undistilled, macerated A.a. in absinthe.

Blame it on the tujone.

Get enough and the world looks completely different.

My answers to the polemic would have been similar to as quoted. With time I travel the path of understanding freedom, and slowly free my mind from the shackles of sheepdom. An anarchy of free people will root out the charlatans quite faster than the purchasable efforts of the corrupt leviathan that is a legislature.

It's just lickerish tasting crap. Which is what most people call it anyway.

Thanks for the link. I'm genuinely surprised the Swiss would go after "fee verte," in particular, considering the vertes are likely to have originated in France and DEFINITELY built their reputation there. Where's that Swiss national pride?

I kinda like the Swiss decision. It may make harder for the US to adopt a formal definition of absinthe since it could create harmonization issues.

You don't support a formal definition of absinthe in the United States?

Est-ce qu'Alain Mousse est le problème ?

Most can't carry a tune, much less a harmony.

I'd be more impressed by better product, rather than who owns the naming rights.
