Thanks for the clarification.

You're welcome, but it seems that the spelling "Henriod" appears as much or more so than "Henriot", so I might have been wrong about that. People weren't as finicky about spelling their names back then.

So we have:

Abram Louis Perrenod (1735-1811)
Dr. Ordinaire (1741-1821)
Daniel-Henri Dubied (1758-1841)
Henri-Louis Pernod (1776-1851)
Mere Henriod (Suzanne-Marguerite, an herbalist) (1756-1843)
and her three daughters, the Henriod sisters:
Suzanne-Françoise (1791-1843)
Charlotte-Justine (1793-1866)
Cécile (1796-1868)

Henri-Louis began working as a distiller in 1797 for Mr. Dubied, whose daughter he married. At that time, all of these people were living in the same town, but the Henriod sisters were just children. In all likelihood, all of the adults knew each other and all of them were familiar with absinthe extract, as were, probably, any number of other people. The sisters probably carried on from their mother, but if you do the math, none of the adults could have obtained any recipe from them, at least not for the stuff that was produced in 1797.

Absinthes.com just informed that they are going to publish a history of absinthe in parts. Apparantely their maths is different., as they say that it was Henriod who gave the recipe for Dubied. Well, the details of history blur.

What's that old saying, "sell the most product and you get to write that it's history"? Or was it, "to sell the most product you need to write its history"? Something like that.

I understand that Mere Henriod sold apostrophes in the town square from a refurbished chamber pot.
"Utilisez-les soigneusement", the old lady would say, "ils ne sont pas aussi rares qu'ils devrait être".

Dr. Ordinaire sat on a park bench with a pocket full of apostrophes, inviting little girls to help themselves. At supper time, the Henriod sisters were squirming.
"Qu'est-ce qu'il y a avec vous ? Avez-vous des fourmis dans votre pantalons?", asked Mere Henriod.
"Non, c'est ces apostrophes maudite de Dr Ordinaire. Il y a quelque chose qui ne vas pas avec cet homme!", replied Suzanne-Françoise.

Considering that the Absinthes.com account refers to absinthe as a liqueur in the introduction, a grain of salt apparently isn't the only thing their version of history is meant to be taken with.

QUOTE
Major Dubied quickly recognized the rising demand for this elixier, so he bought the recipe, and together with his son-in-law, Henri-Louis Pernod, he opened the "Dubied Father & Son" distillery in 1798.

I thought it was 1797, but in any case, Pernod was not the son-in-law of Dubied at the time. Only after his wife died in 1806 did he marry Dubied's daughter, in 1807. Dubied had at least one son of his own, named Marcelin.
QUOTE
it is nearly safe to say, that not Dr. Ordinaire distilled the wormwood elixir, but Henriette Henriod

Safe, maybe. Accurate, not so much. I can see no reason to doubt Dr. Ordinaire made concoctions of his own. He was a doctor, and it's something doctors often did in those times. How much he and the mere de apostrophes shared with each other will never be known, but they did live next door to each other, so ...
