Artemis
François Aymonier is making an absinthe "without borders", using ingredients that are all products of his own land, except for the alcohol and green anise. He uses a Besançon recipe from 1889.
He says:
"We are going to invent nothing, to revolutionize nothing" ... "I'm a farmer, not a distiller. But little by little, we are going to try to acquire know-how. What is certain, is that with good products, a simple recipe makes a good absinthe."

If people want to get excited about a new absinthe ....

Now that's an absinthe I would really like to try, would not mind owning that still on the left either.

An admitted beginner taking the peak of the distiller's art by storm. Sounds like a winner fur shur. Can't wait!
Artemis
I can wait, and I will, probably forever.
But if I had to make a choice between this and another new thing that's been much in the news, it would be no contest. Even before the worm began to turn, no contest.

That alone makes it worth trying.

I suspect he knows plenty already. Nice set up!

I agree.

It's worth remembering that the mythical creator of absinhe, my eponymous doctor, was not a commercial distiller either.

(Originally I wrote "was not a distiller either" but then I reconsidered that an herbalist at the time HAD to be a distiller.)
Artemis
Not exactly mythical, definitely a real person.
But some of the very best distillers are not, to quote Frank Zappa "strictly from commercial".
