from a 'liquoriste' and candy-maker's manual, originally printed in 1905. this is a distilled recipe....what's wrong with this picture? hint: stanise.gif

There's not enough Star Anise?
Jack Batemaster
(just a wild guess.)
pierreverte
this must be from the same source that 'dick' and the 'practical' distiller got their recipes...i guess it louched pretty well...

How much of the volatile oils from the badiane would come though in the distillation process?

I think "none" might possibly be considered not enough.

Might be enough louche there to make the spoon stand up.

I kinda like that slight bite from the small addition of star anise to the Fou-Juice, but that 1905 recipe...

Not in the rain
Not on a train
Not in a boat
Not with a goat.

Maybe we have a very romantic and idealistic view of what was vintage absinthe. Obviously there was also some bad recipes back then.



ps.:
(For newbee)
This exemple show at least twice or thrice the maximum reasonable amount of badiane. Tongue numbing guaranteed !

Bad proof-reading, too. Typos were a lot harder to correct. It might just be an error.

I was thinking perhaps an extra "0" may have been added.
