    Welcome to the WS!
  4. Greetings fellow Absinthe Connoisseurs! My name is Izaak, I am from Queensland, Australia, and I am in love with all things Absinthe! My favourite Absinthes are the entire Jade collection, Butterfly Boston, Lucid, Roquette 1797..... and many more! I have been browsing the website ajd forums for about 2 years now and I figured it is finally time to get immersed in the Wormwood society! Just want to thank you all for providing information, brand reviews and historical points of interest that have helped me over the last 2 years. I hope to contribute to the forum as well ❤️ Any friend of the Green Fairy is a friend of mine! (and I don't mean the crappy Czech brand that looks like green cordial... ) 😛 I am also getting curious about the art of distillation, for information on distillation and historical Absinthe recipes, where would one look? Yours truly, Izaak.

    Hello and welcome Congratulations on the success of your absinthe!
  6. Hello fellow absintheurs, I am delighted to be inside the forum and am happy to meet you all. My name is Lorien and I like on the banks of Loch Ness in Scotland. My husband and I founded a wee distillery at our home and started out with gin but I have always been captivated by the social history and culture of Absinthe. After doing lots of research here and along the Franco-Swiss border before working with Patrick Grand to develop a selection of recipes containing Scottish botanicals. I took 3 versions home and then tweaked them until I got one that I was happy with. Hey presto - Loch Ness Absinthe Blanche! This is the first Scottish Absinthe to contain wormwood grown in Scotland and I am proud as punch with it. I am now researching how to make a most excellent verte and look forward to cultivating a deeper relationship with absinthe and everything that surrounds it.

    I really like the 68% one got through Sensatonics.de, having had a few glasses from the bottle, a very pleasing colour, wonderful louche and a great taste and aroma, some of the aromas similar to the Capricieuse, this is the third Swiss one I've tried and I'm impressed.

    Capricieuse 72

    Bump: Have been trying a bottle and absolutely loving it, better than the Alandia Suisse La Bleue, I skipped La Clandestine for its stronger relation and have no regrets, delicious both in aroma and taste, creamy and intense.

    Emile Pernot Distillery

    Well that's really a shame, but it in no way compares to the sad news in your post on Simon Broadley-Pederson. I never expected these kinds of setbacks.

    Simon Broadley-Pedersen is a fraud :/

    For more developments, follow Absinthe Originals’ FB group. Apparently Wolfgang Klotz is also implicated in a separate scheme where he is buying fakes and reselling as authentic.
  22. Just posted by our friend, Cary Rene Bonnecaze. More info to come... —————- Many of us in the absinthe community know, or are familiar with, Simon Broadley-Pedersen from London, England. Throughout the years he has been well liked, thought of as knowledgeable in the field of absinthe and a trusted friend to many of us. But until recently, what none of us knew, is that Simon is also a fraud. Simon has been selling to many of us fake pre-ban (before 1915) samples and bottles of absinthe for years. He buys empty pre-ban bottles, often on eBay, fills them with something other than its original contents, redresses them as originals and sells them as authentic pre-ban absinthe bottles. And in the case of samples, blends a combination of modern and Tarragona-era Pernod Fils, then adds certain essences that can change its flavor so the taste mimics that of an antique absinthe. For those of you who are not aware, a sample of pre-ban absinthe can cost hundreds of euros per 50ML, while a vintage bottle can easily reach into the thousands of euros. Many of us who have purchased from Simon never had a reason to doubt the authenticity of his absinthes. He sold himself well. With the help of well-known and respected absinthe collectors, sellers and makers from France and the U.S., over time we have compiled overwhelming evidences of his intentional deception. We recently confronted him, and he was given a number of days to respond with a solution - to right his wrong, by repaying victims of his scams, or this private matter would go public. He chose not to respond and to delete his Facebook account. Simon took advantage of friendships and did so while committing fraud. While what Simon has done is unforgivable and illegal, please do not hold others in our community in the same light. We have truly reputable and professional sellers, which should never be confused with likes of Simon. We all are here out of our fondness and love of absinthe. This is why we come to these groups and forums, to share and to learn, as friends. Hopefully we can use this moving forward as a way to bring us all closer together. Santé ! Attached are examples of Simon’s handiwork as proof, and we have much more. Beaucoup d’entre nous dans la communauté de l’absinthe connaissent, ou sont familiers, avec Simon Broadley-Pedersen de Londres, en Angleterre. Tout au long des années, il a été très apprécié et vu comme quelqu'un de compétent dans le domaine de l’absinthe, mais il a été aussi un ami de confiance pour beaucoup d’entre nous. Mais jusqu’à récemment, ce qu’aucun d’entre nous ne savait, c’est que Simon est aussi un escroc. Simon a vendu à beaucoup d’entre nous des échantillons et des bouteilles d’absinthe d'avant 1915 contrefaits, et ce pendant des années. Il achète des bouteilles vides de marques d'antan, souvent sur eBay, les remplit avec autre chose que son contenu original, les refaçonne pour qu'elles paraissent d'origine, et les vend comme authentiques bouteilles d’absinthe d'avant 1915. Et dans le cas des échantillons, il mélange de l'absinthe moderne avec de la Pernod Fils époque Tarragone, puis ajoute certaines essences afin de changer le goût, de sorte qu'il imite celui d’une absinthe d'époque. Pour ceux d’entre vous qui ne sont pas au courant, un échantillon de 50ml d’absinthe d'avant 1915 peut coûter des centaines d’euros, alors qu’une bouteille d'époque peut facilement atteindre les milliers d’euros. Ceux d’entre nous qui ont acheté ces produits à Simon n’ont jamais eu de raison de douter de l’authenticité de ses absinthes. Il connaissait bien son affaire. Avec l’aide de collectionneurs bien connus et respectés, vendeurs et distillateurs de France et des États-Unis, nous avons amassé au fil du temps des preuves accablantes de cette escroquerie intentionnelle. Nous l'avons récemment confronté à nos preuves, et il avait un certain nombre de jours pour nous répondre avec une solution claire pour corriger ses méfaits et rembourser les victimes de ses escroqueries. Sans réponse de sa part, il était prévenu que cette affaire serait rendue publique. Il a choisi de ne pas répondre et de supprimer son compte Facebook. Simon a profité de notre amitié pour commettre ses méfaits. Bien que ce que Simon a fait est impardonnable et illégal, merci de ne pas mettre tout le monde de notre communauté dans le même chapeau. Nous avons des vendeurs vraiment réputés et professionnels, qui ne doivent jamais être confondus avec des gens comme Simon. Nous sommes tous ici pour notre passion et notre amour de l’absinthe. C’est ce pourquoi nous venons dans ces groupes et forums, afin de partager et d'apprendre, en tant qu’amis. J’espère que ce pas en avant nous permettra de tous nous rapprocher plus encore. Santé! Ci-joint des exemples des œuvres de Simon en tant que preuves, et nous en avons beaucoup plus.
