Ok, I sent an e-mail to a few people at Pernod-Ricard's Pernod division to see if they had any plans to recreate the original Pernod Fils absinthe and this is the response I received:
Now, either they don't really know what they are talking about, or they are just trying to give me misinfo. Isn't REAL distilled absinthe now created and distilled in both France and Switzerland right now that complies with the laws and legislations?
I think they could be really gain some good credibility by recreating the old formula. Other people, such as T.A.Breux are cashing in on Pernod Fils name and original formula. I can't see why they wouldn't want to join in.
P.S. If you want to e-mail the people at Pernod with any facts on legislation, old Pernod Fils facts, or anything that could lend credibility to them once again trying to create Pernod Fils then the e-mail addresses are:
