No he can't. Not without a special license that I'm wagering he does not have.

 

Don't be afraid to use that search button to look for answers.

 

Yeah. Also don't be afraid to PTFA!

What other ingredients are found in Absinthe (in general)?

 

Antimony chloride. :yahoo:

 

Oh, come on, don't tell us you're one of those believers in the anise-based louche fairy. Next you'll claim you believe in Yule Claus, the Ostara Bunny, and Ted Breaux.

He was real, but he died attempting to scale Mt. Everest with a pair of British mountaineers in 1924. Since then, there have been sightings of him--increasingly so in the past decade--but nobody has ever provided substantial evidence of his continued life.

Hmmm, i have been thiking what plants would work in absinthe, that haven't been used yet. In Finland we have this plant (and propably everywhere in the world) called Nokkonen. Green weed that burns when touched, grows about 1-3 feet long and has greenish white flowers. When soaked in water it gives it's taste to the water and has been used as a stomach medicine (as was wormwood) and spice. I have tasted it few times, and the taste is very "absinthy". If i'd have equipment and skills to do HD, i would definitely try it out.

 

Btw, if you recognize the plant, could anyone tell it's English name, please? :)

 

Here's picture: nokkonen.jpg

Absomphe, how could you forget aniline?? :thumbup:

 

As for Occvlta question, this looks familiar I will search for it. If it is any artemisia, it has very characteristic leaves, though. Maybe you should ask in some herbal shop, if they know the Latin name for it.

 

Hydrogen Deoxygenation :laugh:

I believe you are referring to the herb stinging nettle, Urtica dioica. Very useful as a spring tonic and even as a vegetable to eat.
