The Czechs are Hitting their Stride

Recommended Posts

One of my "friends" on Facebook spammed me earlier today with an ad for the Artemisia Collection, featuring absinth (sic) flavored with coffee, and another flavored with chocolate. Mmmm, I said, sounds great! :thumbdown:

 

The selling point of the coffee-flavored absinth is that it's 35%ABV, but it's still "capable of offering whoever drinks it the benefit of the active ingredients". Those effects are: "digestive, vitalizing with sexually enhancing aphrodisiac charges."

 

With the chocolate absinth at 30%ABV, you may be led "into abstract dimensions" - but watch out, because "in some cases [it] can stimulate the senses." And the effects of this premium product sound vaguely familiar: "digestive, vitalizing with sexually enhancing aphrodisiac charges."

 

<SARCASM>

I gotta get me a tot of this "ELIXIR OF PASSION" and one of the "ELXIR OF LOVE"! Shee-yoot, at only 44 and 45 euro per 50cL bottle, plus shipping, it's a steal!

</SARCASM>

What did chocolate ever do to them?

 

Edit: And give the Belle Epoque back its "e," swillsinth peddlers!

I'm surprised to see how many people here are "friends" with one of the four guises of Artemisia Absinthe on Facebook. This is a front for Artemisia Collection absinthes. By accepting a friend request from someone on Facebook is, IMHO, an endorsement of that person/brand. It also gives that brand easier access to all your friends. Should you be endorsing/helping these people?

That guy from Absintheology.com should do a little demo on how sexually charging these wonderful new brands are, you know, since he's all about exposing everyone to all the facts...

See! See! That's why I don't MyFace or Spacebook.

Also, the days are too short as it is without any other distractions.

I've become friends in hopes of obtaining some review samples. However, it doesn't seem likely. They are now saying that they can't send it to the states because they are above the t-bone limit. Strange, since their own website has an option to ship to the US. ;)

Facepage is convenient to check about once or twice a week to keep tabs on distance friends and family. Other than that...

 

But I think Alan is right in that people will befriend just about anybody on the thing. I mean hey, some of you befriended me ;)

 

OH and to the threads original topic: Blech!

The recipe is based on the hydro-alcoholic maceration of flowers and leaves of Artemisia Absenthium plant, rich in “wormwood” ( the active principle from which Absinthe draws its amazing effects)

 

I'm not even gonna read anymore after that. :closedeyes:

Well yeah. I didn't need no Czechsinth to tell me any of that.

Isn't Ouzo traditionally served with a splash of cold water? I remember hearing something about that.

 

Yep it sure is. And it louches. People don't do the slow drip though, at least not that I've seen. Alot of people just drink ouzo straight, as well.

Just a quick clarification: This is an Italian company, not Czech.

As far as I can see, they don't say what country their absinthe is from. So it could still be Czech. The only thing that makes me think it might not be Czech is that it doesn't say "Based on a Swiss recipe." :devil:

From talking with several people in the company over the past few months, that's the impression I got. They are all Italian, their email addresses are all located in Italy, and apparently that's where the business is also registered.

 

Could be wrong though.
