Legendre Herbsaint is back?!

Recommended Posts

It should be available any place that carries Sazerac's line up.

 

Should be out everywhere this December.

 

Imbibe magazine will be doing an article on Herbsaint Original, it's rumored they interviewed some collector that has a bunch of dusty old bottles.

Having a little bit of info about this, I can say that an anonymous collector donated an unopened still green 1940s Herbsaint mini to compare with the recent production.

 

The production version is a spot on replica of the vintage.

 

More after the official release.

 

Watch for the March 2010 Issue of Imbibe.

I think the absinthe world is in for a really nice surprise!!!!!!!

Will all the people at the TX tasting event get to participate in the comparison tasting?

 

The vintage Herbsaint was sent to the distillery to compare with the first production run.

 

 

I could open this one, but I think I'll wait.

I'm saving a still sealed, still green mini, for a certain panel of TXLF oldtimers...

 

There will be Herbsaint Original at the event at Avant Garden.

No, the initial info that filtered out fom 2008 is wrong.

 

 

Look at the posts following that one, the answer will become clear.

 

Thank you

No, it is an absinthe substitute (all things being equal, it's basically absinthe without wormwood). Pastis is something entirely different.

 

Pastis is traditionally made with Star anise (absinthe almost always uses green anise) and Licorice (rarely found in absinthe) and bottled between 45-50% (absinthe normally bottled between 60-72%) and is bottled with sugar added (authentic absinthe is never bottled with sugar).

Cool :thumbup:

 

Now I am very interested in this. Will it be available in Canada? (I'm asking even though I'm pretty sure I know what the answer will be)
