I have yet to see any non-anecdotal evidence that absinthe originated in VdT.  On the other hand, I've seen many recipes for it in English-language distilling and apothecary treatises since long before the 1790s, that made no mention of France or Switzerland.  The anise-fennel-wormwood tonic itself has been around for ages.

I'd love to see those sources. I've been questioning the VdT origin of absinthe for a while now, so some harder evidence against the Dr. Ordinaire tale would make my day.

Wow!

Aqua Absinthii, even the name is very similar.

 

Thanks Gwydion!
