Imitations with a mugwort base?
Posted 15 June 2011 - 06:04 PM
I was wondering if mugwort-based brands ever existed, or it was completely made up by some journalists. Once in an interview, a Spanish shopkeeper mentioned that there was such a brand, but I've found no other trace of it (except for mugwort is often used in pastis).

An absinthe made from a mugwort metheglin base, or beer bittered with mugwort/wormwood could be interesting. I doubt that would ever get made though.
A little technological fix to a spiritual problem.

On second thought, this mugwort-thing may have aroused only because mostly these 2 species (A. absinthium & A. vulgaris) are known here as wormwood (called 'white wormwood' and 'black wormwood', respectively) and perhaps they were thought to be interchangeable.

Exactly right. We harvest a few hundred pounds of Grand Wormwood every year...not Mugwort. But I understand. It is amazing what people are willing to believe.
I know it's all nonsense,

Unless you have a green eyed boxer. Then mugwort is still important.

I know it's not much important today, but it's the only misconception known to me that I couldn't solve (and as I mentioned, it has some educational significance:)
