This came up in a different thread the other day. I am not sure who out there in the absinthe world is into old school shaving with a double edge or straight razor. I am sure there are more who understand the enjoyment and benefits of creating your own lather with soap and mug. For those of you, I share this:

I have never tried it so I cannot verify the authenticity. However, I do know where I may be able to get some made by a true quality soap maker and one that MAY work with some here to get a great soap. Lord knows I would love to lather up a bowl of fragrant later on the morning.

Soap cubes.....nice!
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

You could probably shave with the absente. Might give it some use other than blocking the way for bigger and better things on the shelves.

I would use Ridge Blanche as aftershave, if it tasted ok. Since it tastes awesome, into my gullet it goes.

Do we have shaved green fairies ?

This subject just reminded a discussion we had about canned absinthe... is technology now good enough for good canned absinthe, or not yet ?

Already louched? Joe is running an experiement. Ted said no, that the whole point of shipping it as a concentrate in a high proof base, is to preserve the herbal essences. My experience with leftover louched absinthe, forgetten at room temp, seems to back this up.

As for neat abstinhe, it might work with stainless steel (316) cans.

Seems like a pretty nifty idea.
The blackest ravens and ice-veiled boughs
Have spoken of you, goddess of these bleak woods
I yearn for your embrace, spiritess of the melancholia
Show me, again, your sweet face
Enchant me with your rich, cinder burnt ether
Lure me into your arms and bless unto me eternal death
