Only what you read is all I know. To try to make a quality macerate absinthe is an interesting project. Just thinking about how the herbal flavors will change boggles my mind. A very respected distiller here has on occasion bandied about the idea of creating a high quality absinthe from extracts which is similar but very different. Or as my kids used to say, "It's like a kiwi only different."

Just to clarify Joe, you're talking about an oil mix, yes? (As opposed to this Absinthe Pigalle, which is apparently just a macerate of herbs soaked in alcohol).

Good find on this, Rammer!

Pigalle is famous for being a tourist district, with many sex shops on Place Pigalle and the main boulevards and prostitutes operating in the side streets. The neighborhood's raunchy reputation led to its World War II nickname of "Pig Alley" by Allied soldiers. The Divan du Monde and the Moulin Rouge, a world-famous cabaret, are both located in Pigalle.

When a macerate, or an oil mix, will be as good as a decent distilled absinthe, watch out for all the pig shit falling from above. :laugh:

Loushey's post re-assures me that I will not need an umbrella on a sunny day any time soon.

Not all of said necessarily falls from on high, however. :laugh:

Yes, I'm Krinkles the Clown on an absinthe a beer bender.

You got a problem with that?

Yes. Thanks, Jay.
Despite the falling pig shit, my friend says an absinthe created with high quality extracts (an oil mix) could be quite good. OK, I trust him.

The thing that makes my mind reel with the macerate is, we know the flavor of herbs change during distillation. To try to figure out the herb bill via maceration would be like starting from square one: Back to the beginning. Consider our dear friend A.a. and how it needs distillation to tone down the bitterness and the :chop: just as an example.

I'd love to give PIGALLE a try. :cheers:

If the oils are from a distillation, then you could be onto something, especially if they get rid of the molecules/compounds that makes Aa so nasty, absinthin and anabsinthine, I believe.

Beat me to it with the Pig Alley references. Yup, this sounds about how a walk down Pig Alley is at 11pm on a Saturday night.
