"Absinthe Harvest"

Recommended Posts

No, no, no, not if you want to keep it virgin and untouched by machine and hired hands. That looked like it was a cultivated field.

 

Le rat! I'm in the presence of Le rat! I smell le rat! ;)

 

Ok, enough nonsense. The field looked damn nice.

 

That should make some nice booze.

 

Thanks TLM! :cheers:

Maybe the whole 'natural' thing is all wrong. The secret of pre ban flavor was coal soot!

Dirty, nasty heavy particulate fallout coal soot, from those early industrial factories, falling from the sky and coating the fields!*

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*not an actual hypothesis. (please don't coat your wormwood with coal soot.)

Ok, maybe it is just me, but when I read the topic of this post, "Absinthe Harvest", my first thought was the British spoof of the Spaghetti Harvesting. It was an old joke news report and showed people in an orchard harvesting the spaghetti from trees and letting them dry in the sun. People actually phones the BBC asking where to go for tours to watch the harvest.

 

I envisioned Swiss farmers gently squeezing the wormwood plants until the peridot green elixir was milked from the plant and into a bucket. From there it was sent to the factory for bottling. Yes, I would have phoned in and asked how to sign up for the tour. :laugh:

Too much exhaust in that A.a.

Nothing savage about that wormwood. :laugh:

 

I dunno...human pollution can be pretty damned savage, in my book. ;)

Ditto that.

 

Seriously, it would be cool to see how they treat the wormwood after it goes into the shed for drying.

Damn! We agree once more Absomphe.

 

:twitchsmile:

 

Perhaps December 21st really will signal the end of the world as we know it. :devil:

And I'm on-call at work that week! :shock:
