That's a really well-written piece, by damn. And timely.

You are right, that was a nicely written article.

Very nice. Now that is worth reading. Most regurgitated stuff is not.

Oh wow, that is one of the best written articles on Absinthe i've seen. It handles the politricks at hand really well too.

Hmmmm, I don't think the journalist understands how the European Union works

So far everything in the EU definition of Absinthe follows the normal process for the EU,

There is no EU definition of absinthe.  It failed to pass.

That is less important at the moment, than the bilateral agreements the article talks about.

Although I need to caution everyone interested in this, there is no serious potential ramification of the Russian - Swiss agreement the way I see it. That agreement protects, as far as absinthe is concerned, only the term "Absinthe du Val de Travers". That would not make it impossible for other absinthe producers to make or market absinthe in either country if I am figuring this correctly.
