Marc posted this on the French forum. Marie Brizzard has brought the Berger brand back to life on what appears to be a truly hideous crapsinthe. Read the ingredients on the back label (they're in English as well as French). No grand wormwood, only 1.5% added extract of Pontica. Plus water, sugar, artificial color, 'natural' flavors, and of course good old thujone. :nono:

Complete with gimmicky wormwood in the bottle.

 

We might as well get used to it, these things will continue to pop up from time to time.

Would you buy a used car from this man?

 

 

Note the distinct lack of ingredients shown in this video.  I don't know any real distillers who don't showcase the fact that they use natural materials and readily show them off for the camera.

I like the little guy on the back of the bottle who is throwing this crapsinthe in the trash.

It caught my eye as well.  Kind of like an instruction manual. 


A little technological fix to a spiritual problem.

Is anything they make good? Didn't you hear? Anyone can make absinthe these days. It's all the rage.
