I just got a hold of a small Pernod Fils from the "Palazzo cache", and there is a fly in it!
A small fairy, about 5-6mm long.

Has anyone seen this before?

The seller was nice enough to offer to exchange it with a similar, fly-free bottle
but I declined. I think this is awesome.
I also highly doubt it has effected the taste, having (by accident, I assure you) eaten a couple of these in my lifetime I know they are almost tasteless, and the fly/absinthe ratio by volume is almost homeopathicly insignificant.

Anyway I thought I had to share this:)

I wouldn't worry....he won't drink much.   :drunk:


The room it smelled heavy of drinkin',  

and the sad silent song, made the hour twice as long,

as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.

If only it had been from Tarragona.

You would have been able to sell it on as Spanish Fly.

Goodness. I wonder how old that fly is.
Maybe we can pull a Jurassic Park and extract its DNA for some weird hybrid cloning.

 

You might be in possession of the potential of a scientific breakthrough.

They tried that with me.

 

Turns out, it's highly unreliable. :wheelchair: :laugh:
