Hi from Yorkshire England

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone from West Yorkshire, UK


Really lovely to find this forum. I have been fascinated by the allure and mystery of Absinthe for a long time. It's place in history and creativity. My first taste was of the scary luminous green Czech fairies a long time ago (I think I hallucinated from the sheer amounts of frightening colourants in there!) it was a fairly horrific experience and I avoided the drink for a long time!


Recently after enjoying pastis on holiday and reading a lot I realised how little resemblance real absinthe has to these green horrors. I made a foray into discovering the true Absinthe and have tried a few beautiful examples. My favourites so far are François Guy and jade Terminus Oxygenee. I am now smitten by this beautiful drink.


I love history and am especially fascinated but the period embracing Absinthe, la Belle Époque and it's associated art movements being close to my heart.


Hope to learn a lot on here. Thanks for having me...
