Recommended Posts

well i added L'Italienne and Bairnfathers Bitters to my list. now list is at Pacifique,MOL,WW,Kübler,L'Italienne,BB--i felt like the L'Italienne was really interesting but too "perfumey" for me. the BB was just really,really bad imo- i actually poured it all out. not even sure if that was absinthe, oh well. next on the hit list will be L'Ancienne and Sauvage, then Grenouille? (to finish Stefano)--- then onto 1930-40 Pernod sample if possible-got it all planned out as part of my evil plan....bwah ha ha ha ha

Everything BB makes is cold-distilled (aka freeze jacked). Which for some reason they claim is not a destructive process like distilling. Unfortunately jacking makes it hard to cut the methanol away and also leaves all the tails. It's essentially a horrible way to increase the ABV of a maceration. While methanol might not be too big of a problem when starting with GNS the tails most certainly are, especially with anything herbal.

If you know much about distilling and/or absinthe their website makes for a terrible laugh. Unfortunately some people still take the unverified BS on the site as truth.

 

In short, yes it is trash, you had every right to use it as drain cleaner. Stuff kills weeds pretty well too.

I remember trying L'Italienne some time back...thought it was just bizarre...a lot of unrelated flavors all going on at once. Didn't much care for it.
