First try of “1797 essai numero 1” absinthe in Paris 2009
"Description: From the vendor: An extremely limited production of one of the first known written absinthe recipes discovered, written down for posterity in 1797 and attributed to Abram-Louis Perrenoud, Henri-Louis Pernod’s father. Translated from old French and put into production by two absinthe historians using ancient measurements and colouring techniques, along with only local Pontarlier absinthe plants, it shows another side to absinthe that had been modified so many times during the 19th century. It is more herbaceous and slightly medicinal, as it was most likely originally intended, yet quite tasty, and it has a louche that is more of a light, opaque olive green instead of milky white. This may have been what absinthe was like before the Pernod son went main-stream and is certainly an interesting historical experiment.“ via : feevert
