The Festival of Me


Twas my birthday last Saturday, and as my fellow administrator was off touring the St George distillery in the USA (which you will hear about in very short order), I gathered a few other equally louche friends for an afternoon of absinthe, boules and chocolate pirate cake at Obervatory Hill, Millers Point.

From Inside The Green

I’m writing this entry after having worked through two bottles of Mansinthe, a bottle and a half of Kubler 53, a bottle each of Lemercier 72 and La Fee Parisian, a handful of glasses of Duplais Verte, and a lone, muddy louche of Jacques Senaux Black.

Needless to say, this wasn’t in a single evening.

It’s been a few months now since I had my first taste of Mansinthe, but the details of the event are still clear to me. Matter of fact, I’m sipping the last glass from my second bottle as I write this, and Marilyn Manson’s particular version of la fee verte is doing a decent job of jogging my memory.

When we last left my intrepid adventures into the world of absinthism, I was riding my bicycle home with the bottle, glasses, spoon and sugar cubes stowed away in my backpack. Thankfully, Crumpler makes excellent storage equipment, so I arrived home without incident.
