1518? Are you sure? Perhaps you mean wormwood distillations? Absinthe is an ancient medicine and did not begin it's life not as an aperiti. Wormwood is a an amazing plant and was taken for the effects - the alcohol being merely a vehicle for preservation of the herbal qualities and delivery. I guess it depends on how you define absinthe........:-) Please define absinthe......

Herodotus says:

Of all men's miseries the bitterest is this: to know so much and to have control over nothing

This may be a reference to incontinence. Thoughts?
