"Be not inhospitable to strangers - Lest they be angels in disguise"


George Whitman, 12.12.1913 - 14.12.2011

The death of the owner of the Shakespeare & Co bookstore in Paris, has brought back memories of my time in Paris back in 1992, which lead indirectly to the start of La Fée Absinthe.  I had arrived in Paris in early January 1992 and had two weeks to find an appartment and a job before having to return to the UK.  Wandering around the left bank one day, I came across the Shakespeare & Co. book shop...

1998: First approval for absinthe in Europe PDF Print E-mail

In 1998 the first laboratory tests linking thujone to absinthe were performed.  Drafted by George Rowley, using the EEC Directive [88/388/EEC 442 & 443], the tests were carried out at the EU approved University of Prague VSCHT Chemical & Technical department.    Rowley had to import rare chemical compounds from the USA - including thujone itself, as the laboratories contacted in Europe were lacking these key compounds.  Signed and stamped by UK trading standards; this set the precedent for absinthe in Europe and beyond.  This document has been censored.
