| The best absinthe documentary so far!
This documentary covers everything you should know about absinthe. It features the key persons in the field of absinthe history and absinthe production today. No mystification, no scams, no absinthe gimmicks. Just pure facts about a drink (and its history) that is still not so well understood today. Every bartender, bar owner, every absinthe wannabe freak should see this one. The historians along with the locals from Val de Travers in the Swiss region of Neuchatel are telling the historical stuff and the producers and distillers are describing what the absinthe really is and how it's (and how it was!) made. It also covers the famous absinthe ritual and finally puts the crappy fire ritual where it belongs.

Highly recommended for everyone who's into absinthe or anybody who ever wondered if absinthe is a poison or a drug.

The truth is out there!
