I know at least a few people here are curious about absinthe, so I thought I would pass this along, as reported by just-drinks.com

The Swiss government has said the legal production of the spirit absinthe will begin in the country in March after a ban of nearly 100 years.

The Swiss banned Absinthe in 1908 over fears of its alleged hallucinogenic properties.

According to a report by AFP, producers in the Swiss city of Val-de-Travers, who continued to produce the drink despite the ban, have asked that their product be granted a certificate of origin and quality.
