Today at the Ontario Liquor Board I saw a new version of Pernod, the anise-based aperitif. It is Pernod Absinthe, employing extracts of absinthe herbs and spices according to the label. The ABV is a daunting 68%. Pernod originally was an absinthe but after the banning of absinthe in France it converted to a non-thujone-based version. So in a sense the line extension is a return to the roots of the company, but at the said proof, and fetching about $80 (CAN), I imagine it will not sell in large quantities.
I haven't picked this up yet but plan to since occasionally I make Sazerac cocktails, in which a dash of absinthe is traditional.
The other absinthe currently available in Ontario is Hill's, a Czech brand.
