Who really invented Absinthe and other crimes revealed . . .

Presented by Lady Kate Henriott Jauw & Baba Teddy

Lady Kate Henriott and Baba Teddy share their new book with you, Absinthe, Alewives & Alchemy (Harbor Publishing 2019), but they also will share a sample of ‘Extraite d’Absinthe’ the original elixir on which all absinthe is based. It’s creator ‘Mere Henriod’ was accused of witchcraft and the recipe was stolen from her to become Pernod’s weaker less witchy version. Kate Henriott is a descendant of the Swiss Witches named Melle Henriod and Mere Henriod and she has recreated that original medicinal extract to share here.

In Addition, Baba Teddy will mix up the original Sazerac Cocktail and share with us four stories of Witchcraft, VooDoo, and the Comet of 1812 in a tale of greed and deception that hid the original recipe from the world. Until now. Please Join us.

You must be 21 to sample the Absinthe and Cocktail.
