I was browsing around some other web sites and found a link to Wikipedia's article on absinthe history and noticed something interesting:
"Ordinaire's recipe was passed on to the Henriod sisters of Couvet, who sold absinthe as a medicinal elixir. In fact, by other accounts, the Henriod sisters may have already been making the elixir before Ordinaire's arrival."
I'm in no way going against the article you have posted because it falls exactly in line with all the other accounts of absinthe history that I have read, but I thought you might want to add it as a footnote on the page. I'm sure it would make for good conversation among all the hard-nose absinthe enthusiasts that frequent your web site!
Even though I've stopped by several times, this is my first time to actually contribute anything (but hopefully it won't be my last). Keep up the great work, and I'm looking forward to reading any new content you add about the Green Fairy.
