There used to be one on the parent site but I think those recipes are gone.

I’ve seen that it exists, but my viewing limitation of only the past 12 months does’t let me into it. Thanks for the pointer though.

Some classic 19th century recipes here:

https://books.google.com/books?id=li8tA ... #v=onepage

They can all be scaled down to more moderately sized batches.

One small note of caution - the recipe for Absinthe of NImes mentions the root of black alder. This is a mistranslation from the original French and should be elecampane root. That said, of all the absinthes in this book, the Nimes recipe was the one I found most disappointing.
