BACK COVER #
Jean Mardet's unique passion--absinthe--possessed him one long-ago winter in the cellars of a snowbound fortress in France. Over the years he became a master distiller, abandoning his wife and children, travelling the world, but eventually returning to Provence, where he magically distilled gentian and wormwood in the seclusion of the hills.
