My local nursery has Anise Hyssop and Creeping Veronica, no latin names, are these anything useful, or not enough info?

What should we do for the future? Oh, I don't know. Drive around, have fun, a few kids and we can figure out the future after HOLY SHIT I'M 38 YEARS OLD

Anise Hyssop is no good for absinthe.

If you're looking to grow the plants used in making "traditional" absinthe, or looking to add a coloration step to a blanche then I'd stick with the officianalis(sp) of each of those plants.

I'm not saying that the creeping veronica or anise hyssop won't work, just that the more traditional approach is to use the officianalis.
for some people, there's money in absinthe. And for some, there's only absinthe in absinthe.

I've had a Blanche that used Anise Hyssop in the distillation, and a Verte which used it in the colouring. When used in the colouring it imparts stinky anise scent, which is unnecessary since Vertes already smell like Anise. In the Blanche it had no noticeable contribution to the flavour. It should definitely not be used as a Hyssop substitute.

I recommend using Anise Hyssop & Lavender as bathroom potpourri though, they smell nice together.

I will remember that if I try to make bathroom scented absinthe. :sweeper:

Thanks guys, that is about what I was expecting.
