I heard a rumour that Legendre Herbsaint is coming back, anyone know?

Legendre Herbsaint never went away. I think you are talking about their new absinthe which is about to be launched, it is used in the Sazerac cocktail.

Interesting! Wasn't Herbsaint originally an absinthe substitute?

Yes Herbsaint was a kind of legal absinthe style drink without wormwood, from the 1930s I think.

Absente was also an absinthe substitute (using southern wormwood..which has NO thujone for the American market) and they now make another one with wormwood (Artemisia) called....ahh I can't recall what it is called (hangover)

"new absinthe which is about to be launched"

I think that it was originally an absinthe and then changed it's name / formula after the ban. That makes Legendre Herbsaint Absinthe the first US absinthe of old to be re-introduced..... in a "thujone -free" state of course. Was it an absinthe?

Legendre Herbsaint Absinthe "is returning its absinthe in just about the same formula, and with the same old-fashioned label"
