Paul Nathan has been throwing absinthe parties here in the US since the millennium. In December 2006 Paul was busted for selling absinthe in one of the largest alcohol busts in modern California history and the only absinthe bust in modern times.
Police confiscated over a hundred bottles of absinthe. All charges were dropped and after lengthy legal maneuvering all absinthe was returned.
Paul consults with absinthe companies. Speaks on the history of absinthe as well as on the subject of contemporary absinthe. When not working on absintheology Paul makes his living as a professional magician, traveling around the world doing shows and searching for out of the way distilleries and undiscovered absinthe.
