Mansinthe: Marilyn Manson's Absinthe Wins a Gold Medal




Mansinthe -- Marilyn Manson's brand of absinthe -- just won a gold medal at the 2008 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, according to a press release I just received. Here's the drink's Web site, although it's printed entirely in German, so I can't read it.

But lo! Babelfish's translation equates to this:

2 years after the first idea in August 2007 the official Marilyn Manson Absinthe ' Mansinthe ' is published. Manufactured in Switzerland this Absinthe promises to become a true bitebite bites! Distilled from fine herbs, naturally without artificial coloring materials colored and does not vorgezuckert, this Absinthe should inspire also the fastidious Absintheur and Marilyn Manson fan - the Protagonist loves him and considerably in the product development participated.

Um, okay.
