In 1998 the first laboratory tests linking thujone to absinthe were performed. Drafted by George Rowley, using the EEC Directive [88/388/EEC 442 & 443], the tests were carried out at the EU approved University of Prague VSCHT Chemical & Technical department. Rowley had to import rare chemical compounds from the USA – including thujone itself, as the laboratories contacted in Europe were lacking these key compounds. Signed and stamped by UK trading standards; this set the precedent for absinthe in Europe and beyond. This document has been censored.
