Famous Czech absinth distiller Kyle J. Bairnsfather with Johnny Depp in Prague
Here’s Marilyn Manson on his first absinthe experience and Y2K with Johnny Depp – so where’s his Mansinthe brand of absinthe already! We’ve been waiting six months now!
The first time I drank it (absinthe) was in New Orleans, in 1996, when I was making Antichrist Superstar. It was very undistilled, similar to moonshine. I didn’t drink absinthe again until Y2K. I spent that New Year’s Eve drinking absinthe with Johnny Depp in the south of France. We were ready for the apocalypse, and when it didn’t come, we were disappointed, so we drank more absinthe and set off fireworks. Since then, I don’t drink booze, I drink absinthe.
