Has anyone tried the McIlhenny solution to the Pernod problem? When Edmund McIlhenny needed small bottles that only gave a drop or two of his Tabasco Sauce with each shake he found some cologne bottles with a tight neck and a screw top (one legend stating that he found a box of them at the dump). You could soak the labels off of (and the peppers out of) a tabasco bottle or a small cologne bottle, pour in the Pernod in using a tiny perfumers funnel, and label it as "Secret Recipe #23."

Or most large cities have surplus & lab supply stores, specialty bottle manufacturers or home perfumemaker supply stores that should carry small perfume/cologne bottles or dram eyedropper-topped bottles. The Specialty Bottle Company of Seattle has one that looks just about right, it's
1.7 oz. "woozy" sauce bottle:

I've seen these "Martini Mister" thingamajiggys at BevMo that are essentially really small mister bottles for vermouth. I'm sure these would work really swell with Pernod as well.

while this method is appealing because of the ease of operation i would still recommend a childs medicine dropper. it has the 1/8th and 1/4 teaspoon measurements on it and accuracy is key when using pernod. it may take a bit longer to make the drink but i know i would rather get it right.

On the top or bottom? And how long have you had the bottle total, not just open time? It could be something as simple as the sugar content crystallizing.

Or it could be a strange and rare new form of life that will one day rise up and take the dominant position in the food chain........

Either way, you might want to start shopping for a new bottle. Have you tried the Ricard?
