By clipper ship. The "Cutty Sark" needs something new to haul, now that so much scotch comes overland from Canada.

No, that method is apparently only used by german postage. They also sometime put a message in your absinthe bottle and throw it in the sea ;-)

I was wondering how it was going to get over the Atlantic if not by Air in the first place...Could be they put it on a little raft and push it out to sea?

Too bad the wrapping of SC boxes look like pipe-bombs, you might be waiting a while... poor Texas.

I have no clue what is up with my order. I thought it was shipped by airmail, not by Juan Valdez and his trusty goat wandering the landscape of Spain with my absinthe strapped on his back. I've emailed them twice and they just tell me to wait more days. I cant Wait... I'm an American !!! LOL

Spring for the extra $8. For me, airmail has taken anywhere from 5 days to 30 days. Is it worth $8 to wait longer- probably significantly longer?

Christopher Columbus got to the Americas faster than some of these absinthes.

The "regular mail" option is new, and they seem to offer it for the US as well. Is it sent by boat or something? The "air mail" option is the standard old method, which has been taking increasingly long lately. "Regular mail" might take forever.

i could be mistaken but i believe that the regular mail is for shipping in europe since SC is based out of spain... us lucky people here in the US of A have it airmailed.
