Yes, very nice!

The Havel bottle is sold wholesale by Global Amici as an "Antico spigot bottle" (www.globalamici.com) but doesn't seem to be retailed on the web anywhere...

The spigot jar I have now just keeps cool in the fridge.

all glass, hour-glass shape (sort of like the old versinthe model-that's the old model) with two, yes, count them, two glass-trunked spigots, coming out of either side of the rounded bottom of the hour glass, finished by a conical glass base, all seemingly of one blown piece with 'VERSINTHE aux plantes d'absinthe' frosted on it, topped by a little pointed glass cap/lid...

Could you describe it verbally? I know it's a pain, but now we're curious!

here's something worth waiting for, but they haven't yet been released...if you're interested, send a message to the guys at liquoristerie de provence...www.versinthe.net
and let them know you want one (they have to order in large quantities from the glass-blower)
looks fragile, but isn't, has plastic spigots (oh, well) a bit hard to clean, and a little short for the tall east glasses...but, all-and-all, rather nice and an original design (better than their first one) and a tad bit better than the havel bottle (you can put ice in it) should be around +/- $200, so not cheap, but better than whatever else is out there now...

A department store named "Falabella" sells them here in Chile.

...if probably not $100/L worth of drinkable.

But the really scary thing is: when I was looking for a fountain some months back, I found that same bottle on at least two different websites -- AND NOW IT'S GONE.

Did the Czechs buy them all?

I challenge anybody to find one.

Oh, please. Has anyone even tried this stuff, or is it just that knee-jerk reflex we get when the words "Czech" and "absinth(e)" occur together?

It's apparently a Sebor product, if that means anything. It might even be drinkable.

I thought GooGone's what's in the bottle...

Lemon-scented "GooGone". Works like a charm.

If brillo does not remove all the scum switch to SOS.

Buy the bottle, pour what's inside down the drain. Refill with cold water. It's that simple!
