you're right: Germany = Anis-hater-Land... Well not everybody, but quite a number don't like it. Maybe they once had too much Pernod - which is not a nice hangover at all! Maybe they are simply too stupid... lot's of braindeads around.
I got this sample bottle of Serpis dry here - brrrrr - believe me: you don't want to try it! I'd rather perfer blood if it has to be red!

La Fee is worth trying, but I'd recommend getting the gift pack with the mini bottle first. I know some people like it, but Un Emile and F. Guy are both much better - unsweetened and without the artificial color.
If these were like the cheap macerated absinthes, I'd say save your money, but they're entirely different. I find that Emile 68 gets particularly interesting somewhere between the second and third glasses - though I wouldn't want to do that every day, especially if I was alone. It was really scary.
Hey Markus - what's up with this "Serpis Dry"? Do lots of Germans hate anise? I've seen a few sites now advertising various Czech and Spanish brands as "dry" or even "anise-free"... it just seems strange to me.

Wonderful. Thank you! Happy 4th to all.

I've been here for ages and I hadn't made the connection either - mostly because I wasn't paying attention. I got sick of all the absinthes that were available to me (at non-extortionist prices) a while back and decided to give it a rest until the Jade products came out. Lately, a lot of new options have become available, and I'm beginning to suspect that the meteor that extinguishes all mammalian life from the planet will arrive sooner than Jade. I think I'll be trying E68, LaFee, and F.Guy sometime soon.

At the risk of sounding naive, I did not know that the imfamous "markus" was the La Fee Verte site. In the little that I've read in the archives, I've heard "markus" mentioned, but when viewing your Vendors list, I did not see this particular name. Who/What is Markus? Even on the La Fee site I still don't see the name?
Please forgive me, for I am virgin.
