They have since added a how to order page in English:

I filled out the order form in my best less-than-fluent-but-not-bad French. I received an automatic e-mail reply from them acknowledging my order and promising to respond soon. No response ever came, so I wrote to them ... and wrote to them again. Nothing. My credit card wasn't charged, at least.

Remember to tell them you visit the forum and they'll send you a gift.

Chev,

I have had very good experiences with Nice-Art. Timely, good packaging, very friendly. Did you try just filling out the order form? They would probably respond quicker to that than to email (it could be a language problem).

I recall reading somewhere that they used absinthe in the european version, and used southernwood for the version sold in the USA. whether or not is is true might be anyones guess.

When they unleashed it upon the US market, they claimed that it was made with southern, petite, wormwood, at least according to someone who reviewed it. This would have made it thujone free anyway,. Was that just more Absente BS?

Absente, the so-so pastis, never used petite (roman)wormwood (Artemisia Pontica).

"Absente : is an absinthe from"

Does this mean that they are no longer using petite wormwood?

Is Nice-Art reliable? Have you had luck ordering absinthe from Nice-Art in the past? I tried to order a fountain from them a while back and they never responded to my e-mails.

The very nice folks at Nice-Art inform me that they will soon carry some more absinthes. I am very happy about the François Guy!
