I'm now taking bets on how quickly this subject will disappear...

(And Kudos to LdF for proving that actions really do speak much louder than words.)

I'm not one of the fortunate few that have tasted samples of Jade, so in the meantime, I'm quite content to keep trying the new absinthes that Liqueurs de France keep squeezing out. You can't miss what you haven't had, I guess.

I was a loyal supporter of Ted and Don. I refused to buy into the skepticism that prevailed in this forum as to whether a Jade release was real or not. Well, I'm beginning to lose heart. Ted and Don may, in fact, be bullshit artists. How much longer are we supposed to wait for a product that has been promised for well over two year? Fuck em. They're liars.

Dear Customer

We are writing to inform you of various new developments from Liqueurs de
France. Firstly, we are planing to introduce our version of 'La Bleue' in the
very near future. This will be an absinthe blanche made in the Swiss style but
with the assurance of quality which comes from a professional distiller. La
Bleue is particularly sought by absinthe lovers, but unfortunately because of
the nature of the product quality or consistancy has hitherto not been

Secondly, we have introduced a range of liqueurs and eaux de vie from the
distillery of Les fils d'Emile Pernot. Each one is made with the same care as
the Un Emile absinthe and will appeal to the connoisseur. Of particular interest
will be the Vieux Pontarlier which is an anisette; this clearly demonstrates the
difference between oil based pastis and a hand crafted liqueur d'anis. For those
looking for an unusual digestif there is Un Sapin, a 55% pine flavoured liqueur,
the alcoholic base of which is used in our Un Emile Sapin.

Finally, it is with regret that we have to announce a price rise for Un Emile 68
and Un Emile 68 Sapin shipped to the US. This has been forced upon us by the
near 20% rise of the Euro against the US dollar since we began trading. In order
to soften the blow we will wait until 1st February before implementing the rise,
thus giving you plenty of time to stock up at the old prices!

best wishes

Liqueurs de France

Seems like choices have really improved in the last two years-I mean, light years worth of improvement in the commercial product available. Yea, I know, there's a long way to go, Jade, blah blah. But Remember when Deva was near the top of people's lists of commercially available? It wasn't really that long ago.

Um, where does the website say that the La Bleue is coming soon? I couldn't find that info!

The bad news is prices are going up because the Euro has risen 20%. Lets hope it isn't a 20% increase!
