Yup, unsurprisingly, I know it well. I've assisted the company behind it in a small way with technical input and some of the pre-launch PR. Its a well packaged, nice commercial oil mix, targeted at the bar/club market, without any pretensions to Belle Epoque authenticity. Its closest in taste to Sebor, but with a brighter colour and a hint of Lasala lemonyness. It wholesale price here is around $7/bottle. I think, taken on its own terms, its an honest product, aimed primarily at the local SA market (although I understand they are also working on export sales).

Speaking of oil mixes, has anyone tried the new South African absinthe called, "Doubs?"
A perusal of their website is nice, but they have the wrong picture of what "anise" is under their "11 mountain herbs" section.

For those who don't get the emails from spiritscorner.com:

4. New absinthe: We are presenting the new Absinthe Ferri. Ferri is a traditional distillery from Valencia, who used to distill absinthe for generations, but discontinued in the 80s. Now they have launched again their absinthe, made according to their traditional way. This absinthe has the tipycal Spanish balance between wormwood and anis (which means that the anis is there to balance out the high bitterness of the wormwood). The taste is less anis dominating than others, and you may find notes of other herbs used in the recipe. A very pleasant absinthe in our taste.


We hope you will find our new products interesting.
