I only say this,as there isn't a webpage or email where it's available from. I just happen to know somebody who doesn't post here and is selling to friends, and friends of friends. :-). But i do know that soon it will be available in limited amounts to those that are interested.

The bottles will not have previously contained vinegar, but rather be purposely made for the absinthe. This absenta is not available in shops, as it's illegally made in private stills like all good suisse homebrews. It is the equivalent of suisse la bleue, but Spanish and has been made for local consumption since the 20's/30's as far as i understand. As to the source i can't give that away yet, as i wont be able to get any more if i do! But wait a few weeks and it will come your way!!

Wouldn't plastic vinegar bottles retain a residue from the vinegar in the plastic . . .

I'm quite excited as i've recently been informed that the Spanish Home brew absenta made in Valencia i used to enjoy so much is back on the market made in small amounts!! It has now been given the official contraband title of'Krystal' and is shipped in plastic vinigar bottles? Looking forward to my order arriving! Yum yum!!
Has anyone else ever had the opportunity to sample this stuff while in Spain?
