All kidding aside, I've never been interested in it enough to even read about it, much less seek it out. Drugs as a whole don't interest me as they once did, unless you count alcohol.

"Viagra?"

No thanks. Don't waste any of your supply on me. I don't need it.

"Artemis, you can welcome my influx any time, big boy ..."

The offer is only valid for newcomers. All I've got for you is hard dick and donuts. And I'm all out of donuts.

Zman is, as most always, correcto.
I heartily concur about the products from LdF. They are the only commercial ones I would, and indeed, do buy.
But, shit, nothing wrong w/trying a bunch. 'Cept from Betty if you don't wanna blow the big dough.

"Sorry to add to the massive influx of new people"

What's that all about?

Anyway, I've been asked by our hostess to welcome said influx, so it must be true.

WELCOME, ALL OF YOU!

Are they fleeing from a war somewhere else? I have to get out more ...

Welcome Michael,
Order with confidence from Spirits Corner, Liqueurs de France (www.absintheonline.com) and lafeeverte.de.
I have ordered from all of them with never any problems. Avoid Bettina. Reading her emails, you would think that jack-booted thugs will "crash your door while sipping your absinthe." Nothing could be farther from the truth. She preys on the un-initiated in the world of absinthe. Besides, why pay $200.00 for a bottle of lableu, when you can get an awesome product, delivered via private courier, to your door from LdF for $90.00?

Hey all –

Sorry to add to the massive influx of new people, but I’ve had some questions I’ve been mulling over for a couple of weeks and finally wanted to ask.

I’m trying to decide which vendor to order absinthe from. I've been choosing between Betina, spiritscorner and lefeeverte.de. Although I’d feel more comfortable ordering from within the states, Betina's prices seem really high, espcecially compared to ordering from Europe in bulk. How frequently do bottles get damaged in the mail when they’re shipped over from Europe? And has anyone had a shipment confiscated by customs? Your experiences and recommendations, positive or negative, would help me out a lot.

Also, to anyone who’s a regular customer of Betina’s, does she give much of a discount to repeat clients that might make the pricing more manageable?

I’m thinking I probably should be ordering Deva 50, François Guy, Oxygenee and perhaps at some point Segarra. I’ve had a friend’s La Bleue #1 and loved it, although it was a lot less complex tasting than I was expecting. Very crisp and nice.

Anyway, thank you guys for any advice you can give me.

Michael
