un émile 68° was created as an exclusive product for liqueurs de france ltd. its base is the same as the 45°, but the final product is different, and not just in alcohol percentage.
the sapin 68° was created as an exclusive product for LDF. due to demand placed on the distillery for the 68°, a 45° version of the sapin was kindly and uniquely made (to the reluctant acceptance of LDF), but the original buyer did not honor her agreement to buy all that was ordered, and the resulting excess was then sold to a german distributor, who has also put it online. the absinthe blanche 68° was made as an exclusive product, also developed by LDF. it, the original un émile 68° and the sapin 68° are presently sold only on-line by LDF (unless bought on-line at retail and then resold), and the un émile 68° is available in selected shops in the UK, and projects for other countries where it is legal are in the works. No one in the usa or elsewhere resells un émile 68° at less than the LDF online price including shipping, unless they have a diabolical plan.

>so why is the 45% not available at absintheonline?

because it is not a product of LDF, and can be purchased by anyone from the distillery.
oh, and no matter what anyone says, the 45° is good, but the 68° is better. better how? more aromatic, fuller mouth-feel, slower, more opalescent louche, more intensity of flavors, and longer finish.

cool ok thanks all, so the 45% is made by the some people as the 65%, its just that they sell 45% to resellers, and if you want anything else you have to buy it at absintheonline, so why is the 45% not available at absintheonline sorry to be a pain in the but, this something I have'nt understood thought I would ask you all thanks again

Now they need a 45% blanche, but a 55% would be even better...

While the Emile 45% is good, it is very thin tasting in comparison to the 68%... could be the extra water

I prefer the 68%, but that's just me.

I also see that Alandia.de carries a 45% version of Sapin. I can only assume that it too is thin, and not up to par with the 68%.

Price for the 68% is approx 1.8X that of the 45% at lefeeverte.de You decide.

The glass on the right contains LDF Emile68% the glass on the left emile 45%.

Emile 68, Sapin 68, & la Blanche 68 are special commission formulas made by Pernot for Liqueurs de France at absintheonline.com and are only sold and distributed by LDF. The 45% versions are by made by Pernot, but w/ lower alcohol level and possible different formulations ... (LDF guys, feel free to step in)
