Don't Dream ! If you go to Boverese, you will never find swiss Absinthe and especially if you are foreigner and you can't speak french ! You will find on the place some policeman and they will check, the last year the festival had some problems because somebody sell Absinthe !!!

You can pretty much forget about the $30 price, unless you go to Switzerland, and assuming you can find someone to admit they have it, much less sell it to you.

Betina is definitly a worthy dealer of the Swiss.
I've experienced it and it's wonderful. Not only
is she very reponsive she is very reliable.
I've ordered from other's and if your within the
states, she's the Real Deal! You Get What You Pay
For! Betina is absolutly the Empress of Elixirs
and the Angel of Anise!

is there something in Switzerland called the
Absinthe Festival in Neuchatel? Really? What are
the dates?

and Big Mango Don, is the price of 30 US for a
bottle of Bleue within la Suisse the current price
in your estimation (assuming of course you can
find a friendly Swiss farmer/distiller as a
source)? If 30 dollars is a true price, it does
make the prices here, even with the shipping costs
added, seem like a large gouge. what do all you
people who have tried the Bleue think... is the
markup fair? If so why would there be such a
difference in price between the two Bleues,
Bettina's and the new site?
