New absinthe brand

Sepulchritude Forum: The Absinthe Forum Thru December 2001: New absinthe brand

Never did understand the fascination with La Fee. I can get the stuff like tap water, but personally i don't think it even comes close to Deva. Which by the way is not my favourite anymore anyway. NS, La Bleue and Segarra have to be the best three contemporary absinthe's i've drunk to date.

Ruud -

If you are looking for real antique absinthe glasses, try these sites. Both are run by very nice & knowledgeable people who are also posters on this Forum:

If you are looking for newer reproductions, just go to any of your local housewares or kitchenwares stores (I'm not sure what those would be in the Netherlands). Any heavier glass with a footed base works fine and looks fancy (just be sure the top is not too wide, or your absinthe spoons will not fit correctly).

If you want to order glasses on the internet, I like the Pottery Barn "Claro" Water Goblet (shown here -, a set of 6 is $64 US, but it appears they may not ship outside the U.S, so you'd have to have somebody send them to you.) However, anything in that style nicely mirrors the authentic belle-epoch era glasses, and you could probably find something like that near you.

Good luck,
- Morrigan

La Fee: f250,- via Eurostar through the Chunnel. Tube to Oxford Circus or Charing Cross, I forget which. Go to Tom's Liquors on Old Compton Street. 35 pounds for La Fee.

The Idler, which co-sponsors the La Fee Absinthe bus, ought to hide cases of it in London like Canadian Club did with their whiskey 25 years ago. I always wondered if anyone ever found them.

Neto and Hapsburg are not much of an improvement over Tabu and Hills etc.

Serpis and MM are the 'best' of what they list.

If the man wants real absinthe, let him buy some La Bleue, or La Fee, and get himself (dare I say) on the BEL mailing list for info on Jade products.

Those are all about the equivalent of Czech.....poor quality items.

If you want to try the real thing without too much trouble, there are a couple of shops in Amsterdam that sell it. One, on the Prinsengracht at Nieuwe Leliestraat (tram 13 or 17 to the Westermarkt), sells Neto Costa, a Portuguese brand, for f 58,-. Another shop, on the Osdorpplein (tram #1), sells Habsburg and some other brand, according to a friend. These are real, but the consensus of the site is that they're not real great.

These folks have a grand sense of humor.

They are selling Swills, Absente, MM, Serpis and Tabu.

Ruud, Absente is neither new nor absinthe, it is a garbage pastis being misrepresented as absinthe.

Swills is swill.

This seller seems to be promoting the worst of the litter.

By Tabreaux on Tuesday, July 31, 2001 - 12:18 pm: Edit

Absente is not absinthe. It contains no absinthium. It is legally sold in the U.S., where absinthe is completely illegal. That distributor doesn't know anything about absinthe.

see the pastis and faux absinthe section of the guide, Ruud =)

Absinthe? Not even close.

By Ruud on Tuesday, July 31, 2001 - 11:55 am: Edit

0,7 Lit. 55% vol. Alk.

ABSENTE versucht an die vormalig französische Absinthtradition anzuschließen.
Anis ist im Geschmack dominant. Entsprechend setzt eine Trübung beim klassischen Trinkritual ein.
ABSENTE ist im Aroma sehr lieblich und gleicht insgesamt sehr PERNOD.
ABSENTE enthält Thujon.
