Did anyone respond? I sent Federico an email telling him that owning a still in this country was a crime, and it would probably be best not to sell them here. I also told him that selling ingedients would ok.

Maybe I should have added that artemisia should be labeled, not for human consumption.

Nah, you can get it at the health food store.

Gets rid of tape worms, ya know.

Also an abortifacient, so if yer pregnant or nursing, don't use it.

It may be ok...so long as it is accompanied by a legal phytosanitary certificate.

It's never as easy as it seems is it?

Thank you very much for your information.

Owing a pot still for spirits distillation is also illegal in Spain, but the
stills we are thinking of are very small: 5, 10, 15 liters, so that they are
sold as decorative items. You can find them in some stores. What you cannot
find are bigger stills. It is similar to glass stills (if they are called
like this, the typical glass things in a chemistry laboratory), with which
you also can distill a spirit. This is the situation here in Spain.

I thank you for your comments on the herbs, we will include them a little
further on.

Nothing spooky and mysterious. A phytosanitary certificate is required in the import/export of most plant matter - which plant matter varies from country to country. They just want to make sure that you're not importing something that could be the next kudzu and doesn't contain any nasties that will kill us all or adversely effect our argriculture: "Under the International Plant Protection Convention, it has been agreed that all signatory countries will carry out the required inspection and treatment to ensure that quarantine and other noxious pests are not disseminated along with plants and plant products exported from their respective countries. "

It's obvious that spices and herbs are a huge import/export commodity and it's no big deal so long as the necessary inspections have been made. Read all about it.

Probably easier to buy them in the States, anyway.

Cheaper, too!

I thought some of the ingredients like Artemisia pontica weren't easily availables in the US, since Artemisia plants are generally banned for use in foods.

I checked the website and it looks like
