Excellent service.

They rapidly replaced a bottle of mine that went missing a few years ago at no cost to me.

They're friendly.

The courier they use is extremely fast.

They know a lot about absinthe and only sell higher quality commercial brands.

Nothing to say other than that I agree. Most of my orders have even arrived within 24hrs after placing the order. This is within Europe, but still…

Liqueurs de France has done more for absinthe than most.

They always respond to emails, and they have great customer service all around. Shipping is fast as hell and they don't hype the thujone. They are the best vendor with which I have experience.

Note: Comments about priceyness of LdF are from US posters (I think).

If you live in the UK or Europe, then LdF prices are as good as any when P&P, handling, etc. are added in. Their bottle prices may be slighly higher than other web advertisers, but their extra costs are lower. In other words, they don't try to deceive with hidden charges.

In other words, UK and Europe, quality products at as good a price as any.

Well, shipping within UK is free with LdF.

For the rest of Europe, shipping is actually a bit more expensive than for the US.

LdF is one of my two favourite vendors, Markus being the other one.

There are other great vendors, but I believe they were the first to go beyond mere Internet retailing and become actively involved in product design. They don't just sell what's available; they know what's missing in the absinthe world and they find artisans to provide it.

LDF: A+

Even in the US when you factor in shipping the apparent price difference compared to other companies virtually vanishes.

As a newcomer to the world of Absinthe, I was a bit aprehensive about ordering on-line but after doing a bit of reading here on the boards, I decided to give it a go.

My first order (Edouard 72) was with LdF: placed on Saturday 19 Nov. and the goods arrived Wednesday 23 Nov. I was very pleased with their service and anticipate ordering again (just as soon as the Nouvelle-Orléans becomes available!)
