Spirits Corner gets the Wild Bill Turkey stamp of approval ( so widely coveted )

They have a few brands you can't get anywhere else, and their service is top-notch.

They have reliable service, although they don't carry a single brand I'd pay money for.

They have always provided good value and outstanding service. Unfortunately, most recent additions to their product line have not been premium absinthes.

This is the place to get your Serpis and Segarra Absenta. They also were the first reliable vendor of Absinthe on the net.

I placed an order with Fine Spirits Corner. I went with the regular shipping. They warn that it might take 7-9 weeks. I remember seeing somewhere that it doesn't really take that long...anyone experience shorter than expected shipping time? I live in Florida.

I'll answer my own question. Instead of the 9 weeks they said it tould take (because i used the cheap shipping), it took 7 days. Curious thing is that the Deva bottle was opened and had spilled a little, maybe a ounce or so, nothing major. Not sure if bottle came open during shipment, though it seems like a defective cap that - once the metal-ring seal that keeps it on the bottle was broken, the cap does not screw on properly.

Also, the spanish absinthes have national paper seal that goes up and over the bottle caps. All but one was missing, but you could tell that they were there at one time due to the sticky residue. I honestly cannot tell if these things had been opened before me.

I ordered six various bottles of some cheaper spanish absinthes. Only four showed up. That stands to reason, looks like the way they pack, they only do four or less at a time, so in the near future i expect the other two to show.
I emailed them as to what happend, but i am waiting for a response. They seem to be good a good company, other inquiries have been answered quickly . With a long trip to america from overseas using economy shipping, perfection may be a little too much to expect. I am satisfied for now and would reccomned them in the future for beginners for the selection alone, but use airmail option or courrier.
btw, I live in florida

I'm sure most of you got the email, but for anybody who didn't, there's a new reason to love Christina.

I do like Christina, but I don't care for the dishwater taste that Duplais has.

Makes me wonder what batch of the Duplais you got. Also makes me wonder if it was the Duplais at all...
