A useful link, showing most currently approved labels:
http://www.bevlaw.com/absinthe.htm

Has anyone tried Leopold Absinthe from the (soon to be moving to Denver) Leopold distillery in Ann Arbor, Michigan? I've had some initial reports which, to say the least, are not encouraging.

I was under the impression that Tempus Fugit had acquired approvals for View Pontarlier, Duplais Verte, and Mansinthe, but I do not see them in the listing. I am feeling a little let down.

Is is safe to say that the few that are already showing approvals in the year 2008, will most likely be around the end of the year before we see them hit the market? I am guessing 6 to 9 months is a standard time frame.

I'm surprised they let La Fee keep the eye on the label.

Wilson, the site requests any additional info on others pending. I'm guessing these are just the ones they are aware of or represent.

Also, the Grand Absente list dye No.s and the Mythe states artificial flavors added. Not that either of these were shoe-ins.

Anyways.

So did La Fee need to change their recipe for the U.S. Market?

Hey stranger! I was under the impression that it never had any t-bones to begin with. Do they even use wormwood, wormwood oil or anything derived from said plant? Libertine has a COLA too apparently.

None of the legal regulations inhibit or restrict the import (or manufacture and sale) of low quality products.

And when in comes to absinthe in the US, it's a distilled spirits specialty, which means the maker can do whatever they want and put "absinthe" on the label.

It's appalling the degree to which Americans like crap, actually. I'll give it another year or two and there will be a jug of Hubba Bubba Absinthe Schnapps in most trailers in this country, complete with a photo of a NASCAR driver on the label.

Mencken summed it up beautifully:

Nobody ever went broke underestimating the taste of the American public.
