I was just trying to clean the Pernod Fils bottle I bought (empty) and the damn thing shattered. !*#%@!

So, I am now looking to buy (or trade my preban Edouard samples) for an empty preban bottle with a label. I'll consider anything. PLEASE!

If you have one, I would love to buy it and/or trade for it.

Alright, really! - what are you up to????

Well, to get this back on topic for my pathetic little desire:

Ummmm, looking for full size. I have a mini Edouard I paid way too much for - but its got a perfect seal and is full.
Jack Batemaster
Where you gettin' all this preban from, Franks?
AndrewT
So Frankie here's got loads of preban, and that Bourdain guy gets preban his first night trying absinthe. Am I the only one who's never tried preban before? frusty.gif
Jack Batemaster
Yes.
le Gimp
I wish.

The full mini-Edouard was sold on ebay last month. 300 Euros, I think.
I think Rosat was the seller.

In my 35 years on this earth I have had the following preban (not including Cuban cigars - it's a US thing wacko.gif ):

1 bottle Edouard Pernod (1910) - many smaples sold to the forum members here
1 mini bottle of Edouard bought off ebay for way too much money - still sealed
1 empty bottle of Pernod Fils with no label THAT I JUST BROKE YESTERDAY


And that's about it....

That would be the one. It was in such perfect shape I couldn't pass it up - my bank account shed some serious tears when I also bought a bunch of Jade.... OUCH!

Franks - you're only 35? I pictured you at 50 or older.
Kirk
There's no shortage of pre-ban,
but pre-ban bottles seem to be in short supply.

Why? Because I'm a silver haired fox? OK, I don't have silver hair yet - but I'm still a fox. OK, I'm not a fox but I will have all silver hair soon!

Absomphe
What's hair?

Oh yes, that stuff sprouting from ears.

Wish I could say I didn't know about that last comment absomphe, and all sorts of other places that are just wrong. harhar.gif

jmfranc... An empty bottle (with no label) wouldn't be hard to find.

I even think there's one on ebay now...

Buy it now at 12 Euro...

I saw it already - it's only 500ml and there's no label.

I'm looking for a full sized bottle with a label that's preban. Alandia has one from 1920 and doesn't have the deep punt. I look every day....

Where else can I find one? Oxy doesn't have one either.

There are a lot of bottles out there that are empty - I just can't find one. And I'll pay good money for it! SOMEONE has an extra that they would sell for a couple hundred. I just can't find one....

Yea, and blow my own bottles from 100 year old molds.

What I do is Jade Edouard and decant it several thousand times, thus, giving it the taste on 100 year old absinthe.

Lord Stanley
I saw a lot of empty bottles for sale on ebay.
The seller was the same guy who bought that mini-Edouard bottle.wink.gif


They might not have been pre-ban though.
Jack Batemaster
Franks - you have more preban to sell/trade for a label after only having a couple of samples left a few weeks ago?

I knew you're up to something - you're making your own!
Lord Stanley
Maybe he built that time machine after all.

Ummmm, I said I had a couple left to sell/trade. Didn't say anything about how many I kep myself. I think I have 3 or 4 total. Not sure. But, Batemaster, I hate to break it to you - I'm not making any, and have never made any preban absinthe. Sorry. I know it would support your many theories.


I sold almost my whole collection of empty bottles on ebay. From the two I started with (Sebor, I know, I'm sorry and have made amends with my taste buds) through the Pernod, Libertine, Un Emile, Clandestines, La Fee, and up to the only thing I buy at the moment - lots of Jade. In fact, I sold all my crap absinthe I had around and only have VdF, Jades, and a couple differnt Lamerciers at the moment. And some anise.....

I am willing to trade a couple samples for a preban BOTTLE with LABEL.

I am not confirming, or going to deny anything related to time travel. After all, it's easy.

So what's with the hard-on for empty bottles and labels? I'm sorry... that prolly sounded rude. What's with the fascination for empty, yet clean, vintage bottles? You like dust to have a smooth layer of vintage glass to collect on while it sits in your... uh... cabinet full of empty vintage bottles?... and vintage labels? Or do you just dip a bottle-brush in a hundred year old bottle so you can smell the wet dregs?

Oh, and if you make some conspiracy joke I get all of your next pre-ban batch.

Why would I even answer you? I think I shouldn't but: I want one for my collection. I would like a CLEAN one so I can use it to hold a bottle of Edouard . Is this OK? Or is it an obvious sign that I am up to something sinister. SCREW YOU. IF I want a preban bottle, I want a preban bottle....
Jack Batemaster
I'm not buying it, Franks. You're up to something...

Your siggy ain't helping, neither.

The safest lie is the truth.

I think he just wants an old bottle to put his Jade in (along with a little smaple flavoring) so he can impress his friends.

Yeah, I figured you weren't talking about Japanese boy bands.
