For those of you local to the Seattle area, there will be a feature on KING-TV news tonight. The news will be regarding the opening of our distillery in the Seattle area and also focusing on our upcoming absinthe production. I think it will be broadcast in the 5PM, 6PM and 11PM news times, it also may be seen from time-to-time on NWCN and KONG TV. For those of you interested and not local, they also said it might be on their web link for a couple of days. Hopefully I don't look and sound like to much of a nerd.
Tibro
Hopefully your product fulfills the promise promised it.

Do not worry. We are all a bunch of nerds over here.

Wild Bill Turkey
The nerd herd.

Who cares about that black licorice tasting crap? When's the gin come out?
Zman
Hopefully this September.

Yoda you're not, Tibro.

I can't keep all the screen names straight. So you're the one opening Pacific? Got it.

A hearty congratulations to you!

If there's anything that I can do for you…..drop me a line.

Happy Distilling, and best wishes on your success.

Thanks Todd, don't be surprised if I really do contact you.
Also:
Online video now:

but probably only for a day or two. Hopefully somebody can capture it.
Absomphe
Pacifique by Christmas, maybe? w00t2.gif

Steve
Very nice! But Christmas is so far away…

Watching the video, I just kept thinking, "I sold him that fountain!".
Absinthesizer
Those are some honking big doses in the video!

Best of luck. I can't wait to try it. absintheglass-glow2.gif

You didn't, not at all.

What a nice big dose you've louched!
Conte d'Ugenta
The very best wishes Zman, and yeah, a healty dose you served!
hartsmar
Excellent. So, there'll be a huge release party in december?
dakini_painter
Good luck! Absomphe has been teaching you how to fill a glass, hasn't he?

I only seem to be able to download their advert, sorry!
Shabba53
Works well for me. Try again. There's a commercial that plays first, then the feature comes on.
The Standard Deviant
Yes, I could watch it in a web browser, but Zman asked if someone could capture it.
hartsmar
There's an excellent program that can do that.

I tried it and it works perfectly (v.3 beta), however - the trial version only captures 75% of the stream - since it's trial... Full version ought to do it. That's $39,95

I think it was already done, but I'll do it as well. I'll try to get it posted on YouTube today.
Shabba53
Here you go:

I use Replay Screencast. I have the media catcher too, but it doesn't work for all of the replays I need to capture. Both are great tools.
The Standard Deviant
<ignore if you aren't a nerd>I was using some equivalent freeware mac software, and has extracted that Hartsmar posted using the Safari equivalent of Firebug, but obviously something wasn't quite right. Anyway, I'm glad you two managed.</ignore>

Now I know what I want for Christmas.
Jaded Prole
Well done!

And thanks for putting it on YouTube so I don't have to download another flash player.



A rare reason to look forward to Christmas.

Look forward to the contact. Don't hesitate.

BTW, your still is beautiful. Hope you enjoy working the hell out of it.

Very good.

I am looking forward to your success.

Steve
Congratulations! Wait… are you sure it wasn't just another prank call from Grim?
Zman
Absolutely positive.
eric
How does it feel?
Rimbaud
So, does that mean the distillery is officially open for business?

Congrats Mr Z! Keep on truckin' on! abs-cheers.gif
Donnie Darko
Congrats. This is great news for me (by me I mean my mouth and nose and not my liver and kidneys).

Good things come from those named Z. Carlos Zambrano (aka Big Z) went 8 shutout innings for my Cubbies against the Brewers last night and even drove in a run (he has the highest AVG of any pitcher in baseball), and now I find out Zman's hooch is fully legal. Zowie. Stupendouz. Zipededoodah.
hartsmar
Wonderful!




I didn't mean your liver, DD.

I grew up about an hour due east of Chicago. Used to watch every game on WGN when I was just a kid.

This is the finest team I have ever seen the Cubs field.

Go Cubs!

Doctor Love

Did you hear about Teixiera, Donnie? Is the year for my halos! If you're lucky maybe it will be the Cubbies they slaughter in the WS.

Oh Snap!

Absomphe
Congrats, Marc!

I hear you're working on an absinthiana display, and I have a couple of devilish items that I'd be happy to donate. evill.gif

Ha! All this time talking to you and I never knew you were a Cubs fan. I went to games at Wrigley all the time as a kid because I'd spend the summer with my grandparents who lived about 45 min from Chicago in Crown Point, Indiana. I have a glove somewhere that was signed by Maddux in his rookie year, Rick Sutcliffe and Ryne Sandberg. The team they have this year is certainly the best I've seen since I've been alive. Piniella is a badass.

Almost as much of a badass as Zman is for this Absinthe endeavor.
Grim
Hey, Z. I called a lil' while ago. Figured you're off celebrating anyway.

CONGRATULATIONS!
Marc
That's very good news Marc, Con-gra-tu-la-tions!

Now start sending the fuckin' samples to the Mafia!

There is no Mafia.

It's a myth.
