Manitoba liquor and lotteries Decides what Alcohol. is sold in the province

Anyway if I want to purchase any form of alcohol . I have to either go to Manitoba liquor and lotteries Liquor store Or a Business that has been given a liquor license by Manitoba liquor and lotteries . This means that my alcohol choice is limited.To what the Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries corporation let's be legally sold In the province.
Meaning that I have a choice at this time of Olney 4 absinthe's . To choose from without the internet . Two of which I would not consider absinthe but I post them here just to show what my choices would be without the internet The absinthe choices at the present time for me without the internet are


1 St. George Absinthe Verte


2 Baba Yaga Absinthe



3 Green Tree Absinthe

4 Absente Absinthe Refined

a

I have to pay a tax called the GST or goods and services tax this is an added 5 % to the price of the product this goes to the Canadian government.

Strange punctuation you have there, darkhorse.
Too bad none of those listed are absinthe.
We have a state run liquor monopoly also here in Virginia, it feels like I am
buying liquor from the department of motor vehicles, except
the staff is less helpful. Therefore I was shocked and awed when
I walked in and saw a bottle of the finest absinthe that can be bought
anywhere in the world sitting on the shelf. Made me feel good.
