  1. haha excellent photos..very different
  2. He's just misinformed and probably trying to act "cool" in front of the other guys. I don't think it does anything bad for Absinthe. It gets more people into it and then they find the truth themselves. If they don't find the truth then they are the ones missing out and looking like idiots in the end. I'm pretty sure 95% of people here and on other Absinthe forums first thought Absinthe was an hallucinogen or something similar when they first heard about it.
  3. Welcome to the forum Gaye! Excellent to see more Aussies on here, even if we don't post much... Ricki
  4. I get most of my herbs from http://www.herbsupplies.com.au
  5. Happy Birthday Hiram.. Have a good one!
  6. New Nine Inch Nails album 'The Slip' and a glass of Nouvelle-Orleans. Great combination.
  7. These are just copies of Port Sippers but made to look more like crack pipes. Bad idea.
  8. I have never noticed any bubbles in my Absinthes when i louche.
  9. Sounds like it would be an excellent party. I wish i lived in the states and could get an invite.
  10. For me, Bombay Saphire is my commercial gin of choice. I also like distilling my own gin which i think can't be beaten.
  11. Commerical Sources: Verte: Jade Verte Suisse (Best commercial i have tried so far,imo) Blanche: Kübler (Nice taste and perfect price range for me) [edited by admin to comply with board policy]
  12. What type of drill do you use to create the holes for the taps? The fountain looks magnificent by the way. Good work.
  13. In Australia they sell Stromu Absinth(aka Green Fairy Absinth) + an Energy Drink premixed in cans already called "Fairy Bomb". It tastes like cheap shitty licorice mixed with the cheapest type of energy drink you can buy.
  14. Northern Suburbs area of Perth. Very nice place to live, especially when coming here from a country like England.
  15. Ok, I sent an e-mail to a few people at Pernod-Ricard's Pernod division to see if they had any plans to recreate the original Pernod Fils absinthe and this is the response I received: Now, either they don't really know what they are talking about, or they are just trying to give me misinfo. Isn't REAL distilled absinthe now created and distilled in both France and Switzerland right now that complies with the laws and legislations? I think they could be really gain some good credibility by recreating the old formula. Other people, such as T.A.Breux are cashing in on Pernod Fils name and original formula. I can't see why they wouldn't want to join in. Any comments? P.S. If you want to e-mail the people at Pernod with any facts on legislation, old Pernod Fils facts, or anything that could lend credibility to them once again trying to create Pernod Fils then the e-mail addresses are: alexandra.cleon@pernod.com sylvie.machenaud@pernod.com sarah.valence@pernod.com
  16. Kübler is a nice absinthe. I don't see anything wrong with the promotion that they are doing. Don't forget, this is marketing towards the US market. Sex sells, etc, etc.
  17. Welcome to these forums. It is a great place for anyone new or old to Absinthe. Enjoy the adventure!
  18. That sounds awesome. Thanks for explaining it. Congrats again. You have made everyone at WS proud! I will be ordering a bottle asap.
  19. Sorry for posting this again Hiram but i guess you missed it on the first page of the post.
  20. Tonight i am drinking Canadian Club 'Classic' whisky(aged 12 years) with dry ginger ale. I think i might need some absinthe soon.
  21. Looks like a nice absinthe to add to my growing collection. Hiram, how involved were you with the process? Did you just supply the recipe or were you involved with the distilling and tasting of samples,etc, etc? Congrats anyway!
  22. I don't mind the Pernod 68 that much. I buy it whenever i don't have enough money to buy some premium absinthe and it satisfies my absinthe needs until I can get my hands on the premiums again.
