  1. Here is my lastest version of a map with all absinthe distilleries. Works with google earth in a browser. Its fun to me to map them all, but useful for anyone I think. Absinthe Distillers Map
  2. Hi there, I would like to annouce that there are 5 bottles of Helfrich Verte left in my stock, and no further supply available. Helfrich Blanche is already sold out. Greetings, J. http://www.1a-absinthe.com/advanced_search...ywords=helfrich
  3. Thanks! Its just a POD and a 20W transistor peavy amp. But the strat has a great sound (clapton custom 50s vintage strat), primarely when played with nothing more than a tube amp. But the bendings are hard with no trem bar. Here is another one, struggling with intonation: comfortably numb pink floyd I read it from the screen while playing, thx to guitar pro
  4. Hi there, here is one from me too. time pink floyd Have not played the song with a band but loved it very much in my old days
  5. That exactly matches my experiences. DHL does not work as it seems, but others services that to not use canadian post should be possible I think. I will have to figure out which one.
  6. Hi experts, would anyone like to be so kind to give me information about the legal status of absinthe in Canada right now? Some years ago, every order was stopped by customs. It seems it was also depending on the thujone (aargh I am afraid of mentioning the word here) contents and the interdiction of strong alcohol transportation by canadian post. Does anybody know how to make a save delivery to Canada? Does DHL work? Thanks a lot.
  7. I will try it next week, see if it is the one that the absinthe bible rates 97 of 100 points. absinthe bible
  8. That matches my price, it's the normal DHL fee.
  9. Here they are, the first bottles of the new Eichelberger 78 verte.
  10. I will have the first 6 bottles of their new 78 verte on Friday, guys from a german board who tried it a few days ago in Taxöldern are very excited about it. It seems it is really good.
  11. Hi there, for those interested in geographics, you can find a google earth fly-over of every distilleries hometown on my website, and searchable google maps. I think thats a real cool feature. It is a great experience to fly over the val-de-travers. Just click the google button below the word "Origin:" When you click into the video frame, you can go to the youtube page and have a high-resolution view as well (it does not work embedded in hires yet).
  12. Where the hell do you read me saying absinthe makes hallucinations? That is not what the website says. Quote me that sentence that definitely says: "Absinthe will make you hallucinate". That is your interpretation because you want to read this out of the text. And why don't you come along with the truth about your business intentions - it is all about washing absinthe clear so that you can start making big money - thats the truth. You are looking for the big deal, and I can put a spoke in your wheel when I will not confess absinthe is absolutely harmless.
  13. So what's the point? I should delete menue point 10 and all is good? Is that all? It is so ironic that "you" - you means the people writing here, I know my posts are sketchy but I can not spend much time here with talking - that you talk about nothing else but thujone. 3 pages of thujone talk, nothing else after all. Thats really disappointing. I do not love absinthe, thats true. I did not know that you have to be in love to a product you sell. I think there are other things in the world that need much more attention than absinthe. I do not spend all my time on absinthe talks, there is much more that interests me. So this is a deal breaker? The dealer has to be devoted to the product? Imagine, becoming an absinthe adept is quite expensive. I am not in that position that I can try a Jade here, a Segarra there. I guess my sense of taste is also not outstanding. So I have no right to sell absinthe? After all I experience here, it is a place of ideology and intolerance, and talk nothing but thujone.
  14. There is no search by thujone level, it is just divided into bitter spirits and non bitters. Please do not critizise me with untrue suppositions. And as long as people ask me about bitter or not, I will give them the info for many reasons, as I explained before several times. And absinthe drinking is about joy and fun and not a matter of science for the majority of pleople, so please allow them a bit of myth and legend. It is the same as having a new girlfriend. Do you want to see her all nude from the beginning with spotlight on weaker parts or would you like to use your imagination and discover things in twilight? Same with absinthe, people WANT some mystery about it, it is part of the whole thing. Not for you, but you are a small minority of experts, and not a target group for sellers. You have your fun in analyzing and criticizing, the majority has no scientific ambitions and prefer some entertainment factor. This is not to misunderstand as telling them some fairy tales. But you drive it much too far, it is a witch hunt against people who do not share your point.
  15. Intensity is the diffence between pure alcohol and alcohol with rich herbal flavour, I already explained that some posts earlier. Maybe richness would be a better word, maybe I will change it later. Drink some pure alcohol or hapsburg 90 or drachenburger and you will see there is no intensity, just alcohol. Rich developing flavour is intense. All your drug associations to that are completly wrong. I think you have a wrong idea of what a shop is. A shop sells something, and a shop is not educating or infantilizing the buyers by telling them what they have to do. I sell products that are sold under the name absinthe and paraphernala. Thats it. It's a shop and not the last judgement about absinthe. I do what very few shops do, I advise customers which producs are good and high quality and which ones are not recommendable. Very few sellers do so. Most of them recommend the ones with the highest profit. But it is not my part to tell anybody not to buy a special product. People have their own mind and when they want to buy a crap absinthe in full awareness, they have their reason. Maybe it should be a joke, a larking gift, or they are collectors (ever mentioned that? seems you don't tolerate collectors) or they just want to try. But they know what they buy, and they want it. I am no authority, teacher or guard to my customers, how should I? I offer products and say what it is, more clearly than others do. So if you think it is crap and the shop says its low quality, and you don't buy it, everything is perfect. Just ignore what does not interest you. I don't ask you to support me, I just wanted to let you know that I reduced the prices of the top absinthes that you love so much about 15% for a few days, so that you can have an advantage. I just wanted to give you a chance to buy the real good stuff for a very good rate (my shipping is also 20 EUR less than others). But I guess you won't buy at my shop even when it's all for 1 EUR, just because you found the word thujone somewhere. I am the evil, I am your natural enemy, you have to fight me , that is the holy mission. For me this is close to fanatism. Irrelevant. Take some toxine and you will get hallucinations, does not matter what it is categorized. Flu will make you hallucinate, too, and it's not a hallucinogen. You don't like the thujone text, so just ignore it. I see you can't find anything in it that supports your heavy vituperation of my person. It's all so minor and ignoring my facts (I posted a document that shows that absinthe is not allowed to be sold when it contains no thujone, but you ignore it, it does not match to your ideology). I think the discussion here is no discussion, just prejudgement and bashing. Few people have a differentiated point of view, or take a closer look. And no one sees any positive things. This is no good state of mind.
  16. I guess it all comes because absinthe is illegal over there and people have another view on it. In europe no one cares about thujone and even the police does not care much about pot smoking, so there is no such drug association to absinthe. Thujone was a new thing to check out and it's over. But I refuse to keep silent about it as long as questions swirl around. There is no hype and if you call a single menue point among 13 others, 10th in the line and with absolutely nothing in the text that can be proofed as untrue a "hype", I guess you are really hypersensible. You search for thujone and when you find anything you cry out loud, but what kind of view is that? It is not the common perception. You would even get upset when thujone is invisible in the meta content.
  17. So where is the thujone hype? I can't see one.
  18. Thujone bothers you all the time it seems... People don't care about it.. its not important at all..but you all only focus on thujone and see absolutely nothing positive. That makes me sad. It seems as long as the thujone search will bring any results you will call me a villain..thats really hard.
  19. No, It's just a herbal bitter, named thujon 33.
  20. Hi folks, the new shop is about to be finished quite soon and I am really happy with the result, it looks great and is fast and easy to use, with a powerful and fast search function. I really love it! Best shop I ever saw ! (Just kidding but it's true). To come to the point: Changing my domain name, the provider and the whole shop system at once really hit me hard, business broke down completely and my page rank is zero, so I start again from the beginning now. To come back in business, I set down some prices VERY much. I need to get some attention, but in general this will be for a short period, as other sellers will be quite unhappy and to be no price dumper, I will have to come back to the main line quite soon, and I think this is the right way to do. So if someone want's to save quite a lot of bucks, you have a chance NOW, I don't know for how long. Thanks !
  21. Greetings from the baltic! It's getting summer! Hiram, I added the Marteau and put a link to the society and your profile on it. If there are any suggestions concerning the rating of the Marteau, please let me know.
  22. I am not so good in english language, in german they use "intensity", maybe "richness" would be better, i can't evaluate this. I can't, it could cause problems.
  23. Intensity is the category most people wanted me to add. Raw spoken, it is the difference between pure alcoholic taste and rich herbal flavour. And please quote me any sentence that is not true before you call it nonsense. Thujone: There are people who want to make their own experience instead of believing what is preached by others. This is exactly what I endorse. I will not put a taboo on thujone, I will let the people try out. If you can not accept this, check your tolerance level please but don't try to forbid people to find out what thujone does to them, even when YOU are convinced it does nothing. They want to find out by themselves.
