  1. I live in Quebec and have successfully ordered a few times from Absinthes.com. They have a delivery guarantee. It's been a few years since my last order but I wouldn't hesitate to order from them again. I've also done many orders with Spirits Corner. Again, it's been quite a few years though. One shipment did get lost or picked up by customs and Spirits Corner replaced it free of charge. Quebec has a very decent selection of absinthe right now that I haven't needed to order from overseas in awhile.
  2. Just order from absinthes.com when you get there. They ship to Canada and they offer guaranteed delivery, so if anything does happen to the shipment they'll send it again.
  3. I still really enjoy Serpis 65, especially in the summer. Corsair is good too.
  4. Skyrim. In level 3 of Thief, there are absinthe fountains in the brothel. I remember seeing a bottle of absinthe somewhere else in the game but I can't remember where.
  5. This sounds good! Rye base. It's not available on their website though.
  6. That's what I thought. Just thought it was strange they mentioned white cocktails. I'll probably pick up a couple of those kits.
  7. This is off-topic but that kit is very appealing. Perhaps you could help fill me in about what they mean by " for maturing your favorite white cocktail"???
  8. Ungava is great for drinks with citrus and martinis. Piger is the best for G & T's.
  9. Good to know. I also didn't know the plants had to be ground up so fine. Maybe they only did the hand grinding once for the video... Luscious Oily Lesbians! Edit: It's been awhile since I've been on here. I forgot about the Luscious Oily Lesbians! thing.
  10. I've only had an AbsintheExplore sample of Roquette. I liked what I tasted. I understand why a producer wants their product to appeal to modern palates but from a historical perspective I would prefer Roquette 1797 to be as close as possible to the original 1797 recipe. Even if it's just for the novelty of showing someone what absinthe may have been like around 1800. They could do one historically correct version and another 'more of a better absinthe version' that is based on the original recipe. I know it's easy for me to want this because it's not my $$ on the line. It would be interesing though.
  11. Here's a video of the absinthe production from the distillery: I haven't tried this yet but based on the video and the herbs going in it looks good. No fennel though. Is it normal to color the absinthe by creating a maceration of herbs with alcohol and then adding that to the distilled absinthe? I thought it was normally done by macerating the coloring herbs in the distillate itself.
  12. Dillon's offers an interesting new make rye. It's cool to taste what 100% rye tastes like off the still (although it is watered to 40%). Can't wait to try their absinthe. There might be another absinthe coming out of Quebec in the future. The guys who make this: http://www.pigerhenricus.com/en/, are planning to make an absinthe as well.
  13. This is a very late reply but there is a thread about the Sarah B. absinthe bar. Basically they did a great job with the decorations but they failed to do the research and educate their themselves and their staff. Now its basically a beer bar.
  14. I see you guys in Ontario have Vieux Pontarlier now. We had it, now its gone. I take it it's not gimmicky enough for the SAQ because that's what they go for. The only new Canadian whisk on their shelf in the last year is this: http://www.coyoteuglywhisky.com/. I still bought it though and its actually pretty good. Made by Highwood. Now i'm off topic. Point is absinthe situation has not gotten much better in the last couple years. And I don't think it's going to unless more people start making it here.
  15. Reached into the back of my closet for a glass of Deva 70. I'm enjoying it but not as good as Deva 50. There's always a place on my shelf for a decent absenta
