    Show Off Your Gear

    1934 Herbsaint booklet ( First year ), part of a group of liquor booklets I snagged cheap. Now all I need is the Legendre Absinthe booklet variation.

    WTB: Sample sized glass

    Look on eBay, you can find a lot of vintage short Mazagran glasses, usually advertised as absinthe glasses. I've had a set for a dozen years that has seen a lot of Louchefests™
  5. Some use small spray bottle to mist the inside of the glass, or you can learn to get better at pouring just enough to coat a glass with practice.

    Is it?

    Hopefully they like expensive recently made olive oil dispensers...

    REDUX Absinthe - Golden Moon Distillery

    I'd like to hear more about that creme de violet...
  11. Most likely it'll be a mid level absinthe, that will get a huge media push. P. R. probably could care less about absinthe forums, they'll make a big push though other cocktail sources, as this being the second coming. Just watch...
  12. P. R. sells an oil mix absinthe at 65-75 USD (Or more) for a decade.....hmmm what would they do?

    Just another "Tugger" Max wannabe ...

    Absinthe Fountain Maintenance

    Get a tube of Taylor Icecream Machine lube, to lube and seal the taps on the modern metal fountains. I did a little tune up work on the tap parts, since I'm used to working with items like that. You almost have to look at the indivual repro fountain. (I had a couple of the early metal repros, which had a little variation in the Q.C. when they were first released) I still use an ancient glass L'Amesinthe fountain from the early 2000s for one or two person use, I take very good care of all this absinthe junk.
