    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.

    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?

    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.

    It's not the first... This will be the second Red absinthe made in New Orleans, since there was one made many years ago in NOLA.
