  1. I haven't seen Blues Cat in stock anywhere for a while now...
  2. I bought a bottle of Jade Eddy a month ago. Cork snapped right off despite my attempts to be very careful. Decanted it into an old Walton Waters bottle while getting surprisingly little to cork bits floating around. I just crushed up the bits of remaining cork in the Jade bottle with a butter knife and rinsed it out. The corks are quite brittle.
  3. I think they are referring to a copper toxicity but copper salts won't distill off anyway and I've never heard of copper toxicity from distillation. I'm going with Joe, marketing bullshit. Sounds like they couldn't get an alembic so they made up an excuse.
  4. Never had a Corpse Reviver, but I do have Lillet on me. I'm going to go pick up some Cointreau tomorrow now unless you have a better recipe than the one listed on the WWS site? http://www.wormwoodsociety.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=277:corpse-reviver-no-2&catid=25:absinthe-cocktails&Itemid=218
  5. Deep fried? I did not know that was a thing. I did deep fry twinkies, snickers, chicken, and corndogs this weekend though. Dat cholesterol.
  6. I've been drinking absinthe for about two years, and you have nicer and more swag that I do!
  7. I had two Marteaus last night. When I first had Marteau, I really liked it. After tonight, I think I'm falling in love. It just keeps getting better and better. I have a feeling that storing a fresh bottle in my closet for a decade or so as I am trying to do is going to get very hard soon...
  8. A Clandestino with the only blanche I currently have in stock - La Maison Fontaine: http://i.imgur.com/wUkJO.jpg I unfortunately forgot to buy cucumbers. The drink is pretty good, but I don't think Maison works as well as Clandestine would.
  9. Chinatown Coffee carries a couple bottles of absinthe. Their most notable being Clandestine. http://chinatowncoffee.com/bar/ They have a fountain behind the counter. Pretty awesome.
  10. The new forum auto embeds Youtube links. Just post and submit.
