  1. Oh gosh, thank you all!! I only saw this today
  2. Wow, thank you everyone for this great and positive feedback, I'm glad to hear that it seems we're doing a lot right. It's thrilling to see that there are some members here that would like to see us on the preferred vendors list! Though we of course wouldn't mind to already be listed, we haven't forgotten about our agreement with the board of the WS, and we're actually selling off most of our stock of faux-absinthe and will decrease its number to the minimum. Which reminds me - if anybody's interested, there's currently 15% off on a selection of Czech (cr)absinthes (I'm not daring to post the link to them on here) However, these are all examples of products we're not going to restock any more, after they have sold out. As I told Brian a while ago, we're currently developing a new site which takes a lot of time and resources. Eventually, this new shop will carry just fine and high quality spirits - where most of these 'absinthes' won't find their place. Unfortunately it's like Scott said however, especially in Europe there's a market for these products, but we hope that with our efforts we can turn things around, and educate our customers about real absinthe. We never actively promote crapsinthe, and we don't support their image. But it's also a part of why we're able to offer free shipping to the US - with a broad selection of products we achieve larger sales and it doesn't hurt as much to loose a little on shipping. Eventually, we won't need them any more to do so, but right now, we do. Thanks again for your support
  3. I just saw this link today, an interesting attempt to make absinthe more commercial (I mean, there is champagne with gold flakes in it, as well as vodka - why not?) but this is definitely nothing for me! I tried this sparkling wine with gold flakes in it once, and all I could think of was how worried I was about what it would to to my body. We got a sample of this absinthe in our office, I haven't tried it, but I've been told it's not that great. Just passing on what I was told. It'd be indeed interesting to see what happens to the gold flakes when it louches.
  4. Hello and welcome! Sunny Glasgow, hehe. Unfortunately I've never been there, but I also had the pleasure of working with a Scottish girl in Birmingham, it took me a looooong time to get used to her accent. I'm curious what yours must be like now. Certainly some weird mixture?
  5. Wow, new forum looks weird! Will sure take some time to get used to it - at least you can like someone's responses now. I thought I'd let you know that I had a look at the poll and the responses so far, and that I'm a big fan of: - la fée émeraude for the Verte - la fidéle for the blanche Too bad it's not really up to me... ;-) Thanks for all your help guys, if some of you still want to take the poll, let me just tell you that a lot of people have suggested something in relation to "emeraude" - minimum chances on winning the free bottles, if you go towards that direction as well.
  6. Hope you've submitted this via the poll - I sense some potential there
  7. Painful indeed! We obviously don't like it, when people have to wait ages for their order - we're working on a faster and better solution for USA shipments!
  8. Pleased to hear that it arrived in the end, Justin! Enjoy your Roquette!
  9. Hi Aaron, it came through, not to worry. And thanks so much for taking part! You'll all get an email in a couple of weeks. The contest ends on the 3rd of September, and from then on we'll need a couple of days do make a decision. I think that could work!
  10. Hi Bill, glad you fancy helping! And, you're right! There is some more information on the absinthes on the front page of the poll (see link) that should help you get a bit of an idea.
  11. Hi Everyone, A dream has finally come true – we've made their own absinthes. Well, we haven't made them ourselves obviously, but we managed to get in touch with two renowned distilleries, and after discussing the recipes, they agreed to distill the absinthes for us. We will launch both a Blanche and a Verte. Now, we're looking for a good, suitable name for each of these absinthes. This is why we've decided that we'd like to ask the wormwood society for your help - we believe that we can find great names for these absinthes together. Please participate, we would really appreciate your support. To say thank you, everyone taking part in the poll will receive a free gift and a discount with their next order with us. And the person who submitted at least one of the names we will choose in the end, will get a complimentary bottle of each of our new absinthes! So, there is definitely something in this for you! If you wish to take the poll, please click here. Thanks for your help, Miriam
  12. Comments on packaging: noted, cheers! There is a lot of stuff we can improve, thanks however for the positive feedback, too!
  13. Hehe. In case you don't have a still sitting in your cellar you mean?
