I'm very pleased to try your Ridge LaBleue and Ridge Verte
when this becomes available. I am very strong predeliction for French and Swiss absinthe varieties and would like to try something unique from Montana.

Do you know Greg Mortenson?

Please offer something special for the Wormwood Society members. Thank you!


you can always claim the woodworms did it.

Something special? Why, yes! Yes, a very good idea, I think.

Another mile stone is just around the corner: Ground Breaking on the new distillery is only a couple of weeks away. We just need the tundra to thaw.

I agree with uglyB and T, it is about time for another trip, but after the tundra thaw out a bit.

I'd rather help than tour. *grin*

I need to see how this drink is made. I'm a curous biotch. *winking happy face with fork in the eye*
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.
