Got a message from Unique Imports this morning. I don't think Pere François is anyone's favourite, but I though the price point was worth a mention. It is clearly less expensive than previously overseas:

Thoughts?

That same website is also selling Kübler for $39.99 for 1Litre, which is even cheaper than the Pere François 750ml for $38.99. Not to mention how much better the Kübler is anyhow.

Please don't misunderstand; just because I'm mentioning this does not mean I'm endorsing it as the new best buy...

Absinthe Ben - I did not at all mean to infer that you were endorsing Pere François. I just figured I would let everyone know that they could get Kübler for under $40 at the website you mentioned.

Their shipping says they only ship spirits to CA, so I'm not getting too excited.
