I spoke with René for a long while a few weeks ago. It's mostly a personal matter, but yes, La Maison d'Absinthe and the museum are closed.

 

The good news is that René anticipates a whole new venture by the first of the year, so the paraphernalia drought should be brief.

I think they might be selling stuff on eBay. Someone is selling absinthe accessories and including the wrapped sugar cubes that MdA always had, look just like 'em

I know that much of what's being sold on eBay from vendors in the Seattle area is actually liquidated stock from a shop or wholesaler which was closed down sometime last year and auctioned off. I couldn't say if any of the current eBayers are/were affiliated with that shop, though.

They were the only domestic source for stainless steel fountains and they went down before I could order one. :(

True, but the company that shipped and stocked these for them was Saxon, good folks. They may still have these in stock. It's worth a try! I'd call them to ask. You'll see Christmas carousels and go "huh?" but trust me, they have fountains, however I'm not sure of the SS ones, they DID however ship mine to me last year

when I ordered from Maison D'Absinthe.

No, Saxon was a customer of Bonnecaze & Cie., which was the wholesale arm of La Maison d'Absinthe.

Does anyone here know the status of this absinthe accessories shop?

 

Is it reopened in New Orleans?

Which is where?

 

I'm right across the river but I stay the hell out of New Orleans for the most part.

Not sure about the absinthe museum though, but I'm sure I read it somewhere. I plan to find out more when I visit in 4 months.

Okay thanks.

 

Maybe we'll go into town and recon the thing.

 

Probably I'll have to refer him to the Internets.

Official Opening:

 

La Galerie d’Absinthe Opening Saturday, March 26 from 4 to 6 pm

 

Raymond and B.J. Bordelon have completed the installation of their extensive collection of Absinthe artifacts and ephemera in Southern Food and Beverage Museum. With an extensive display of absinthe through the years, absinthe spoons, absinthe cocktail recipes, and absinthe fountains, this museum will explore and answer all of your absinthe related questions. We will celebrate the opening of La Gallerie d’Absinthe in March, when the infamous ban on the green drink was officially lifted in 2007.

 

Join us in welcoming the Absinthe Museum and experience a sip of one of the world’s more notorious beverages for yourself. The reception will feature Lucid absinthe, provided by Veridian Spirits.
