Suntory used to make Hermes Absinthe a few years back.
Of particular interest to me is if the Japanese brew Absinthe as it a bit prohibitive to have it sent over the pond.
There are a few imported absinthes available in Japan, but mainly in Tokyo or online. Do you know Bar Tram in Tokyo? They probably have the best range in Japan, and many of us who have been to Boveresse or the Absinthiades in the last few years have met Rogerio and Ito from there.

In the meantime, I'll have to print up some more "herbal cooking oil" labels and have some friends relabel the bottles and ship over a few (we have access to USPS via the FPO system) I'll have to have it shipped parcel post so it goes via surface ship - the last time, it was sent via Priority and tragically, the Vieux Carre's cork pushed out due to the pressure during flight. It made for a great smelling box...though I near cried at the loss.

I mis-read that as "ALL the absinthe crooks and trannies*"
....it is always amazing how Alan knows ALL the absinthe nooks and cranies all over the world....
Yes, I know them too.
* Am I allowed to say that? Hopefully I didn't offend anyone.

Ya know, we're not nearly as repressive as some folks would have you believe.

"Anti-alcoholics are unfortunates in the grip of water, that terrible poison, so solvent and corrosive that out of all substances, it has been chosen for washing and scourings, and a drop of water, added to a clear liquid like Absinthe, muddies it."

I popped into a Suntory liquor store last summer and inquired about absinthe, the man gave me a smile and said 'No Absinthe' I got the feeling it wasn't the first time he'd been asked about it.
Thank you all for the welcome!
