Hi all, my name is André and I'm new to this superb forum. I'm from Sweden, and my drink of choice up until now have been beer but have stumbled across absinthe a couple of times before and always thought it was an interesting drink. The time has come to show absinthe the respect it's worth and have that dance with the green fairy :)

After scanning he web for the best forums I settled down here, it seemed like the obvoius choice after reading through your on going quality discussions. In time, I hope I can add to these discussions.

Let the green hour begin

Greetings, André! :wave2:

Bienvenue à la Nouvelle Belle Epoque! Welcome to the Wormwood Society forum!

As they say, it's l'heure verte somewhere in the world. Enjoy!! :cheers:
Does Minnalouche know that his absinthe
Will pass from change to change
As emerald clouds to opal,
And yet nothing will change?

Still he drinks opaline.

Welcome to the WS. :wave2:
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.

Welcome to the forum, Sweden is a country I would like to visit more. We go to Norway every 3-4 years to visit my wife's cousins and have only been to Sweden once and that was to catch a ship to England. :cheers:

Thank you all :)

Actually Sweden and Norway are very much alike to non-Scandinavians, but of course there some things here to see and do. The big difference is that Swedes go to Norway to work and earn a good buck, while Norway refuses to recognize us as the big brother in every other aspect :laugh:

I, for one, do not think the green hour is enough.

I prefer green evenings that run into green nights, and well into green mornings.

No I haven't come that far yet, but after reading the thread I have to look into it. It also seems like there's a couple bottles available in three of our nation wide monopoly liquor stores at Systembolaget. Should be able to get a bottle down to the south then :)
