Hi,
I live in Portland Oregon and looking to buy an Absinthe fountain. Does anyone know where I could find one. I can always order online but the shipping from outside of the US is crazy not to mention the chance of breakage. Any help would be appreciated.

Many over seas vendors offer free shipping w/a $200 purchase,and I've always found their packaging to be more than adequate,so it's worth looking into.You can always pad your order w/a couple of glasses or spoons if necessary.

What a great opportunity for me to point out Absinthe Devil has been great. Brian has very actively support The Great American Absinthe Festival, been the driving force behind the American absinthe Butterfly and in short, has been a great guy. If I was looking for a very traditional fountain and expected excellent customer service, I would most assuredly go to Absinthe Devil. Commercial over. :cheers:

The WS has an approved vendors list, and a few of those carry fountains. Lucid also sells fountains and see-saw drippers.

What do you mean? Is Butterfly going to be sold in the States soon?

aha.. okay. Damn I thought it might be available in the US soon. I bought a bottle in London a month ago and it's more than half gone already. :3869-sadbanana:

But still half full. ;)
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.

Lucid also sells fountains and see-saw drippers.

I'm fairly certain Lucid hasn't had those in stock for a couple of years now.
