I've been drinking some high end stuff for a good while now,& I wanted to see if I've become jaded.(no pun intended) So last night I poured a small glass of Kübler & I didn't have a problem with it at all.I'm gonna start adding it to my four brand sessions every now & then.

I'm with Amber on this one...

Although the NO label looks different than the one I have.

Viridian is the importer of the Jades. Until recently they only showed two absinthes, Lucid and NO. Not a mention of the others. So all the talk of the Jades coming remained talk for over a year.

Now those actually whose job is to bring them here, actually put it on their website that they are doing it. As recently as Tuesday-ish, only Lucid and NO were mentioned. So, it does look like we might not have to fret customs to enjoy the Jades.

I don't mean to be a killjoy, but in the past, it's been frowned upon to make an announcement about a specific brand's launch without letting the company itself have enough time to put something out first. Sometimes info is accidentally leaked online before promos are formally launched, and it can be upsetting to have said launch preempted.

In plain English, their IT screwed up? Since it was all formal on their website, I thought it was a done deal. That is all I intended to post. I didn't run my mouth based on some FB post by Jade, I went strictly by their website. If you want to blame anyone for their premature climax, talk to their IT.

By their retraction, it is obvious they had a mess up. Bastids, they got me all exited. Oh well, back to waiting.

That ain't plain English for us ESL types. :) But I get the point. Reminds me of the kid that left the iPhone4 at a bar.

I deleted my post on the Jade FB page. You can delete these ones if you like, but do remember they were public info for a bit.

It almost looked like they got hacked, as an insider would have access to the latest labels. Or should...

I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

I must have missed it. More like a lesson in proper IT work.

For a brief moment their website had all the jades in the top right corner. It coincided with my visit. That led to my first post, since I thought that meant the Jades where here. While the pages for the others Jades were still there an hour ago, the links to them on the main pages and menu where gone.

Since there had been no formal news, I'm guessing someone messing with the Viridian website screwed up. TAB has not hidden his intentions to bring the Jades. Since the photos look old, maybe those pages are also old, like place holders for when they do bring them here. As for upcoming news, all we know is what Brian posted.

That is as best as I can make sense of it.

Don't thank me, thank the Viridian Web person.

Do you do Web design for Viridian? :) J/K.

.. Since the photos look old, maybe those pages are also old, like place holders for when they do bring them here. ...


I think this is what makes sense to me, and the only screwup was that for an hour or less, they mistakenly activated links on their main page. So it there is no release of Jades, just some IT dude making a temporary mistake.

Ok folks, nothing to see here, I got all exited about a web hiccup.

Otherwise known as "testing", which tends to be less of a "mistake" and more of a job requirement/wise thing to do.

I'm sure glad my clients are understanding and don't immediately cry foul if we have to check something out quickly to ensure everything is perfect and ready to go on the real launch day. :wub:

In my defence, they announced the change in February, so I did not pre-empt it. I do not follow them closely so I wasn't aware of the news. I think it is fair to say I wasn't the only one waiting for some of these offerings to make it here, so that explains my original post on this matter. All the other posts were to defend my character, or my sanity. :twitchsmile:

This is the only place I go to look for absinthe news.

Why surf when you can get all the info you need right here. Piece o' cake.

I just noticed the part about Veridian's press release dated February.
Looking in on the Veridian website, over several hours now, As of the time of *this* post. the whole Jade line is, and has been visable.
Anyone in the outside world can go there, at any time, and see what they see.

I really don't see that Miguel did anything wrong in this particular case. As I said, what you see is what you see. If a company puts something out on their own website, I am going to assume that that is exactly what they want me to see. It is not like Miguel said something like he read some random Blog and dropped it in here.
He was reporting in good faith.

Trying to get a handle on typing with my iPad. Still easier than removing my first jade cork so many years ago.


Ha Ha! ain't that the truth!


I feel so much better knowing that I'm not the only one! :)

Talk about anticipation! :dribble: Hey, they could use that in a commercial. Oh, wait. I guess it's already been done by some catsup company.

I have not yet purchased my 2nd Jade, but do any of you battle-hardened veterans (or is that bottle-hardened?! ;) ) have any tips for me when the time comes?
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.
