Found it: It's Hi-Time Wine Cellars. Jade NO is $99.99 (well, it IS under $100, technically speaking).


Yep. That's where I got mine. There are perks to living in the same county as Hi-Time Wine Cellars! :harhar:
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.

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.



Me either, I'm sure that I would have done the same. Kinda like how another member recently put the word out RE: the new release of sauvage.Much appreciated btw!!!! :thumbup:

I don't see what would be wrong with that, either. If it's out there, it's out there. If he had been told something privately, was asked not to repeat it, or was expected not to, and he had done it anyway, that would be different.

You're all kicking a dead horse. At the time of the first posting, things were up, then down, then up, then down, leading people to believe that is was probably a mistake. In the past, it was requested of us by more than one highly respected producer to not make announcements about certain product launches until they were able to do it themselves. We're only trying to make it easy on them to do things on their timeline.

I'm not saying Miguel did anything wrong. But I wanted to make clear what our policy on 'breaking news' is. It's the first time I've ever mentioned it, but it's most certainly not the first time the Board has said something about it.

No doubt. Haven't we already been through all this before on another subject?

and the sad silent song, made the hour twice as long,

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?

I'd say the Eduoard.

I was impressed by the photos to which Miguel linked. I thought the labels, the bottles, and the photography were spectacular. The absinthe may be something else entirely, but from a marketing standpoint, it's absurd to imagine Viridian or Ted being disappointed by the inevitable result of people in this forum seeing those images in advance. And that's even IF it was in advance. This is ADVERTISING, people. For all I know, what was seen was intended by seen at exactly the time it was, for exactly the amount of time it was. The Internet introduced new variables into the way an ad campaign can be conducted. Any advertiser who wouldn't take advantage of them is not much of an Internet advertiser.

Now that is Art-ful thinking.

The text could use a little work, however. The year of original production of the absinthe to which the "1901" is a "tribute" is entirely wrong, and the abv listed in the fine print at the bottom of each and every page does not reflect that of the respective absinthe, but rather that of Lucid.

That is why I think they are mere place holders. The labels don't even match the current labels. Ricard would pitch a legal fit at PF1901 being sold here. The current (and better looking) label calls it JL1901, so these Viridian pages must be old.

Well I didn't study any details, and certainly putting those photos up could have been a mistake, but you know what they say about publicity. I'm particularly intrigued by that C.F. Berger. Years ago Ted created a Berger clone using alcohol he had distilled from champagne and I had the opportunity, thanks to Peter Schaf, to compare it side by side with vintage Berger. I think he and I agreed that the difference between the two was negligible apart from the obvious effects of aging in the vintage sample.

I dont know about you guys, but im looking at the Veridian homepage, and they have all the Jades listed. In big pics, on the front page. Must be good, I have been eagerly awaiting a new bottle of jade ever since my 1901 ran out a couple years ago

Mine arrived yesterday. They only had it in 20cl at the time I ordered. Still pretty.

LdF does it again. Three days from time of order to arrival. :thumbup:

They have the 70's with the new label.I just ordered from them a couple weeks ago.(Three day delivery for me too).I think they just didn't get around to changing the pic yet.Check their site again,you don't get the "temporarily out of stock" notice when you click on it so looks like they have it.New label is very nice,but I kinda like the old one.

So those labels in the photo at the Viridian site to which Miguel linked were the old labels, not the new labels? Fooled me; I don't keep up with it.

The black and gold would have been more appropriate to Nouvelle Orleans. The label's okay, but it looks pretty serious, like Manfred von Richthofen.
