American Absinthe?

Recommended Posts

Shabba Posted Today, 11:54 AM

I had an opportunity to try the CO version of the Marteau this past weekend. Wonderful stuff.

 

Agreed! :)

You should let Hiram comment on it.

He must have a few words to say about it.

One or two.

 

After a night of rest, a blood transfusion and a liver transplant, I'm almost back up to speed. I'll be posting a full statement in a little while but wanted to address a few points here.

All these years and I have never tasted the Marteau.
I'm pretty sure you did when you were here, but I may be mistaken.
Alright where is the info on how to obtain the Marteau?
It's coming.
Screw the geography lesson. This is a fantastic development!
It'll be even better when the ones in production in the US get released.
Yeah, TexMexSinthe is right around the corner.
I was kind of intrigued by the Canadian Absinthe mentioned in Jamie's article... Taboo by Okanagan Spirits. Is it maybe the only Absinthe being legally distilled in North America? ... However, they do seem to have a respectable line of quality eau de vies and grappas, so who knows.

 

Any opinions?

Yes, I've had the Taboo (unfortunate choice of name). It's very impressive and Canadians have a lot to be thankful for finally. It's made with a very clean but distinctly fruity eau de vie and a really nice wormwood.

An announcement regarding its US launch and distribution was made in one of the seminars, and it got a VERY warm reception.

Thanks, I'm glad you liked it. Not quite accurate, but see my post later.

I'm working on a complete announcement with all the current details, but for the moment, one quick note to clear up a misunderstanding:

 

I did not announce an immanent US release for Marteau. I said that I was launching my own brand and that it would be available in October, online, and that I hoped to bring it to the US later.

That's definitely it. :laf:

 

Ya gotsta log out, darlin'.

Duly edited. Probably would have helped if I hadn't been late and only caught the tail end of the announcement. :cheers:
Not just you. A bunch of bloggers and reporters, too.
Remember, you can only keep us in suspense for so long.
There are one or two other folks involved. I'm waiting to hear what I don't know and when I stopped knowing it. ;)

Well a hearty congrats to you Hiram. Without a speck of doubt, I'm certain you've deserved it and more. And to the other mystery folks involved as well.

 

 

I only have one comment:

 

October! You're making us wait until fookin' October?????

 

You're cruel.

DK - how cool!

 

I actually won a talent contest when I was a kid, doing Elvis AND the Jordanaires, with that song. I sang, sans music, all the parts.

Dad was a huge Elvis fan.

 

Great. Now I feel REALLY old. ;)

Excellent!

 

Given their line of grappas and eau de vies that's what I was hoping to hear!

 

Now to see about tracking down a bottle...I do know a couple Canadians...Hmmm...

Here's an article about Taboo with a small review and a few questions:
