I believe it's illegal in the US. Someone told me you can get it, but it's ridiculously expensive, and who knows if they were talking out of their ass.

can't remember the name right now...

I'm kinda skeptical about this site. I'm seriously tempted to order a bottle, but they are based in New York, and I always heard this stuff was illegal in the US of A. Did I hear wrong?

If it's not illegal why is it not big here like it is in Europe?

True absinthe is illegal in the US because it's made from wormwood and supposedly has hallucinogenic properties.

I drank it one night while I was in the Czech Republic....I wasn't seeing shit, but I was way more drunk than I've ever been from any other kind of alcohol. I still have a small bottle I brought back from Prague. thumbs.gif

I have seen several bottles in the US during my life but don't know how they got here. The guys who owned them wouldn't share unless they were chicks so I didn't get to try any.

If you are near Vancouver ever this might help

"Absinthe of superior quality. Very strong and probably the only genuine absinthe on the market. Distilled from carefully selected herbs and made from eau-de-vie, distilled from selected wine. An old alembic (absinthe) still heated by steam is used as well as the same amount of wormwood as in the 19th century legitimate Absinthe. NO artificial oils, colorants or sugar are added. "

From Absinth.com... based in New York. Hmmmm.... wonder if it's a scam.

I am stationed in England and i have had the stuff. It if for real! It doesn't glow like it was in the movie and there is NO WAY any human being could drink it like those kids were drinking it. It is only a few % away from rubbing alcohol. There is a way to drink it that involves a spoon, sugar, fire and water and you will get FLOORED! It is illegal in the states like was said earlier. Ohh and there is not just one stregnth, i have seen about 5 my self. The stronger the content the smaller the bottle. drinkup[1].gif

Much more reasonable prices.

Plus they do acknowlege that its illegal. I suspect that the new york site is selling an absinthe wannabe. I have heard and seen first hand "illegal" stuff being sold on the net. I saw on a 20/20 like show some people buying small amounts of pot on the net and they spoke with the fbi and they said it was illegal but just not a priority. Ive also seen people buy stuff like prescription drugs after filling out a form/prescripton and then they got the stuff.

So is it illegal to buy it? yes. Is it illegal to possess it? Not sure. But the main concern is is anyone pursuing it?

wow it was even banned in Europe until 1981. .

Being from the Detroit area a lot of ppl go to Canada (drinking age of 19) to get drunk. Well there is this 1 cafe there (yeah cafe) called MILK and they make this like milkshake with Absinth in it and some other alcohol. I had 1 and seriously felt like a drank 57 beers. I was so drunk and i dont remember haluscinatting but maybe I did. After that drink I remember waking up in the car with my friend Ashley. Boy it was fun. drinkup[1].gif

I have a friend that buys a bunch of it off the net... he says the you are buying the "bottle" not the contents.

This has nothing to do with Absinth but I didn't want to open another thread. When I was in Poland for a month I drank a Polish vodka called Zubrowka. It was banned in the U.S. but now is legal. You can ONLY mix it with apple juice. anything else makes it tast gross. Trust me on this one I tried numerous other things and nothing else works. It goes down smooth so you drink a lot of it and will get fucked up. Not as quick as Absinth but damned good.

Jtt619, i read that same article. From what I understand, it is illegal for a person to "purchase" it IN the U.S., possibly meaning that it would be illegal for me to buy it from a liquor store inside the U.S. Also, it's illegal to "sell" inside the U.S.

From what I gathered in the Maxim, you can order it from Europe, over the internet.... since the place that charges your account is overseas, and have it shipped to your home in the US legally.

I'm saving up to buy a bottle, I'll repost here to let you know of my findings. From what i hear though, it's wicked shit.

OMFG keep that Don Julio son of a bitch away from me.... i dunno what it was, but i was at a Double tree hotel in austin, went down to the bar to get a shot of patron, didn't have it, asked for a jagerbomb, didn't have jager, so they suggested don julio silver lable.... omfg it smelled like paint thinner, i was like, fk it... i'll take it like a man. The shit didn't even clear my throat, it came flying out my nose. Major burnination.

I had tears coming out of my eyes for the next 3 hours, it did clean my sinuses out though... fkn a. I'll stick to Patron.

oh, and Kmatt, by saying i'm saving up, in no way did i mean that i'll actually save up enough money in the coming month... possibly a year or two maybe....

Are you sure it was Don Julio? That is $50/bottle tequila, which is so smooth, we were sipping it with ice and a lime twist.
