Absinthe legal in the US after a long absence

Well, sort of. First, a confession. As I’ve written in the past, I have a mild obsession with Absinthe. I’ve sampled it once though its provenance was unclear, and I’ve debated myself on the wisdom of importing a bottle from Europe, which one can do with relative impunity. As of next month, according to this article in the New York Times, I should be able to buy a bottle from the local liquor store. A US company worked with the Louisiana chemist who’s been almost single handedly reviving the drink to formulate an Absinthe that would pass regulatory issues here, and they’ve succeeded. A bottle will run about $60. Guess what I’m bringing to AGCW this year boys 🙂
