Default Absinthe

Can anyone tell me if absinthe can be purchased in the eastern carribean. I seem to remember it being illegal in the U.S. some time ago. Any info would be appreciated

You probably don't want to buy this stuff in any event. I seem to recall that it is both addictive and poisonous. If it is illegal in the US, as I think it is, you can't bring it back either.

You can legally buy absinthe in Spain, Great Britain, Switzerland, and Japan.
Its great stuff - and not too expensive.
My wife and I pick some up whenever we are in one of those countries.
The effect it has on you is somewhere between alcohol and marijuana.

It is great, it really has a kick being 70 percent proof, very easy to buy in Spain.

I've ordered from this company in Germany twice, and have been very happy:

Order at least two bottles, as the shipping is steep for only one, but for two it seems less painful. We like Ulex Strong. Be sure to buy a spoon from them and select COURIER service.

We live in Texas, btw.

Default Online...

I don't know about on the ship but I know some good sites online to get it. It just takes a long time to get here.
