Flying Monkeys Land

The "flying monkeys" from the good folks at Liqueurs de France finally arrived the other day here at Chez InAbsinthia and we couldn't be happier. It took less than five days, including the weekend, from clicking the "Submit Order" button to the USPS hand delivering the package. We were a little surprised it wasn't a courier, instead a real US postman doing the delivery, but as long as it all works out well in the end, we're happy.

The box itself was rather flimsy, but each bottle was carefully wrapped in a nest of solid Styrofoam, although the Montmarte was trying to peak out the top. We ordered three bottles of absinthe - Montmartre, Eichelberger 68 Verte and La Ptite, a Swiss La Bleu. I guess we weren't paying close enough when we ordered, as we were surprised by the small 500ml bottles of Montmartre and Eichelberger, while the Ptite was 700ml. But each should be more than enough to indulge in.

And an indulgence it is, as absinthe isn't a cheap hobby! Shipping alone cost US$65, bringing the total cost of these three bottles to a staggering US$240. Thus, our cravings are only satisfied a couple of times a year. It's so much better when you are doing the ordering, as the currency used on the LdF web site is English Pounds, so it is much easier to swallow a charge of 123.50, at least until the conversion kicks in. But it was an easy and safe process, and, as mentioned, very fast, so we should have reviews on all three bottle soon.
