A bar that sells Absinthe!
    #1703673 - 07/10/03 08:30 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Well I had my first taste of Absinthe the other day, and I like it quite a bit!  :smile:

I only had one glass, but it was enough to get me a little tipsy before work (I work in a bar anyway, so no biggie). What a taste! I'd have to compare it to Sambuca without as strong of a licorice taste, and MUCH sweeter (could be from the sugar cube).

The chick at the bar did it all up, too. The way I've read it's supposed to be served: melting the sugar cube into the glass and adding water. It was kind of fun to have this drink prepared in such a way for me.

This place has TONNES of the stuff, too. Bottles and bottles of it. They had more Absinthe than any other liquer!

I think the thujone content has to be MUCH lower than back in the day in order for them to sell it here in Canada, but the stuff is still 150 proof so it packs quite a punch  :smirk:

On top of all that...the place is just a sweet chill hangout place. Know what I mean?

Speaking of sambuca....you gotta love flaming shots!

I hope I'm not the only one who likes to get drunk on weeknights?

geo? where's my backup?!?

This place must go through a lot of it.

They're using empty bottles of it for candle holders on almost every table  :smirk:

Absinthe?

It's on Erowid, if you want a lot of info :wink:

Quickly: it's a liquer made with wormwood, which has thujone in it, which is at least mildly psychedelic/hallucinogenic.

I didn't know that Absinthe was legal in Canada... the only country I've ever seen it in is Spain. Do they sell it at liquor stores as well in Canada?

Well I'm not sure about that...but I think since the thujone content they are allowed is MUCH lower than the thujone content in the good ol days, there shouldn't be a problem.

No as far as I know it's not sold at ANY liquer stores in Canada. Well at least not in Ontario.

This place is the ONLY place I have ever heard of selling Absinthe in Canada. Absinthe itself isn't illegal in Canada, but Health Canada has a limit on the ammount of thujone that can be in a consumable product. I've heard that's how they get away with it - the Absinthe does not have a high thujone content.

I've also heard that it's possible to order some from countries where it is legal, and that is how bars can "get around the law"...

Personally I think it's Absinthe without much thujone.

yeah the absinthe you get these days legally has none of the halucinogenic ingredients it used to have.. at least if it does, you'd die of alcohol poisoning first. Its just like a strong spirit now.

I once read that it is the reason the french were a bit rubbish in World War I.. they were all bombed off their head on absynthe half the time

absinthe was banned in the u.s. in 1912.

"Although it is banned in some Western countries, absinthe isn't controlled as a drug but as a food. As with many other things considered poisonous, you aren't allowed to commercially make food or drink containing more than trace amounts of thujone. However, simple possession of thujone-containing ethanol solutions will probably not get you into legal problems. Presumably you would be legally liable for any possible damages if you gave absinthe to others to drink. Artemisia species are completely legal and are attractive perennial ornamental plants.

In the United States of America, absinthe was originally banned by Food Inspection Decision 147 in 1912. Now, thujone is banned as a food additive according to Section 801A of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act of August, 1972. Wormwood was included on a list of unsafe herbs which the FDA released in 1975."

i made have made undistilled absinthe with gem clear, smirnoff 100, and some port wine. the wine was the only one worth drinking. i still hve some smirnoff absinthe i have been trying to gag down.
