Absinthe from the Schnapps Musuem

18 Nov 2009 Carli said

Hi all, <BR>Just a quick note to let you know that you will not be able to bring ANY absinthe back to Australia from Vienna (made the mistake). Definitely buy some though, cause its delicious, but you will have to drink it while on your travels <img src="" alt="Smiler" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin::)--><BR><BR>Carli

    I don’t know what the rules are in Australia, but coming into America I got two bottles of it through customs. I simply declared 2 bottles of Liquor on my customs paperwork and nobody batted an eyelash. Had they searched me, I’m not sure what happened.

    That said, I gave one bottle to a friend, and after 10 months, finally opened it the other night, wild times to be had with Mr. Fischers fun little creation.

    Still have most of it left because I only tend to bring it out for real big nights haha!
