Got a press release yesterday with this subject line:
"ABSINTHE IS FINALLY LEGAL IN BALTIMORE!!!"
My initial response:
"It's been legal for months! I had some last week at the Kitty Kat Bar!"
I read it a little more, and realized the release is technically pumping Kubler, "the first authentic Swiss Absinthe to the United States market in nearly 100 years."
Truth be told, the American stuff will do just fine for me. It has wormwood and thujone.
But if you still want to have a taste of the Swiss stuff, Ixia is having a tasting of Kubler 7 p.m.-10 p.m. this coming Monday.
**Just got word: This event is a private, invite-only event. I'm checking to see if Ixia will stock this brand of absinthe permanently in the future.**
