Absinthe Ban Lifted In US October 09 2013

That's right, you guys really just read those words. The United States has lifted its ban on the production and sale of absinthe with wormwood and companies are rearing up and readying to start pushing their products. It's not the same as traditional absinthe in that it doesn't have any thujone in it, an ingredient thought to be responsible for the drinks psychotropic effects, but that actually has no such effect, meaning you still get the real deal. So far there are St. George Spirits and Lucid being the two main distillers of absinthe with wormwood in the US. We're sure there are some more out there already or will be soon though. Keep looking, but really just rejoice at the fact that ABSINTHE IS FINALLY LEGAL HERE!!!
