Abinsthe has been legal in the US for almost two years now, but it’s still a mystery to many (for background and myth-busting facts, read our absinthe story from the Jan/Feb 2008 issue).
For people in the New York area, DrinkUpNY.com‘s Absinthe in April tasting on April 30th, will offer the opportunity to taste most of the absinthes available on the market today. Attendees will have the chance to meet a few of the producers themselves, including: Gwydion Stone of Marteau, Lance Winters of St. George Spirits, and Bryan Alex of Obsello. The event offers a great opportunity to taste many varieties of this unique spirit, compare them, and pick your favorites—all for the cost of less than one bottle. Check it out!
