Nope. In Budapest, US$15 will get you a decent bottle and US$30 will get you an excellent bottle.DrunkenJackFlask wrote:...So was my $150 for two bottles of Absinthe worth it?...

I looked it up on the internet and found a whole bunch of site that sell it for really cheap or sell abssinthe kits in the US. Most of these also sell mushroom kits and things of that sort. I'm more than a bit leary of trying this, has anyone ever tried these kits or know anything about them.

Go to Bratislava or Prague and you can whittle the price down further.
Absinthe is a wonderful drink (and it makes for a wonderful drunk) but at those prices?!
Someone, somewhere is getting very rich. At rip off rates. And that ain't right!
Damnit, for not much more than they are charging for a case of six bottles, you could get an aeroplane ticket to the Czech Republic, Slovakia or Hungary, buy your absinthe at the normal price, have a holiday (and a very cheap piss-up can be had in any of those countries), pick up some extra bottles, take them home, sell them at the internet price (but with guaranteed delivery - by hand) and have your holiday paid for. And probably make some change into the bargain.

Good for you.DrunkenJackFlask wrote:But I have a tendency to learn from everything (sometimes it takes a few repetitions), so I expect I'll investigate your recommendations in the weeks following my friend and I hunkering down for our first night with the green faerie.
