It Isn't Taboo any more

Nice little article in The Vancouver Sun about the previously mentioned Taboo absinthe from Okanagan Spirits. I liked the comparison made when they tried to get shelf space at the government run liquor store. The "tiny absinthe allotment" was filled by a Czechoslovakian brand that was "about as similar to the subtle Taboo as, say, Baby Duck is to vintage champagne". Even that is probably being too kind! I think we have to speed our efforts at getting a bottle.

This green fairy has a magical touch
It is romantic, poetic, a little bit dangerous. It is also delicious, at least when the absinthe in question is the Taboo from Okanagan Spirits.
