USA Launch

Tuesday, 03 June 2008 09:21


La Clandestine is now stepping up its programme for the USA! After several months working with our new US partners, DC Craft Spirits, we are delighted to announce that we are going into new States and increasing our overall support in the important US market.

We are building on the distribution already gained in the key States of New York, California, Texas, and Louisiana. In addition we are now launching in Massachusetts, other States in New England and Arizona. Because La Clandestine is hand-crafted and not made in a factory, we don't make enormous quantities of it. Claude-Alain Bugnon has been working very hard to make as much as we can for the first shipments, but there are only so many hours in a day! Swiss clocks are very accurate and we have not found a way to get more than 24 hours into one day ... yet.

We will be publish regular updates here.

In the meantime, here are the historic (for us, anyway!) photos of our first order for USA as it is processed ...

Pre-empting the launch, The Green Magazine has a great article about absinthe with a nice focus on an absinthe that is not green (but maybe our competitors are!):
