Evidently, absinthe is legal in U.S. now that distillers do not use thujone, which is a banned substance.

Now, absinthe's unique qualities are believed to be a combination of the wormwood and the blend of herbs and botanicals.
I'm a publicist working with St. George Spirits. I believe Lucy Farber has offered to send you a sample, but I wanted to send you some press materials as well. Attached are a background sheet on St. George Spirits and info on the Absinthe Vert.
Let me know if there's anything else you'd like. Glad that you enjoyed the video, and looking forward to being in touch.
A very small sample will be in the mail soon. The real question for me - is absinthe actually any good? We'll see soon enough.
