Absinthe in America

The NYT reports:

[T]his year two brands of absinthe made according to traditional recipes have been legally imported to the United States.

Last spring a French brand, Lucid, made its debut here, using 19th-century distilling methods and replicating chemical analyses of pre-ban absinthe. A Swiss absinthe, K├╝bler, appeared on the American market a few weeks ago, using a 1863 family formula.
