Oh well, they got back to me and shipping alone would be 288.75 plus the 90$ for the carton. Sounded great too

Damn. Maybe a few of us can go in to give it a try?

What a shame as I am so on board with this. If anyone is friendly with a distributor that might bring this into the states. I have spoken to them and a pallet is a lot cheaper than a case and I can't belive that there isn't a posh herbal store that wouldn't want to stock this. PS from this site the poppy was omitted. Thanx Damonster for bringing it back up

You got me started googling for a way to make it. Although the ingredient list is there, the quantities are not on any site I've found. Nor is the method. Bummer.

hm. starting with amounts of each herb that at least shouldn't hurt might be a beginning.
sounds like something i've been searching for since i don't like alcohol and am in need of a nice buzz every few days that keeps me from becoming too unsatisfied. or at least on a level that doesn't hurt too much :)

if i ever get all the stuff together i'll give it a try!

thanks for the ingredients list

one thing that seems not so easily available is "Samphire", that's got to be Crithmum maritimum - is that identification correct?
the only available form i could find is in wine with salt ...

Until about 5 years ago this was available in the US.I would buy it by the case.It is delicious cold or warm, alone or with a bit of wine. I have tried to get wine shops and herbal shops to carry it with no luck.
