Where is it legal to buy Absinthe?

I have a friend about to do some travelling (Europe mostly I think) and he has made it his duty to buy me some absinthe. Where should I send him?

Wikipedia claims that it is legal throughout the European Union


I had some very good absinthe in a bar in Prague.

But… I’m fairly sure it’s not legal to bring absinthe into the USA. Better check the official rules on that, before your friend gets into trouble.

Since the OP has been answered, let’s close this one. I don’t need an extended discussion while I’m asleep tonight.
