Viridian Spirits has partnered with Republic National Distributing Co. (RNDC) to distribute its Lucid Absinthe Supérieure brand across the US.

RNDC, the nation's second largest premium wine and spirits distributor, will bring Lucid Absinthe Supérieure to both Texas and Louisiana, the company said.

Viridian Spirits president Jared Gurfein said: "We initially felt that there would be a demand for absinthe in the US after we witnessed its re-emergence on the European scene and in American pop culture. Now that we've seen the overwhelming reaction to Lucid in the US, we believe that a partnership with RNDC will help take this brand to new levels." 

The absinthe will retail at US$59.99 per 750ml bottle and will be available in high-end retail shops and establishments.
