After a good deal of wrangling with numerous state officials to the north, we are gladdened in the extreme to proclaim our fair neighbor, a friend to you who live in the Evergreen State. While it did take some not insignificant exchange of documents and a small bribe known as a "permit fee", it is now possible for men and women in the greater Seattle Metropolitan area to find for purchase, a bottle or two of L'Afrique. Moreover, some of our esteemed bartenders and stewards of fine cocktails will be have this unique ingredient in their tool kit. For those who would take their restoratives in such public parlors, our agents in the urban district report that among other fine establishments, L’Afrique may be working its way into your cocktails at Vessel, Skillet, and Liberty, Smith, and Terra Plata for a start.
