Dear Edelweiss, 

I have some information on the liqueure.However, if I understand your
question right, you're actually asking where you can buy it. I'm
afraid that it is almost impossible to buy it outside Belgium. Would
you like an answer with some scarce possibilities anyway?

I asked a friend of mine who was coming to the USA to get some
information on the Elixir d'Anvers.  He did better than that, he had
one of his product managers call the distillery which confirmed that
they do NOT export to the USA and he brought a bottle to me here in

There is a woman at the distillery at Antwerp who speaks perfect
English and will arrange to ship a minimum of six bottles at 12.90
euros per bottle plus shipping and duty.  You can communicate with her
by email at the address given by debbi and repeated below.  Good
luck...I love the elixir....Thanks for pointing it out to

Following is the email which the product manager at Ronse/Renaix,
Belgium sent to me prior to the bottle arriving with my friend, David

"This worldfamous alcolholic beverage is well known in Antwerp and
healthy for people with stomach problems. A secret mix of 34 different
herbs give it a unique taste and flavor. Price of one bottle is +-
15ˆ/bottle (at retail in Ronse/Renaix)

They also have different drinks like Elexir de Spa, etc.
My grandmother had a sip every day and became 94 years of age.

Further questions, don't hesitate.
Kind Regards,

Elexir d'Anvers Distillery
Haantjeslei 132
B-2018 Antwerpen
Telephone 011 32 3 237.98.06
Fax 011 32 3 216.43.94

Good luck

search strategy:  email to my friend who assigned the project to one
of his product managers who emailed me the information and received
the bottle from David when he arrived in Boston for some business

The Elixir d'Anvers' has a wonderful taste, obviously anise, but many
other herbs as well.  It reminds me of Strega but not as strong a
taste and much more complex.  I'm going to try a bit with lunch each
day to determine the effect.  seedy
