I've never seen Everclear at the LCBO before (as a matter of fact, probably never seen it in canada before).

I guess Barcardi 151 (75.5%) is the max you can get at the LCBO. I am not entirely sure because I don't know what the legal limit on alcohol proofage is in canada.

Then what do we use to make Jello shots? When I in Texas, my cousin told me everclear was used to make them and I got dared to drink a capful of it. Boy was I ever stupid. I couldn't breath for 5 seconds.

I saw Absinthe at the Summerhill and Younge LCBO a week ago. It comes with the spoon thing too.

It's the fake stuff with no/little wormwood in it. You can drink a hundred bottles and not get the effect of the real stuff.

Good stuff comes from over seas in Romania or Czech I believe. People also sell wormwood on ebay so you can make your owq absinthe.

There is something they sell that is ~90% alcohol. Can't remember what it's called atm though, and the search function at the lcbo website is down atm. Next time it's back up select Product Type - Spirits, Product Category - Alcohol and it's there.

I do believe it requires a prescription to get it, but I've never asked so I could be wrong on this. I believe it's a special order item.

Off the shelf though, 151 is your best bet AFAIK.

Search is functional again. It's called Alcohol - 95*, item number 288142. It's $23.85 for a 500ml bottle, 95% alcohol. I can't link because it's in some sort of a frame, with the properties location being http://www.lcbo.com/lcbo-ear/ProductResultsController.

If anyone does try and buy this stuff let me know how it goes. I was going to use it as camping fuel (both for the stove and to get toasted after) but ended up just getting the old Heet (for fuel) and SoCo (to get toasted) instead.

Edit: I was told second hand you needed a prescription for it, but not from anyone remotely attached to either the medical profession, lawmakers or the LCBO.
