Jade and Combier Absinthes New Shipment

Those already in the know will be familiar with Ted Breaux, a biochemist and researcher who grew up in New Orleans. Ted rose to fame when he cracked the “Absinthe code” in the late 1990s, employing gas chromatography to reverse engineer the spirit from sealed bottles of the 1901 original produced at the Pontarlier Pernod Fils factory several months before the facility burnt down. Ted subsequently set up a business, Jade Liqueurs, with the aim of recreating several 'rediscovered’ Absinthes. The fruits of his labour rank amongst the most compelling examples of Absinthe on the market today, a testimony to his commitment to historical detail and authenticity.
