Combier - The Jade Range of Belle Epoque Absinthes

Produced at the historic Combier distillery in century-old alambics originally built for Pernod Fils, the Jade range of Belle Epoque absinthes offers some of the closest commercially available approximations of the fabled absinthes of the pre-ban era.


Crafted by New Orleans native Ted Breaux using wherever possible the original equipment and methods employed by the artisans of the past, these absinthes are based on careful selection of only the most fragrant herbs, the finest grape-based alcohols and scrupulous attention to the original 19th century production protocols.


But the Jade absinthes offer more than historical verisimilitude - they offer the discerning modern-day absintheur an extraordinary range of taste experiences, from the remarkable new PF 1901, a clone of pre-ban Pernod Fils, to the aromatic Edouard, to the full bodied and powerful VS 1898, the delicately floral Nouvelle Orleans and the crystal-clear Blanchette with its scent of alpine herbs.


These are, quite simply, the flagship products of the modern absinthe renaissance, and every absinthe lover should try them.
