The Jade Esprit Edouard absinthe, a replica of the historical Edouard Pernod, is an absinthe for connoisseurs. By 1897, the house of Edouard Pernod boasted a reputation for crafting some of the best absinthe the world has ever known. At the time of the ban (in 1915 in France), Edouard Pernod had become the 3rd largest absinthe distiller in France. The Edouard Pernod label was considered by many absinthe connoisseurs to be one of the finest marques, certainly on par with the famed Pernod Fils, A. Junod and Fritz Duval labels.
Almost a century later, bottles of perfectly preserved Edouard Pernod absinthe have yielded the secrets of this famed producer. The exquisite taste of this antique absinthe is incredibly smooth and delicious. The Jade Esprit Edouard absinthe is a fabulously faithful reproduction of the famous Edouard Pernod 72° absinthe that was highly popular during the Belle Époque.
Original Danish caraway-flavoured Taffel Akvavit - an institution in its home country since the 19th century.
Distilled at the Val-de-Travers according to traditional distilling methods. The herbs used to distill this Verte are all obtained from the Val-de-Travers region, which contribute to Absinthe Bizarre's characteristic and unique taste. A Verte from the Val-de-Travers is always something special.
This Absinthe is based on a recipe from 1889. It has a dark green color, the taste is flowerish with significant notes of green anise and hints of vanilla. It is distilled with wine alcohol, what gives this Absinthe a brandy like smell. Overall a pretty good French Absinthe.
The recipe for Absinthe Rhum Decollage was inspired by an academic study performed by Alice Peeters in 1976: “Le petit paysannat Martiniquais et son environnement végétal”, which described how farmers in Martinique used to soak various plants including grand wormwood in rum, rather like the tradition of 'Rhum Arrangé' in Guadeloupe, Reunion and Madagascar: rum infused with spices and fruit.
Wormwood-infused Rum is obtained through the maceration of grand wormwood and other plants in a high quality rum from Martinique, sugarcane amd wormwood distillates. The result is a slightly sweet rum with wonderful herbaceous notes. It is important to note that unlike absinthe, this rum does not contain anise. Additionally, the wormwood flavour is stronger than in traditional absinthe.
