This was the first Jade Absinthe that was launched by Ted Breaux. It is still an all time favorite. Jade Absinthe Nouvelle-Orléans offers an unique perfume and texture. Several medicinal plants and flowers, including wormwood, are macerated in a wine-based alcohol and then distilled in 100 year old alambics. Its light green color comes from a second infusion of plants in the resulting distillate. The aromas are bright yet complex and savory; it is a true apéritif, one that stimulates the appetite while cleansing and refreshing the palate with its crisp, rich taste. The finish is long and fresh, with its attractive floral components lingering long after the last sip.
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.
