70cl Bottle £64.02 In Stock
Description: As the popularity of absinthe swept through France during the mid 19th century, the green fairy began making her way over to the 'Paris' of the New World, Nouvelle-Orleans (New Orleans). French-speaking travellers and immigrants alike carried their passion for absinthe with them to this vibrant port city, and before long, French apothecary Antoine Peychaud was doling out 'healthy' absinthe cocktails from his Royal St. shop. The popularity of absinthe surged in French-speaking Louisiana, and when Henri Degas and Oscar Wilde spent time in New Orleans in the latter part of the 1800s, they had no trouble finding imported French and Swiss absinthes among other familiar comforts. By the advent of the 20th century, cafes like the famous Old Absinthe House were making a name for themselves by cooling the humid summers with Sazeracs, absinthe frappes, and even the occasional absinthe creme de glace. Unfortunately, it all came to a halt with the U.S. ban on absinthe in 1912... or did it?
This exquisite absinthe represents the inspired work of native New Orleanian T. A. Breaux, and its heritage is rooted in the original absinthes that made the Sazerac cocktail and absinthe frappe famous. Its unique distillation of stimulating herbes toniques is just what the Belle epoque chimistes prescribed for various subtropical ailments. The light, stimulating mouthfeel and delectable floral finish of Nouvelle-Orleans Absinthe Superieure present the connoisseur with a unique perfume and texture that disappeared along with the artisanal marques almost a century ago.
We invite you to see why we truly consider Nouvelle-Orleans Absinthe Superieure to be "L'esprit du Vieux Carre".

Jade Liqueurs was founded in 2000 by T.A. Breaux, a professional scientist who has dedicated over 16 years of research toward resolving the mysteries and myths associated with absinthe. A relentless quest for the unadulterated truth has taken him across the globe in search of obscure, overlooked, and forgotten information that documents this often maligned subject. Jade Liqueurs was established for the sole purpose of offering the connoisseur the opportunity to experience unequivocal recreations of the classic absinthes that fueled the creative fires of the Belle Epoque. Whereas the recent absinthe renaissance has spawned a rash of inferior, industrially prepared, chemically dyed 'absinthes' that are commonly sold to unsuspecting consumers at a considerable profit, the absinthes crafted by Jade Liqueurs deliver historical accuracy and handcrafted authenticity down to unimaginably minute details.
