Created by Ted Breaux, the man behind Lucid Absinthe, Jade Absinthe and Jade Liqueurs, Perique Tobacco Liqueur was launched in 2006. The name is a reference to Perique, a type of tobacco from Saint James Parish, Louisiana, USA which is known for its strong fruity aroma.
A farmer named Pierre Chenet is credited with first turning tobacco originally cultivated by the Choctaw and Chickasaw tribes in the 18th century into what is now known as Perique in 1824 by the use of pressure-fermentation.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 15/09/2012
Clear pale golden, with some black particles in suspension.
Clean horse stables, old leather saddles in a tack room with Lady Grey tea, fresh tobacco leaf and lemon drizzle cake.
Slightly sweet, old leather briefcase, tobacco and stewed tannic lemon tea with faint soapy note and anise.
Bitter stewed tea, the last knockings of a fat cigar and liquorice. Fades with stewed sweet black tea flavours.
