During the mid-19th century absinthes popularity travelled from France to French speaking Nouvelle-Orléans (New Orleans). Crescent city resident and absinthe expert, Ted Breaux worked with French distillers Combier to create this absinthe designed to mimic those of absinthe’s boom period.

Jade absinthes are made at Distillerie Combier using original 1,150 litre copper bain marie alembics built in the 1870s and acquired from one of the original absinthe distilleries in Pontarlier, France around a hundred years ago. Jade absinthes are made without the addition of sugar, flavourings, non-traditional herbs, or chemical dyes, their colour derived solely from the infusion of herbs.
