Jade 1901 is the second absinthe created by American absinthe expert, Ted Breaux and Combier to replicate a sample of 19th century. Combier uses two 1,100 litre copper alembics dating from 1870 and purchased from an absinthe distiller in Pontarlier in the early 1900s.
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.
