After some years of silence, Ted Breaux, the man behind the Jade Absinthe portfolio, has developed a new Absinthe: Absinthe Terminus Oxygénée is the final release in the Jade Absinthe portfolio of historically accurate Absinthes. It is a very special Absinthe, as it plays homage to one of the most interesting Absinthes of the Belle Époque era: Absinthe Oxygénée. This brand separated itself from its peers by a specialized hot oxygenation production process. This treatment was advertised as being “Hygiénique”, because drinking a glass of this Absinthe would not extract oxygen from the blood but rather add oxygen to it, which would have a healing effect on the nerve system, circulation and lungs… In a way, this new prodution method was a reaction to several scientists and scholars proclaiming that alcohol, and absinthe above all – the scapegoat of the French wine industry – was very dangerous to consumers’ health. Besides being good for your health, this claim was actually also used for advertisement “C´est ma santé” (see picture below) the oxygenation process also lets the Absinthe age very quickly. You can compare it with decanting a wine, allowing oxygen to mix with the molecules of the spirit changing its taste and aroma. The result is a very smooth Absinthe without any alcoholic sharpness. The original brand was the subject of widespread publicity, sold at a premium, and was exported to various ports around the globe. Nevertheless, Cusenier was not the only producer of an oxygenated Absinthe. Premier Fils, another French Absinthe manufacturer also offered an Absinthe Oxygéneé (check our photo album). …Continue reading “Absinthe Jade Terminus Oxygénée is released”

Dear Absintheurs! We hope you have had a good summer with some relaxing chill-out times! We spent some days in Middle America and found this straight-forward advertisement for a local green spirit. We immediately had to think of the Green Fairy :-)! Green is as well our Absinthe of the Month: Strong68 is strong, meaning that it is distilled with an extra portion of wormwood. That´s why many of our customers love it. It is actually our bestselling Absinthe. Strong68 is distilled in France, 100% naturally colored and its taste traditionally herbal with a slightly bitter note. That´s why we recommend to drink Strong68 with one sugar cube. If you are looking for a powerful Absinthe full of inspiration, then Strong68 should be your pick! Interested in more news…? You can read the complete newsletter here: ALANDIA Absinthe Newsletter.
