Description

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 in the gallery) 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.

For free: This month you receive one Absinthe grille for free. It is a nice alternative to an Absinthe spoon. Like a spoon you place it on the glass and put a sugar cube on top. Through the holes the sugar and water drips into your glass of Absinthe. This grille has an outstanding trinity design which gives perfect stability when placed on the Absinthe glass. It is made of high quality stainless steel and the finishing polish gives the grille a brilliant shine. Overall we can highly recommend this accessory as it adds some variety to the Absinthe ritual.

 

Tasting notes of Absinthe Jade Terminus Oxygénée:

Jade Terminus Oxygénée Absinthe Supérieure is artisanally distilled from the same botanicals as the original. The taste is herbal, slightly reminding of medicine due to a healthy dose of a particularly interesting species of wormwood harvested from the foothills of the Alps. True to the original, the final product is also subjected to a hot oxygenation process that closely mirrors the original technique. On the tongue, the Absinthe is creamy, features lovely aromatics and a lengthy, stimulating herbal aftertaste. Like all the Jade Absinthes, Terminus Oxygénée is carefully distilled by T. A. Breaux, using the original 19th century Absinthe alembics in the historical Combier distillery. Terminus Oxygénée Absinthe represents the most sophisticated expression of the spirits in the Jade portfolio.

 

How to drink Absinthe Jade Terminus Oxygenee:

Terminus Oxgénée is a smooth Absinthe with a lovely herbal complexity. We recommend a ratio of 1 part Absinthe to 2-3 parts ice-cold water. One sugar cube can be added to support the aromatic notes, but it is not really necessary. In the following video you can see the traditional method of drinking Absinthe.

Just fantastic
Loved the coasters, green is so my color too!
The Strong68 is lovely. The flavor is intense but in a good way. For a person who's only ever had Lucid before... Well, this was just brilliant.
