Blanchette Absinthe From Jade Liqueurs

Blanchette Absinthe from Jade LiqueursA couple months ago we told you about the arrival of a couple Jade Absinthe bottles for review, and guess what...we haven't reviewed them yet. Sorry about that - we didn't have access to the bottles for a while, we wanted to get a real honest-to-goodness absinthe spoon, we couldn't find out Hannibal Lecter restraints, etc. This is our FYI that we will be reviewing them this month...over St. Patrick's Day, in fact. Yes, we know absinthe isn't Irish, but it's green, and there's no better day to manufacture an excuse to drink. Expect those reviews St. Patty's weekend - and expect the reviews to be written whilst we're in our cups.

To tide you over until that auspicious day, we have discovered a new absinthe created by Jade Liqueurs and the absinthe man Ted Breaux. It seems a bit less spendy than the others offered on the site (running 25 Pounds, or about $45, as compared to the others that are 55 Pounds, or closer to $95, according to our favorite currency converter) and though it's not cheap, it might be a good "training wheels" way to have your first meeting with the green fairy. They bottle it at 120 proof (60% ABV), which is nothing to sneeze at.

"Blanchette", the original absinthe produced by Distillerie Combier (Saumur, France) circa 1900. Blanchette is a Swiss-style, clear absinthe that yields a distinct aroma and flavor of anise and grande wormwood, with a background of alpine herbs. Like our other Jade absinthes, Blanchette is crafted entirely by hand in the antique copper absinthe stills in the Combier distillery.
