By 1897, the house of Edouard Pernod boasted a reputation for crafting some of the best absinthe the world has ever known. At the time of the ban (in 1915 in France), Edouard Pernod had become the 3rd largest absinthe distiller in France. The Edouard Pernod label was considered by many absinthe connoisseurs to be one of the finest marques, certainly on par with the famed Pernod Fils, A. Junod and Fritz Duval labels.
Almost a century later, bottles of perfectly preserved Edouard Pernod absinthe have yielded the secrets of this famed producer. The exquisite taste of this antique absinthe is incredibly smooth and delicious.
The Jade L'Esprit d'Edouard absinthe is a fabulously faithful reproduction of the famous Edouard Pernod 72° absinthe that was highly popular during the Belle Époque. It is absolutely correct to the original, from its delicate tint, to its refined texture and delightfully aromatic finish.
We invite you to experience the unrivalled quality, tradition, and mystique that only Jade L'Esprit d'Edouard absinthe can deliver.
