It is the replica of an ancient absinthe, beautifully combining the fruity flavours of fennel to those of a powerful Grand Wormwood. A success.

IT was awarded the “Cuillère d'Or” at the 2006 Absinthiades in Pontarlier, France, as well as the silver medal at the “International Wine & Spirits Competition” the same year.

La Blanchette was produced by Combiers between 1899 and 1915. Today it is Ted Breaux who produces it in an antique still true to the original recipe.

A clear French absinthe worthy of the greatest Swiss ones.

Jade Liqueurs & Combier, France

1834 :

Jean-Baptiste Combier, 25, opens the Combier-Destre candy store in Saumur together with his brother Claude. Thanks to an alembic installed in the back shop, he distils some liqueurs to fill his candies and chocolates with.

1848 :

J ean-Baptiste buys more alembics and establishes the Combier distillery on the rue Beaurepaire, where it still is located today. This is the starting point of a booming business, Combier now sells its liqueurs all over the world.

1861 :

Jean-Baptiste Combier's son James, only 19 years old, learns the art of distillation before traveling to England, Algeria, Italy, Greece and Egypt, from where he brings new essences and herbs for Combier Liqueurs.

Absinthe distillation at Combier :

Combier owns its own fields of 2 wormwood cultivars, harvested by hand and traditionally dried in an attic. There are 10 alembics from the 19th century in the distilling room, including 8 from Egrot (the famous maker of Pernod Fils alembics at the time).

The bottle was delicious, came in time for Christmas, and included Gummy Worms from Germany. I'll definitely be placing more orders. This was delicious and light, with a powerful kick.

Delightful and very refreshing. For me it has a delicious floral finish.

Cool refined refreshing flavours. An enjoyable drink. I'm not an experienced Absetheur, but this was a significant step up from the Polish Absinthe available at the supermarket.

I got this as a free sample when I ordered the Bastille Day special.It is a very subtle;almost feminine style of absinthe.For those who like strong flavors or bitterness this is not for you.This is a pleasant,gentle drink & would make a good present for an absintheur without spending too much money.I would drink it again,but I'm saving my money for the Edouard & PF's!

This absinthe is unreal. I snagged this along with the Jade line, and, in all honesty, this one is my favorite of the 5 (I guess I'm more of a blanche fan). The aging of Breaux's products allows for all of the flavours to blend together in such a harmonious fashion. The balance achieved in this absinthe in sublime, everything is where it needs to be. Just enough anise, a great fennel complement, and a strong wormwood base to it. But the slight yellow color is part of the magic. I'm pretty such this absinthe is aged in an oak (or similar wood) barrel. The wood gives it that slight yellow tinge while imbuing it with a hint of vanilla in the nose and the finish. It's the perfect afterthought to round out this absinthe. Oh, and the louche is beautifully thick with a great separation.

Haven't tasted it yet, but didn't want to ruin it's rating. I have a question for Alessandro Rovelli. Posted 31/08/2010 - or anyone else who knows for sure.

"Blanche French Absinthes show a light hint of pale yellow colour."

Why do Blanche French Absinthes show colour?
Which other Blanche French Absinthes show colour?
Approximately what % of Blanche French Absinthes show colour?

Thanks Muchness to anyone who has the knowledge, time and willingness to answer.

Absinthe Blanchette is one of my Vafourite Absinthe ever! Produced in the Combier
distillery by T. A. Breaux (the same of Jade Absinthes).
Blanchette comes from the genius of Breaux and the original Combier's recipe; infact, this absinthe was produced by Combier at the ending of Belle Epoque in the same pot still uset today. So well as you can see, this typology of Absinthe shows a difference in the colouration, in fact ther's no colouration! This Absinthes called "Blanche" are the most poupular in the Val-De-Travers region of Switzerland and they're completely transparent, but Blanche French Absinthes show a light hint of pale yellow colour.
An incredible ancient French Absinthe in a Swiss way.
