The long awaited final chapter of Jade liqueurs' absinthe portfolio.

The development of Jade Terminus Absinthe Oxygenee took several years: historical sleuthing, botanical research and patience were all necessary to produce this high quality absinthe.

Jade Terminus is an homage to one of the best absinthes of the Belle Epoque: Cusenier Oxygenée. The Cusenier distillery created this absinthe in reponse to claims that absinthe was dangerous, and claimed that their proprietary oxygenation process left the absinthe free of any potentially deleterious properties. We now know that absinthe is only as harmful as any other alcoholic drink, however this unique oxygenation process lent a unique character to the absinthe, so to make Jade Terminus Oxygenee Ted Breaux decided to use a hot oxygenation process closely mirroring the original technique.

This handcrafted absinthe is distilled by T.A. Breaux, according to traditional french methods, and aged fully for several years. Absinthe alembics from the 19th century have been used for its destillation in the historical Combier distillery. This absinthe is made of a eau-de-vie base spirit, unusual Alpine varieties of wormwood, and other European herbs. No sugar or artificial colours are in the recipe. This absinthe has rested for an average of 3 years before bottling.

This absinthe represents the most powerful expression of the spirit in the Jade portfolio!

Creamy, with potent aromatics and a lengthy, stimulating aftertaste, recalling the medicinal origins of the spirit.

1834 :

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).

My second most favorite of the Jade absinthes, after the 1901. The Terminus has a unique vegetal quality, it's complex and delicious. Noticeably bitter, but not overly so. Herbaceous rather than sweet. The mouthfeel is excellent under minimal dilution, creamier than the other Jade products, but not as creamy as the Sade.

A beautiful absinthe. Yet, I prefer 1901. More of an anise flavor with 1901.
But this jade production is amazing. Sting wormwood. Very floral wormwood. Not as heavy as 1901 or Edoward in the spice area. But a delicious absinthe I can easily imagine picking up at a Shoppe wrapped in paper like they used to.... cheers to Jade. And a special thanks to the staff at absinthes.com

My first Absinthe so I am unexperienced but as soon as I tasted it I fell in love! Guys and girls at Absinthes.com are exceptional! I mailed some questions and received a prompt reply. Service, purchase and delivery absolutely impeccable. I will surely buy again.

Amante del jade v.s. 1898 questo assenzio è l 'unico della gamma Jade che mi abbia colpito come il V.S. 1898

The most complex of all the Jades I have ever enjoyed. Has that wormwood bite but also this “spicyness” and richness that is really hard to describe. The color is a solid peridot with gold and when louched gives way to opalescent green and gold. The bouquet fills the room and the taste lingers on the tongue like a long lost love. Absolutely magical this expression is, and if this is to be the final then hats off!

Deceivably light and a pleasure to drink. Sweet, even without the sugar.

My wife and I purchased this after absolutely loving both the Jade V.S. 1898 and Jade Esprit Edouard. We prepare with an auto see-saw dripper and 1 sugar. The louche was quick and thick, with a full and creamy mouth-feel. Strong herbal front with lingering aftertaste. We both lean towards stronger anise flavored absinthes, and unlike other reviews I read here we both found this one to be very herbaceous but quite light on the anise flavor. I began to enjoy it more and more as flavors developed over time while the glass sat. Not my favorite Jade due to my anise tilt but amazing nonetheless if I don't compare to the others. 4 stars from me ONLY because of my personal preference for stronger anise flavor.

Another hit from Jade! Another one of the best I've had, and like the 1901 faithful to the pre-ban stuff. Ted Breau knows his chemistry!
