Lucid broke new ground in the USA, being the first absinthe available for almost a century.

T.A. Breaux worked at the Combier Distillery in the Loire Valley, with their Belle Epoque era stills, pure spirit and traditional absinthe plants to make this absinthe with classic flavours.

Lucid is distilled exclusively from natural ingredients, and coloured the way it was done a hundred years ago. The only modern thing about this absinthe is the unique bottle with its striking cat's eyes.

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).

I am very pleased with this absinthe, I was surprised how fast it was delivered and the taste is really nice. My favourite store already!!!

2.5 to 3 Star- This is the drink that drove me to find on-line distributors of REALLY good Absinthes. This mediocre blend has a peppery finish & as the 1st Absinthe to be offered in the US after the ban lifted- it was outrageously over-priced. I'd suggest skipping this one unless you can get it for under $50 a bottle.

The best way to describe this Verte is a Novice mans drink. Flavor notes are very good as well as the louche. Color is a very light grass green. Would prefer a darker color but we are still all natural here. All and all this is a good absinthe that I have enjoyed several times. But keep in mind once other more complex and robust Verte's are discovered (assuming they are also available) you will quickly drop this one. I can easily say that this bottle got me deeper into the Absinthe scene and sucessfully filled its role as a gateway absinthe, but I am with the heavy hitters now.
