The Jade V.S. 1898 absinthe, a replica of the historical C.F. Berger, is an absinthe for connoisseurs.

The distillery of C. F. Berger was founded in Couvet, in the canton of Neufchâtel, Switzerland in 1823. The Berger distillery crafted several Swiss style absinthes, the most famous of these being the C. F. Berger 65º absinthe verte, which earned its status as one of the premier absinthes of the 19th century. Unfortunately, the C. F. Berger distillery came to a halt with the Swiss ban of 1910, and the distillery ceased all activities in Switzerland shortly after.

This fine Swiss absinthe was almost lost forever if it had not been for the resurfacing of original, unopened bottles, which Jade Liqueurs was able to secure for preservation. Using proprietary analytical techniques, Jade Liqueurs has resurrected this beautiful liquor from extinction.

It is an accurate recreation of the C. F. Berger absinthe and is identical to the original down to incredibly minute details. It is crafted entirely by hand using select botanicals from the original regions, and is carefully distilled in absinthe sills that were obtained directly from Pernod Fils in the early 20th century.

The Jade VS 1898 absinthe recalls a century-old tradition of fine Swiss style absinthes, and enables connoisseurs to savour a journey into history.

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).

It's hard to say which Jade is my favorite, but this one really caters to my tastes. It is not overly floral like some vertes, but it has more distinct herbal qualities that balance the wormwood, anise, and other plants beautifully. A must try. I'm definitely buying this one again.

The aroma, louche, creaminess, flavour, effect and experience live up to all that you have heard about this absinthe.
Expensive but worth every last cent.
