Description of the products

Achieved by Ted Breaux!


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.

Colour: Light peridot with a touch of yellow, clear and natural.

Louche: Slowly builds with great oils trails and nice layering.

Aroma: Lovely and complex overtone of anise and spices.

Taste: Wonderfully balanced, round and smooth, with just enough spiciness to make it really unique. Again, a top-quality green anise and a great balance that only the finest beverages achieve.

Finish: Confectioner's sugar and liquorice on the finish, nice and lingering, and a bit mouth-numbing. Very fresh.

Discover the Jade VS 1898 gift set here! It's the perfect gift for your friends and family.
Especially commissioned by Absinthes.com, the Bubble Reservoir Absinthe Glass is a delight to behold. We are incredibly proud how it has turned out, after almost a year of prototypes and improvements. The Bubble Reservoir Glass was directly inspired by a glass in the collection of David Nathan Maister, renowned absinthe historian. This type of glass was relatively rare, even when it was most widely available in the 1880s and 1890s.
The bubble reservoir serves as a dose, to accurately pour the right amount of absinthe without needing a measure. Chilled water is then added as usual, usually three to five parts. A pleasing weight in the hand, without being overly hefty. These glasses are hand made (blown by mouth) by the makers in Europe. The artisan process captures some tiny bubbles and imperfections in the glass, making for a seriously beautiful effect.

The bubble glass in use, Pernod Fils Tarragona vintage 1950s absinthe, and our exclusive reproduction vintage absinthe carafe.

Just a beautiful set! A well made wooden box.
The bubble glass is very uniqe, and to watch the louche slowly build and mix in the bubble is extremely satisfying. You can clearly see that it is a hand made glass, wich is nice, although it is a bit tall and thick.
The Jade VS 1898 is a very good absinthe! Definitely one of the best, and comes close to my personal favorite, the 1901. It´s "only" 65% abv, so you don't need that much water, wich gives more taste without it getting too strong on the alcohol. No sugar needed here!
Overall this is a perfect gift for an absinthe lover, or to get someone started.
