Absinthe Jade Terminus Absinthe Oxygenee Review by Marc Thuillier

Jade Terminus Absinthe Oxygenee is the latest (re)creation from Ted Breaux, Jade Liqueurs. The process used is similar to the one used by the famous distillery Cusenier back in the glory days. Cusenier were using a hot oxygenation process to make their absinthe appear as “pure” as possible to their customers. How does this process impact the taste of such a fine handcrafted absinthe? Marc Thuillier has tasted this one from a 2017 batch for Absinthes.com. (more…)

Christmas with Absinthe – gift ideas and more

The Christmas season is one of the most beautiful times of year for me. The first snow falls, you meet your friends at the Christmas market and enjoy the first mulled wine together: where I live, in Freiburg, there is a wonderful traditional German Weihnachtsmarkt. If I’m lucky, when I get home I am greeted by the lovely smell of freshly made cookies, meaning my boyfriend has been baking for me.

The only stressful part is the search for the perfect Christmas presents for my loved ones.

To make your search a little bit easier, we put together a selection of Christmas gift ideas. We offer a wide range of gift sets with absinthe, high quality spirits, accessories and much more. If you’re looking for a special gift idea, then Absinthes.com is the right place for you.

Absinthe Jade Nouvelle-Orleans Review by Marc Thuillier

The Nouvelle-Orléans is thus an atypical absinthe which carry us to Louisiana, where it was born. Let’s see if Marc Thuillier is also carried away by this absinthe. (more…)

Absinthe Butterfly Review by Marc Thuillier

Every absintheur will eventually come across this absinthe sooner or later in their lives. Absinthe Butterfly is inspired by an American absinthe of the same name produced in the early 1900’s. A passionate absintheur from Boston, precisely where this absinthe was born, approached the talented distiller Claude-Alain Bugnon to make it reborn from its ashes. Absinthe Butterfly is quite atypical from what is usually produced by Claude-Alain, so let’s see what Marc Thuillier thinks about it…
