Absinthe Jade Nouvelle-Orléans is the only absinthe from the Jade line which is not a reproduction of a pre-ban absinthe.

Absinthe La Valdetra Verte Tasting Notes by Miriam

Absinthe La Valdetra Verte is something fairly rare: There aren’t many green absinthes distilled in Switzerland.

Absinthe Angélique Verte Suisse tasting notes by Marc Thuillier

Angéliquebuy_absinthe_angelique_online is the “green” big sister of the Clandestine from Claude-Alain Bugnon (68% versus 53%). Produced in the Artemisia distillery in the Val-de-Travers, its recipe includes 12 different herbs, with of course, as the name itself indicates: angelica (Angélique in French).
