Jade Liqueurs

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 degree absinthe verte, which earned its status as one of the premier absinthes of the 19th century. Unfortunately, absinthe crafting at the Berger distillery came to a halt with the Swiss ban of 1910, and the distillery ceased all activities in Switzerland shortly thereafter.

Composition – French eau de vie pot distilled and infused with whole botanicals and rested for an average of 3 years before bottling

Appearance –  Strong shade of olive with a distinct amber tint

Taste – (From the International Wine & Spirits Competition)
Pale yellow/green. Fragrant nose with floral notes to start which are soon overtaken by full power of wormwood, fennel, anise and hyssop. The addition of the cold water brought a slow and steady forming, but complete louche and released another wave of aromatics similar to the first but in even greater volume. Great range of mountain herbs adds to the complexity. A great re-construction of the absinthe of history.Bold vintage flavor profile with powerfully distinct botanical notes and a long, clean finish.

Nouvelle-Orléans Absinthe®Supérieure

This exquisite absinthe represents the inspired work of native New Orleanian T. A. Breaux, and its heritage is rooted in the original absinthes that made the sazerac cocktail and absinthe frappé famous. Its unique distillation of stimulating herbes toniques is just what the Belle Époque chimistes prescribed for various subtropical ailments. The light, stimulating mouthfeel and delectable floral finish of Nouvelle-Orléans Absinthe®Supérieure present the connoisseur with a unique perfume and texture that disappeared along with the artisanal marques almost a century ago. We invite you to see why we truly consider Nouvelle-Orléans Absinthe® Supérieure to be L’esprit du Vieux Carré.
