The History of Jade Liqueurs®
Jade Liqueurs® was founded in 2000 by T.A. Breaux, a professional scientist who has dedicated almost two decades of research toward resolving the mysteries and myths associated with absinthe. A relentless quest for the unadulterated truth has taken him across the globe in search of obscure, overlooked, and forgotten information that documents this often maligned subject. Jade Liqueurs® was established for the sole purpose of offering the connoisseur the opportunity to experience unequivocal recreations of the classic absinthes that fueled the creative fires of the Belle Époque. Whereas the recent absinthe renaissance has spawned a rash of inferior, industrially prepared, chemically dyed 'absinthes' that are commonly sold to unsuspecting consumers at a considerable profit, the absinthes crafted by Jade Liqueurs deliver historical accuracy and handcrafted authenticity down to unimaginably minute details.
The absinthes recreated by Jade Liqueurs® were made possible only through the discovery and acquisition of immaculately preserved bottles of the most famous original absinthes of the 19th century. Armed with an education and experience in applied analytical sciences, Breaux has worked in conjunction with other accomplished scientific minds in perfecting the sophisticated techniques needed to unlock the many secrets of the original liquor. Some of this research has been published in peer reviewed scientific journals, and includes objectve insights into mysterious topics, such as the content of vintage absinthe and facts about thujone.
Breaux's research has been recognized in books, magazines, newspapers, television, and filmed documentaries, and his educated insight is frequently sought by writers, researchers, and historians. A native of New Orleans, Louisiana, Breaux has made significant content and editorial contributions to fine publications such as "Absinthe, Sip of Seduction: A Contemporary Guide" (Corvus Publishing - ISBN: 1933108215) and "Absinthe, A Myth Always Green" (L'Esprit Frappeur - ISBN: 2844052002). Breaux's reputation for uncovering the facts is surpassed only by his unceasing passion for recreating history through the fine art of absinthe crafting.
Through these ongoing efforts, Jade Liqueurs® remains established as a marque of uncompromised artisanship and a cornerstone of authenticity and quality.
