Asia and Absinthe

Recommended Posts

Although star anise is native to China I have never heard of any anise-based liqueur, either. And wormwood does not seem to be so much popular as it is in Europe. On the other hand, angelica root is "the Emperor of herbs" to the Chinese, and we must admit their traditions and knowledge are really advanced in that matters. Chapeaux bas!

"He was all set to start production in Thailand on his own line of absinthe, under the name Jade Liqueurs, although he said things temporarily have been put on hold.

He did not elaborate."

"With a manufacturing facility in Thailand ready to roll and the possibility of a distillery in France on the horizon, Jade Liqueurs' absinthe appears close to becoming a reality."

"Nouvelle Orleans (prototype)

USA (distilled in Thailand), 68% alc. vol. (136 proof), sample"

 

 

Sort of puts a new spin on the Jade name.

Just returned from a semester abroad in Japan, and am happy to report that in the Tokyo area there are stores the carry a number of brands, with the "best" being Kübler 53 and Jade VS and Eddy. Though you do need to find the right store(s)... I only found one in Tokyo that stocked the Jades. Absinthe isn't overly popular there, but there is a Tokyo absinthe club, and absinthe tasting events are held.
