Traditional Absinthe
The Kurt Russell of absinthes

Beautiful peridot color pre-louche. It turns a thick olive color when water is added -- each drop of water sends white-ish plumes down into the absinthe, like the fog on...

The most purely "herbal" absinthe I've tasted

Although this absinthe is listed under "retired brands," I purchased mine in November 2016 -- it's being sold in the tall, slim bottles. The color pre-louche is...

Traditional Absinthe
The most austere of the Jades

Nice and clear, somewhere between golden-yellow and peridot. The louche looks thick and milky -- every drop of water releases a miniature bloom upon breaking the surface of the absinthe....

Traditional Absinthe
My favorite of the Jades

A natural clear forest-green with hints of yellow. The louche is thick and "milky" but not one-dimensional at all, with blue highlights on the rim. The aroma...

Traditional Absinthe
Unmistakably high quality

Pre-louche, this is a beautiful delicate shade of lime-green peridot. It takes on a soapstone-like color as water is added. This is a unique absinthe, with darker-toned...

Traditional Absinthe

Pre-louche, the absinthe is a transparent light green, leaning toward golden-brown. The louche is thick and milky, with transparency near the edges at a 1/4 absinthe-water ratio. ...
