Jade Liqueurs was founded by T.A. Breaux, a professional scientist who has dedicated over a decade of research toward resolving the mysteries and myths associated with absinthe. His 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 in 2000 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. The absinthes crafted by Jade Liqueurs are historically accurate and authentic down to unimaginably minute details.
The absinthes recreated by Jade Liqueurs are made possible only because T. A. Breaux and his associates possess immaculately preserved bottles of the most famous original absinthes of the 19th century. Armed with an education and experience in applied analytical sciences, Mr. 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. His 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 Nouvelle-OrlÉans, Louisiana, Mr. Breaux has made significant content and editorial contributions to fine publications such as "Absinthe, Sip of Seduction: A Contemporary Guide" (Corvus Publishing - ISBN: 0972577610) and "Absinthe, A Myth Always Green" (L'Esprit Frappeur - ISBN : 2844052002). Likewise, he is currently in the process of writing additional texts on the subject. Mr. 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 the continuing efforts of T. A. Breaux and his associates, Jade Liqueurs will remain established as a marque of uncompromised artisanship and the unmatched leader in authenticity and quality.
