The Last Tuesday Society's Absinthe Tasting Menu Includes:

La Maison Fontaine Blanche, 56%
La Maison Fontaine Blanche, the World’s most awarded blanche absinthe, is masterfully refined using an array of natural herbs including our world-renowned Pontarlier-grown Grande Absinthe.

Sweet and refreshing taste characterised by rich floral notes with hints of lemon and mint, Fontaine Blanche is a classic absinthe with a contemporary twist.

--------------------

Combier L'Entente Absinthe, 62% abv
The historic Combier distillery enjoys the unique privilege of housing two original 1,150L copper bain marie alembics that were acquired a century ago from what was perhaps the most famous original absinthe distillery in Pontarlier, France and built entirely by hand circa 1870s. 

--------------------

Jade VS 1898 Absinthe Verte, 65%
Jade's VS1898 Absinthe recalls a century-old tradition of fine Swiss style absinthes, enabling the connoisseur to savour a journey to the year 1898.
This fine Swiss absinthe was almost lost forever if it had not been for the resurfacing of original, unopened bottles, which Jade Liqueurs® was able to secure for preservation. Using proprietary analytical techniques, Jade Liqueurs has painstakingly resurrected this beautiful spirit from extinction through reverse engineering.

--------------------

Jade 1901 Absinthe, 68% abv
Jade 1901® Absinthe Supérieure was recreated as a tribute to a widely studied pre-ban absinthe, as it appeared circa 1901. During the heyday of its existence, the original brand was an object of worldwide export, and was widely considered as a top-tier example of the category. 
Jade 1901® Absinthe Supérieure is a classic vintage-style absinthe, balanced and crisp, with a stimulating herbal aroma and a smooth, lingering aftertaste that recalls the splendor of the Parisian cafés during the Belle Époque

--------------------

Nouvelle-Orléans Absinthe Supérieure, 68% abv
As the popularity of absinthe swept through France during the mid 19th century, la fée verte began making her way over to the 'Paris' of the New World, La Nouvelle-Orléans (New Orleans). 
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. 

--------------------

Esprit Edouard Absinthe Supérieure, 72% abv
The story of Esprit Edouard Absinthe Supérieure is rooted in the late 19th century, at the time when one of the world's most prestigious absinthe distilleries was at the zenith of its existence. At the time of the ban, this distillery had earned the distinction as one of the largest absinthe producers, and was considered by many absinthe connoisseurs to be one of the finest marques.
Almost a century later, perfectly preserved bottles of this pre-ban absinthe have yielded the secrets of this famed producer, and remain an indelible part of Jade's antique collection. The exquisite taste of this antique absinthe is incredibly smooth and delicious.
