Product information "Absinthe L'Entêté"
Franck Choisne (owner of the Combier distillery): L’Entete is based on my own recipe that I adapted from a historic recipe and my personal idea about a very tasty and typical Absinthe.

My father and I are cultivating the grand wormwood on our own territory in the Loire valley. The interesting part of the story is however that the original plant origins from another part of my family that lives in Mieges – the French Jura.

The name “L’Entete” (stubborn) reflects my personal involvement changing a French law from 1988 that restricted the use of Fennel in Absinthe. Changing this particular law allowed it authentically reproducing historic Absinthe in France. In a second step I took part in removing another discriminating law that prohibited the use of the term “Absinthe”. I’m proud having been directly involved in these important changes.

Combier
At the age of 25, Jean Baptiste Combier married Josephine-Uranie Destre and founded the Combier distillery in Saumur with his brother Claude. He himself opened the Confiserie Combier-Destre. A still was installed in the back room of the confectionery, on which the liqueurs for the sweets were distilled. In February 1847, Jean Baptiste Combier left the Confiserie to Leon Ponshuret, but reserved the right to continue burning there. In January 1848 the Combier-Destre's bought an area in the rue Beaurepaire. New buildings were built and new kilns purchased. The products were sold from a warehouse in Paris and all over the world on catalog request. The most famous products of the house were the Curacao Triple Sec and the elixir Raspail - a panacea that the physician Francois Raspeil invented in 1854. In 1863 this liqueur was renamed Elixir Combier. The couple Combier-Destre had 3 children: Anne-Uranie, Jean-Baptiste James and Leonie Berthe. James was sent to Paris at 19 to learn the trade of a liquorist. He then traveled through France, England, Italy, Greece, Algeria, Egypt... On January 15, 1866 the company was renamed Combier pere et Fils. In 1871 the company founder died and the junior gave the company a new direction: a warehouse was opened in Marseille, which took over the export business. On June 3, 1899, Combier registered the absinthe brand "Blanchette". In 1904 the company was converted into a limited partnership and was renamed Combier & Cie. From 1915 to 1927, the company produced an "Anis Combier" that complied with the laws of the time.
Today, the distillery is owned by Franck Choisne, who continues the Combier distillery to the old successes with a lot of commitment and innovation. 

Jade Absinthe
While searching for a suitable distillery, the American came across Ted Breaux on Combier. Since Combier has old Pernod distilleries, it was the ideal distillery right away to reproduce absinthe from the 19th century based on food chemical studies. In 2004, Nouvelle Orleans was born, the first in a whole series of excellent products.
