The History and Mystery of Absinthe with the legendary T.A.Breaux, including a tasting of the Sip Or Mix Absinthe Portfolio, followed by a Q. & A.

A research scientist, Absinthe Historian & Distiller, Ted Breaux is also famous the world over for being at the forefront of the recent absinthe renaissance. It was through his and a colleague's efforts that the Absinthe Ban in the USA was lifted after 95 years in 2007. He will guide us through the complexities and misunderstandings of this much maligned spirit. This is coupled with a tasting provided by Sip or Mix of the Jade Liqueurs range of absinthes.

We will also have Ted Breaux's Jade Liqueurs Perique Tobacco Liqueur & Coeur de Jade on tasting.

Each absinthe will be paired with a cheese provided by The Deli at 80.  A welcome cocktail will be provided by the team at Peony.
