Jade Perique Liqueur de Tabac is an alcoholic beverage made from the strong Louisiana perique tobacco, which is the rarest in the entire world. Distiller and scientist T.A. Breaux of Jade Liqueurs has been making this tobacco liqueur at the Combier Distillery in Samur, France since 2006.
Early French settlers learned the secrets of Perique cultivation from the native peoples, and while their descendents have continued the tradition for centuries, very little Perique exists today. The unique terroir of the Mississippi River gives Perique the intense spices and aromas that contribute to the delicate balance of this fine liqueur.
