Jade Liqueurs’ Perique Tobacco Liqueur was released in 2006 following many months of careful development.
Louisiana Perique is the rarest and more precious tobacco in the entire world. 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.
In an effort to bring attention to this endangered tradition, Jade Liqueurs developed Perique liqueur to captivate one’s senses with the wonderful aroma of this native tobacco, but in a form that greatly diminishes the health concerns associated with tobacco use. Perique is entirely artisanal in its construction, and embodies the nuances of this ancient tobacco. Perique is best enjoyed in the same manner as one would a fine liqueur or brandy. Due to the difficulty in procuring this rare tobacco, Perique liqueur is available only in limited quantities.
