Ted Breaux

T.A. “Ted” Breaux is a professional scientist who has dedicated more than twenty years of research toward resolving the scientific and historical mysteries associated with absinthe. His quest for the unadulterated truth has taken him across the globe in search of obscure, overlooked, and forgotten information circling this often maligned subject. 

Armed with a background in analytical science, Ted applied sophisticated techniques for the purpose of accurately reconstructing the controversial liquor, which resulted in the creation of his personal “Jade Liqueurs” brand. Additionally, Breaux created the LUCID brand of absinthe for Hood River Distillers, which was the first genuine absinthe to be approved for distribution within the U.S. since 1912. 

Ted’s research has been recognized in books, magazines, newspapers, television, and filmed documentaries; and his educated insight is frequently sought by writers, researchers, and historians. A native of New Orleans, Ted has made significant content and editorial contributions to relevant books including Absinthe, Sip of Seduction: A Contemporary Guide and Absinthe and A Myth Always Green, which both serve as primers into the world of absinthe. His reputation for being a staunch promoter of truth and accuracy in all matters related to absinthe is surpassed only by his unceasing passion for recreating history through the fine art of absinthe crafting.
