La Bleue is meant?

I wonder if there was a blue absinthe in the old days. The reason I ask is that I remember reading that there was a form of blue dye used in the post-distillation colouring process. Generally absinthe is green (verte) or white (la bleue).

What blue dye? There is one absinthe in Italy that is really blue but I thought it was a modern thing.

Saw blue absinthe in mexico, apparently from chech republic. The color looked way too much like some horrible solution the dentist would disguise flouride in, so I bought a different (green) brand.
