La Fée Parisienne is a classic Absinthe Supérieure, distilled using 100% natural ingredients, in collaboration with Marie-Claude Delahaye, founder and curator of the French Absinthe Museum.

This is a classic Verte (green) Absinthe Supérieure

All-natural ingredients and colour (macerated herbs), distilled in France. Central ingredient being Grand Absinthe (Artemisia absinthium) and having a classic strength of 68%abv.

La Fée is distilled using three artemisia plants at its heart: Grand (Artemisia absinthium) & Petit Absinthe (Artemisia pontica) and Genepi (Genepi Artemisia), Green and Star Anise, Fennel, Hyssop and Coriander.

The Fine Art of Distilling & Blending The nine botanicals of La Fée Parisienne are individually distilled (as opposed to a single distillation of all the ingredients together). These distillates are then carefully blended by the master distiller according to the French Absinthe Museum approved recipe.

This method is much more labour intensive and time consuming than a single distillation, but the extra effort allows our Absinthe Supérieure to be replicated time and time

Distilling in more detail

Both techniques (blending separate distillations and single distillation) were employed pre 1915 in France. The single distillation process (all ingredients distilled together in alcohol) will naturally vary from batch to batch – caused by subtle differences in the condition of the ingredients (herbs being dried at different temperatures, humidity levels, terroir, seasonal changes during growing etc).

Our experience shows the process of multiple distillations of separate herbs and spices gives us more control over the finished Absinthe. Enabling better consistency and quality, which is crucial when your spirits are so delicately balanced. A mere fraction of a change in one ingredient, caused by a natural variation, can upset the final balance of the spirit.

Old stills used to this day for La Fée Blanche and Parisienne (Cherry Rocher Distillery since 1705)

Natural Green Verte

The classic style of absinthe during the Belle Époque: The natural colour is the final stage with additional macerated herbs which extracts both chlorophyll (natural green) and further flavour.

Verification of a true Absinthe Supérieure

There is one last stage before we are ready to bottle: A sample is couriered to Marie-Claude Delahaye (in Paris) and George Rowley, who test each batch, using their extensive experience of tasting Absinthe and their knowledge of the original master recipe.
This starts with colour (soft green with a hint of yellow), then adding water to establish the depth of louche. Then taste and aroma of the botanicals that are released by the drop in abv through dilution to drinking strength (12% to 16%abv). In the event any aspect is not to our exacting standards, the distillery is advised of any fine-tuning required, a rare event as our experience has grown since our returning the distilling of traditional absinthe to France over a decade ago (May 2000).

La Fée is the only Brand to have the endorsement and direct involvement of the French Absinthe Museam and Marie-Claude Delahaye. A unique quality control procedure that applies to both our Absinthe Supérieure, Parisienne and Blanche.

Only following this approval is the distilled Absinthe sent for bottling in Paris, being our central hub supplying many countries across continents including the America’s, Europe and Asia Pacific. Added Protection: To protect the all-natural Parisienne we have commissioned and coated our signature bottle with a special UV inhibitor to protect the liquid against sunlight, which can quickly damage natural green.

The taste and louche of Absinthe Supérieure:

A measure of the all-natural Parisienne, ready for iced water to be poured over the sugar cube…

“La Fée captures the aroma and taste that great writers and artists such as Rimbaud, Toulouse-Lautrec and Vincent Van Gogh enjoyed at the end of the 19th century”. Marie-Claude Delahaye

The nose neat is a powerful smooth spirit with a noticeable herbal Artemisia profile with soft tones of anis, fennel and spicy coriander showing… … after dilution the louche effect has turned the absinthe supérieure to a milky, opalescent green/yellow and opens up the aroma and taste, as the essential oils trapped in the distillations are released, filling the air and your senses.

Absinthe is no stranger to cocktails An essential ingredient for all bars during the Belle Epoque. Absinthe features in many pre-absinthe ban cocktail books, including Jerry Thomas Bar-Tender’s Guide (1862) & Harry Johnson’s New and Improved Bartender’s Manual (1882)

French and Swiss Absinthe was enjoyed by millions across the world in the 19th and early 20th Centuries. Since 1998 we have been involved in bans being lifted around the world, as absinthe is once again becoming a must-have for any bar, restaurant or club
