La Fée Parisienne Absinthe, 1 x 70cl
About this deal
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. Pressure came from wine producers, who saw it as competition to their ailing wine trade trying to recover after the bout of phylloxera.
Tested and approved before bottling by Marie-Claude Delahay, founder and curator of Le Musee de l'Absinthe, Auvers-sur-Oise, France. Launched in 2000, La Fée was the first traditional absinthe to be commercially produced in France since the 1914-15 ban.
The La Fée portfolio is led by La Fée Parisienne Absinthe Superieuere, which is a classic full- strength French green absinthe and generates the bulk of La Fée's sales. Distilled in Paris based on a 19th Century recipe containing wormwood, 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.
