Today (March the 5th) marks the anniversary of Absinthe’s return to the USA, which feels very appropriate, as we are currently shipping a container to the USA: Containing for the first time our all-natural La Fée Parisienne, Absinthe Supérieure as well as our La Fée Blanche, Absinthe Supérieure, a combination that offers traditional Verte and Blanche Absinthe endorsed by the French Absinthe Museum (Auvers-sur-Oise).
From 2000 to present day: the evolution of La Fée’s traditional French absinthe
Parisienne & Blanche are based on traditional 19th century recipes and made with 100% natural ingredients including Grand Wormwood, Green Anise & Fennel seed, with Parisienne’s natural colour protected by a UV resistant bottle. Parisienne is a rich, vibrant Verte possessing earthy wormwood character and warm spice with a hint of fennel sweetness and citrus – perfect for classic cocktails and the traditional serve. Blanche is, by comparison, a lighter, fresher and naturally sweeter absinthe – incredibly versatile and a delightful alternative to the classic Verte style.
Here are the other important dates for Absinthe lovers:
– May 2000 La Fée returns the distillation of Absinthe to France with the French Absinthe Museum, distilling and bottling in Paris
– April 2011 France repeals its ban, allowing absinthe to be labelled and sold as such for the first time in nearly 100 years.
