George Rowley MD of La Fée joined Luxardo & Filliers Gin at the Black Pepper & Basil Training Academy and distributor of La Fée in Lisboa, for a Master class in La Fée Absinthe Luxardo and Filliers with bar professionals.
They enjoyed learning about traditional serves of La Fée Absinthe, both Parisienne Absinthe Supérieure and La Fée Bohemian Absinthe, he demonstrated to the mixologists, how the Absinthe fountain was used traditionally. George then explained the history of Absinthe and his involvement in bringing absinthe back after the 1915 ban.

George then joined the Luxardo team at their take over of the Red Frog speak easy bar, where he enjoyed a cocktail made from both Luxardo Maraschino and La Fée Parisienne Absinthe Supérieure. Red Frog Speak Easy bar was voted one of the top one hundred bars in the world, we look forward to seeing them a lot more in the future.
We enjoyed a few ENVY NV Absinthe Verte Mojito’s made with Freshly squeezed lime juice, muddled mint leaves, and soda water, you can use sprite also, here we can see the Castle in Lisbon from “Bar” for more recipes on cocktails using La Fée, we also have some great cocktails using our ENVY Spirits, to find out how to make these great cocktails and to purchase our La Fée and Envy spirits range
