La Fée X•S Suisse takes third consecutive Golden Spoon at the 2009 Absinthiades
La Fée X•S Suisse became a triple Golden Spoon winner at the 2009 Absinthiades. The Absinthiades is one of the most famous and highly regarded organisations in the absinthe world, and has this October awarded it’s highest honour – the Golden Spoon, for the third consecutive year to La Fée Absinthe X•S Suisse in the Blanche category. Such is our dominance of this event we are now banned from entering La Fée X•S Suisse for 2010.
La Fée X•S Suisse is one half of our Ultra Premium range – it is a wine based “Amer” distilled in the birthplace of absinthe: Couvet, Val-de-Travers, Switzerland. Our extra supérieure Swiss absinthe is a clear “La Bleue” style; it has a refined texture with delicate anise and herb flavours that linger elegantly on the palate.
The gold award will be presented in the Town Hall of Pontarlier, in the French Alps on the 20th November 2009. Local dignitaries include Patrick Genre, the Mayor of Pontarlier, who together with distillers and absintheurs will gather to celebrate this important re-emerging drinks category.
