LA FEE Blanche Absinthe Superieure 53%
Absinthe Blanche, France, 70cl, Ref: 4112
This Blanche/La Bleue absinthe is clear before dilution, displaying aromas of earthy, herbal wormwood and fresh anise. It louches consistently to a milky white, reflecting the dominant colour of its surroundings, such as a blue sky. After dilution (3-4 parts iced water to one part absinthe) a soft fennel aroma precedes a palate of anise, light citrus and floral character with a clean, off-dry and persistent finish.
Style: Fresh and subtle Nose: Vegetal (Fennel) Palate: Fresh, star anise, mint Finish: Smooth with floral notes

- Appearance : colourless.
- Nose : fine, subtle. The first fragrances that spring to mind are star anise and green mint. Develops into fresh notes of liquorice and absinthe. Particularly aromatic and balanced, notes of fennel appear. Once water is added, it offers a glimpse of fresh fruit
- Palate : mellow, smooth. Its powerful and honest character is very appealing. Warm spices (cinnamon, cumin and star anise) and aromatic plants (bay leaf and infused mint) are closely linked to notes of eucalyptus and grated ginger. Absinthe leaves literally spill
- Overall : long, tender. Medicinal (cough sweets), it reveals more spices (nutmeg and saffron). Ethereal, it diffuses an exquisite perfume of orange blossom. Earthy, it develops into gentian root and ginseng. Therapeutic, it offers cordial notes of juniper berries.
- The brand
Having fell from grace in 1915, absinthe is once again making a return to the forefront of French spirits. It was at the end of the 1990s that George Rowley reintroduced absinthe to the British market. In 2000, he met Marie-Claude Delahaye, the founder of the Absinthe Museum in Auvers-sur-Oise and the author of various works on the subject. With her support, he launched “La Fée” (The Fairy), a spirit made from absinthe plants and produced according to a French recipe that dates back to the 19th century. The different versions of La Fée are produced in micro-vats (100-1,000 litres) from the best distilleries in France and Switzerland. La Fée was awarded the “Absinthe” appellation in 2011.
