La Fee Parisienne Absinthe Supérieure 20cl
La Fee Parisienne Absinthe Supérieure
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.
All-natural ingredients and colour (macerated herbs), distilled in France. Central ingredient being Grand Absinthe (Artemisia absinthium) and having a classic strength of 68%abv.
La Fée is distilled using three artemisia plants at its heart: Grand (Artemisia absinthium) & Petit Absinthe (Artemisia pontica) and Genepi (Genepi Artemisia), Green and Star Anise, Fennel, Hyssop and Coriander.
The Fine Art of Distilling & Blending The nine botanicals of La Fée Parisienne are individually distilled (as opposed to a single distillation of all the ingredients together). These distillates are then carefully blended by the master distiller according to the French Absinthe Museum approved recipe.
This method is much more labour intensive and time consuming than a single distillation, but the extra effort allows our Absinthe Supérieure to be replicated time and time
Both techniques (blending separate distillations and single distillation) were employed pre 1915 in France. The single distillation process (all ingredients distilled together in alcohol) will naturally vary from batch to batch – caused by subtle differences in the condition of the ingredients (herbs being dried at different temperatures, humidity levels, terroir, seasonal changes during growing etc).
Our experience shows the process of multiple distillations of separate herbs and spices gives us more control over the finished Absinthe. Enabling better consistency and quality, which is crucial when your spirits are so delicately balanced. A mere fraction of a change in one ingredient, caused by a natural variation, can upset the final balance of the spirit.
