What is a classic Blanche (white) Absinthe Supérieure
All-natural ingredients (colour clear), distilled in France. Central ingredient being Grand Absinthe (Artemisia absinthium) and having a classic strength of 53%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, Coriander, Mint, Melisse and more.
The Fine Art of Distilling & Blending
The eleven botanicals of La Fée Blanche 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 again. Ensuring old and new cocktails can be replicate around the world.
