Based on a 19th Century recipe, La Fée Absinthe Parisienne is distilled in Paris. It is the only absinthe authenticated by Marie-Claude Delahaye, founder and curator of the absinthe museum. Before diluting it is clear, showing a striking green color and has an attractive fresh anise aroma. When water is added its louche has great consistency turning a milky lime green. There are hints of fennel and apple fruit characters with a round textural mouth feel that is both smooth and refreshing.
