La Fée Absinthe 68% Parisien: A Journey Through the Emerald Isle

Unleash the Parisian muse within with La Fée Absinthe 68% Parisien, a potent and evocative absinthe available online and at our stores in Liphook and Petersfield. This spirit, crafted with meticulous attention to detail, transports you to a bygone era of Parisian cafes and artistic inspiration.

A Legacy Revived

La Fée Absinthe 68% Parisien pays homage to 19th-century absinthe traditions. Developed in collaboration with Marie-Claude Delahaye, the founder and curator of the French Absinthe Museum, this absinthe is the only one to receive her esteemed authentication. Distilled in France using a genuine 19th-century recipe, La Fée Absinthe 68% Parisien captures the essence of this legendary spirit.

A Symphony of Botanicals

The magic of La Fée Absinthe 68% Parisien lies in its intricate blend of botanicals. The star of the show is, of course, Grand Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), the very herb that lends absinthe its name and character. However, La Fée goes beyond the expected. They incorporate a triumvirate of artemisia: Grand Wormwood for depth, Petite Wormwood (Artemisia pontica) for complexity, and Genepi (Genepi Artemisia) for a touch of floral intrigue.

Aromatic Enchantment

On the nose, La Fée Absinthe 68% Parisien is a captivating experience. The initial wave is dominated by the unmistakable scent of anise, a quality shared by liquorice and fennel. This is soon followed by a delightful herbal complexity. Hints of wormwood emerge, intertwined with earthy notes of green anise and star anise. The subtle presence of hyssop adds a touch of minty freshness, while coriander whispers of citrus and spice.

A Taste of Parisian Decadence

The palate of La Fée Absinthe 68% Parisien is a revelation. The high alcohol content (68% ABV) demands a slow and measured approach. When sipped with a touch of water, a breathtaking transformation occurs. The louche effect takes hold, as the clear spirit clouds with a milky opalescence. This is a sign of the essential oils released from the botanicals, promising a flavour explosion.

The initial taste is a burst of anise, both sweet and refreshing. This quickly segues into a symphony of herbal notes. The wormwood takes centre stage, offering a complex bitterness that is both bracing and intriguing. The supporting cast of botanicals chimes in beautifully. Fennel brings a touch of licorice and earthiness, while coriander adds a whisper of citrus and spice. Hyssop's minty character provides a refreshing counterpoint, ensuring the experience remains balanced. The lingering finish is long and complex, with the bitterness of the wormwood slowly giving way to subtle hints of anise and spice.

Food Pairings for the Adventurous Palate

While traditionally enjoyed neat in the classic absinthe ritual, La Fée Absinthe 68% Parisien can also be incorporated into creative cocktails. However, for the true aficionado, the magic lies in savouring it alongside carefully chosen food pairings. Here are some suggestions to tantalise your taste buds:

  • Seafood: The herbal complexity of La Fée Absinthe 68% Parisien cuts beautifully through the richness of oily fish. Try it with smoked salmon, oysters, or grilled sardines.
  • Cheese: The bitterness of the absinthe complements strong cheeses like Roquefort, Gorgonzola, or aged cheddar.
  • Chocolate: The dark, bitter notes of La Fée Absinthe 68% Parisien find a perfect match in a rich dark chocolate dessert.
