The premier independent absinthe resource since 2003

Musset didn't write the way he did because he drank absinthe, instead he drank for the same reason for which he wrote just like that: namely out of despair.

This was first named La Fée Absinthe. With the claim of being the only absinthe approved by the Absinthe Museum in Auvers-sur-Oise one would hope it would be decent. I guess money talks.

Absinthe reviews

This one was purchased at Selfridges & Co in London a while back. Made in France, and according to manufacturers website; "La Fée Absinthe is the only absinthe accredited by the French Absinthe Museum, and it's curator Marie-Claude Delahaye." That alone does not mean a thing to me, other than it probably is a lot better than most other brands. I need to make my own oppinion. So, I did just that. The bottle is a clear glass bottle, thus leaving to logic that the fluid itself is very green, and I'd say truly artificial. It actually tastes quite allright neat, but it does lack something. However, once tasting it with water it is quite good. And adding sugar to it, increases the taste even more. It is along the line of Pernod 68 and Absente. A well balance oil mix, which is not overly bitter. And this one is not as heavy on the anise either. It is actually a fairly good absinthe, and I think that anyone trying out absinthe should at some point have the La Fée. If for nothing else, it should be a reference for oil mix absinthes, along with the Oxygénée. It sure beats most other commercial oil mix absinthes available, but it's nothing I sip regularly.
