A variation of the original Un Emile Blanche. My own favorite of the two and again, made in cooperation with Liqueurs de France. This is no longer in production.

Absinthe reviews

Thanks to Peter at Liqueurs de France I hade the opportunity to sample the White Fairy when I was visiting Paris. It's an Absinthe Blanche, and it's ofcourse distilled, and also an exclusive Liqueurs de France product. Before this, the Un Emile La Blanche was my absolute favourite among the Blanches, but after tasting the White Fairy I've definitely found a new one for the top position.

It has a lower alcohol level of only 60% as opposed to the 68% of the Un Emile La Blanche. The lowered alcohol itself, contributes to the White Fairy being the perfect smooth it is. It also brings out the herbal notes in a better way then many others. The taste of anise is definitely noticable, but it's in no way dominant. It blends perfectly with the rest of the herbs.

When water is added, it produces a nice pale white louche and the textures of the drink is even more complex. I haven't yet tried adding sugar to it, but I don't find any need for that. It's a superb absinthe blanche right out of the bottle. I can highly recommend this one to anyone. You should get it.
