Launched in 2000, La Fée was the first traditional absinthe to be commercially produced in France since the 1914-15 ban. This improved ‘Supérieure’ version (released July 2013) is made using natural ingredients so comes in a green painted bottle to protect the delicate contents from UV light damage
La Fée Parisienne is distilled using copper stills in the traditional way with its flavour centred around grand wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) and balanced with petti wormwood, green and star anis. A mark of La Fée’s authenticity is its endorsement by Marie-Claude Delahaye, founder and curator of the Absinthe Museum in Auvers-sur-Oise, France. George Rowley, the founder of La Fée worked with Marie-Claude to develop this new Supérieure version of his Parisienne absinthe. The level of grand wormwood has been increased in the distillation by 60% and the Green and Star Anise has been softened to allow delicate coriander, fennel and hyssop herbal flavours to emerge.

In order to ensure a consistent product and ensure UV light did not fade and change the colour, the original La Fée Parisienne had a small amount of added colouring to bolster the naturally occurring chlorophyll. Without this, if the absinthe was exposed to light, the chlorophyll would fad, changing the colour from emerald green to yellow green and then brown. Hence, this new all natural La Fée Parisienne comes in a special coated bottle to protect the contents from light damage.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 02/02/2015


Clear pale green, louches when water is added.


Fennel, coriander and slight liquorice with aniseed. With water: subtle anise sits above notes of fennel and coriander. Clean and fresh.


With water: Fresh and rounded with anise backed by angelica, coriander, fennel, liquorice and mint.


Long, well rounded finish.


This ‘Supérieure’ version launched in 2013 is more delicate and complex with far more subtle aniseed and rooty notes than the original La Fée Parisienne.
