La Fee Absinthe

La Fée Absinthe is the first traditional absinthe distilled in France since the 1915 ban, and have been made in conjunction with the French Absinthe Museum (Auvers-sur-Oise). This is based on a 19th century recipe with Grand Wormwood (Artemisia absinthium), Genepi, Fennel, Anise and other traditional herbs and spices. These are distilled separately before blending, which ensures consistent quality from batch to batch.

No artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
