Today [March the 5th] marks the anniversary of Absinthe's return to the USA, which feels very appropriate, as we are currently shipping a container to the USA:  Containing for the first time our all-natural La Fée Parisienne, Absinthe Supérieure as well as our La Fée Blanche, Absinthe Supérieure, a combination that offers traditional Verte and Blanche Absinthe endorsed by the French Absinthe Museum (Auvers-sur-Oise).

From 2000 to present day:  the evolution of La Fée's traditional French absinthe

Parisienne & Blanche are based on traditional 19th century recipes and made with 100% natural ingredients including Grand Wormwood, Green Anise & Fennel seed, with Parisienne's natural colour protected by a UV resistant bottle.  Parisienne is a rich, vibrant Verte possessing earthy wormwood character and warm spice with a hint of fennel sweetness and citrus - perfect for classic cocktails and the traditional serve.  Blanche is, by comparison, a lighter, fresher and naturally sweeter absinthe - incredibly versatile and a delightful alternative to the classic Verte style.

Here are the other important dates for Absinthe lovers:

- May 2000 – La Fée returns the distillation of Absinthe to France with the French Absinthe Museum, distilling and bottling in Paris

- April 2011 – France repeals its ban, allowing absinthe to be labelled and sold as such for the first time in nearly 100 years.
