Absinthe (also known as 'the green fairy') was drunk and popularized during the Belle Epoque era (1870-1914) in France, but it was then banned in France in 1914, with other countries following suit. In 2000, La Fee became the first brand to start making absinthe in France again. It is produced in association with the Musée de l’Absinthe, the Absinthe Museum, whose owner Marie-Claude Delahaye is considered the world's foremost expert in this high proof liquid. Once she tastes it and approves it, it is sold. The Parisienne was the first absinthe to be made after the 1914 ban, using a traditional recipe dating back to the 19th century used by the Cherry Rocher distillery in Lyon. On the nose – anise with subtle fennel coriander and touches of liquorice. It has a very fresh mouthfeel and taste, and is superbly rounded. The finish is long and well-rounded. Use this in classic cocktails like the Sazerac or Death in the Afternoon, or drank it the classic way – mixed with water and sugar.
