Absinthe Training in Dubai & Abu Dhabi PDF Print E-mail

The UAE is made up of 7 emirates including Abu Dhabi (the largest) which holds the presidency and Dubai which is the main transit and visitor destination. These areas are receiving much investment including the building of the Louvre Abu Dhabi (Dec 2015) and Guggenheim Abu Dhabi (2017) as well as resorts the size of small cities.

Flying out of Heathrow T3, it was a pleasure to see La Fée in Duty Free and a passenger having just purchased, a good omen for my trip… On landing at Dubai, La Fée was also in the Duty Free landing and departure stores.

This Daiquiri-like cocktail by The Savoy's Tom Walker is as cool and crisp as a dip in a mountain stream.  Don't be scared of the absinthe - it makes the drink.  By Alice Lascelles in The Sunday Times Magazine.

Absinthe Day: A celebration of Absinthe's return to the United States PDF Print E-mail
Written by Administrator   
Monday, 28 April 2014 01:00

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.

...Jeremy Clarkson calls on the alleged creativity-enhancing powers of Absinthe (two whole bottles!?) to assist the design team for the next Lamborghini (LINK @12m10s). Our advice would be a couple of glasses of the classic La Fée Parisienne Absinthe Supérieure served in the traditional manner. We'll be sending a bottle or two to Jeremy, James & Richard to inspire their next design project.
