La Fée Absinthe Parisienne is distilled in Paris based on a 19th Century recipe containing wormwood and is the only absinthe authenticated by Marie-Claude Delahaye, founder and curator of the absinthe museum.
As all regulatory ABSINTHE makers know, it is the Thujone in the oil that is to always be avoided. If you want thujone, I suggest you buy the essential oil and drink some then rub some all over your body. The OIL(!) is a neurotoxin, but like many other things, such as Juniper in English gin, you'll find that the object is not to extract thujone. It has to do with a combo of herbs and proper alc, then you'll be on your way to finding a good absinthe.

Top notch absinthe and I got a little sugar spoon thrown in - bonus !Quite morish though so be warned.

Why do so many people think that you should set fire to this?It's a marketing stunt made to make the drink have more "character".Dilute 1pt Absinthe to 5-7pts ice cold pring water, poured over a slotted spoon with a sugar cube.DO NOT SET FIRE TO IT.Sheep.

La Fee won't make you do anything. There isn't nearly enough thujone to have any noticeable effects.

I brought a bottle of this home from London, Its fun to do the rituals with the sugar cubes and fire. If your expecting to hallucinate from this you should consider a different Absinthe. Taste nice though and gets very milky looking once you add water.
