Reviews Directory All Product Reviews Traditional Absinthe

Traditional Absinthe

These brands represent the quality range of modern absinthes made in the traditional style of the 19th century. Our criteria for what constitutes "traditional style" are based on the qualities and character of properly distilled absinthes made at the height of absinthe's popularity in the late 19th century; these were the definitive item. Briefly, these criteria are:

• Minimum 90 proof.
• May not contain sugar or other sweeteners.
• Must contain Artemisia absinthium wormwood as a main ingredient.
• Must have a main characteristic flavor of aniseed and wormwood.

For more on these criteria, read this article on Absinthe in the U.S..

If you would like to add your review, please read and follow the guidelines the Wormwood Society Absinthe Scoring Guide to determine your score.

From the LdF website:

White Fairy is an absinthe blanche developed by Liqueurs de France and produced by the Emile Pernot distillery. This absinthe is released at 60% alcohol, which, we discovered, allows its delicate aromas to be less hindered by a high alcohol punch. As such, it also comes closer than our well-received Un Emile La Blanche 68 to the style and alcohol content found in Swiss 'La Bleue', which is typically between 50 - 60 %, but White Fairy uses no star anise, thus minimizing the 'licorice-like' taste.

Angélique is a genuine Verte Suisse absinthe, distilled using 12 plants, including angelica and grande wormwood from the Val-de-Travers. Steeping a mixture of aromatic plants in the distillate produces its natural colour.

Angélique has been created in response to many requests we have had for a Swiss absinthe that is slightly more bitter but which still has all the characteristics that gives Swiss absinthes their reputation.
