La Fée Verte – The Green Fairy. This name – or even "The Green Goddess" – stands for a type of Absinthe which for many artists and men of letters had been more than just a high-proof spirit. Distilled and then herbally dyed in natural emerald green, it switches to an opaque white once water is added. Ideally a strong rich flavour without any note of discord – the bitterish notes of wormwood plants derived from the distillation and colouring process, backed by a well-tuned bouquet of other herbs. Strong alcoholic content up to more than 70% vol., as to ensure a stable colouring.
