World renowned absinthe expert George Rowley, CEO & Brand Owner of La Fee: Pioneer of the Absinthe renaissance since early 1998 with Marie-Claude Delahaye, historian and founder of The Absinthe Museum, Auvers-sur-Oise, France. They returned 'The Green Fairy' with La Fee - the first traditional absinthe to be distilled in France since the 1915 ban. We are now changing the face of the absinthe category across Europe, Asia and the USA with NV Absinthe Verte the first Premium Mainstream Absinthe - a spirit for everybody.

After ten years evolving this market, Rowley is proud to unveil the new dynamic direction for absinthe - which will draw in a broader group of both consumers and bars to this once forgotten mystical elixir: NV Absinthe Verte by La Fee is to absinthe what JD is to whisk(e)y and what Bacardi is to rum, at an RRP of US$21.99 / 750ml. - NV is the modern, mixable party spirit and perfect Christmas drink!

At 38%ABV 76 degrees PROOF, NV is distilled with Grand Wormwood, Anise, Fennel and a little something special from La Fee - representing a giant leap forward for the category into mainstream spirits, with affordability at no compromise to quality from The House of La Fee. NV is adorned by the iconic La Fee Eye Logo - our mark of excellence. NV turns cloudy on the rocks (Classic Absinthe Louche - no spoon or sugar needed) and is also a joy dropped into your favourite energy drink (NV Bomb) or in the NV Mojito... You get the picture - an original spirit whose characters combine to make an exciting addition to any back-bar and the all-round home party scene.

After four years in development NV Absinthe Verte by La Fee, product of Paris, France is the new starting point for absinthe. With its lower price point and alcoholic volume NV now allows consumers to enter at the premium mainstream level - leading up to La Fee's multiple award winning Premium and Ultra Premium Ranges (La Fee X S Suisse has just won a third consecutive Gold at the 2009 Absinthiades; Pontarlier, France). NV is already making an impression in the UK: National accounts include TGI Friday's and listing across many of the country's University venues. Selfridges & Co. of London are not just retailing NV, but also served the 'Sex Pistol' ice cream (with a shot of NV) courtesy of The ICECREAMISTS.

From a stable whose provenance, authenticity and quality are second to none, comes a contemporary absinthe for today's market - NV: The True Spirit of Absinthe for the People...
