I live just outside London but have no idea where you can buy La Fee. All I know is that you can get Mari Mayans in an off licence in Soho (I think on Gerrards St) and you can buy Sebor, (at an extortionate price of £18 for 350 ml (nice bottle design though)) in Waitrose Supermarkets. Can't really help you I'm afraid, I tend to buy via mail order.
I'd also be interested in knowing where you can buy La Fee in London, (although I'm flat broke at the moment).

It is actually very difficult to tell how popular absinthe is in the UK never mind La Fée. As I have mentioned in previous posts, it is mostly found in the more hip bars in London, most bars stock Hills or the French etsatz 'absinthes' and most bars don't serve it correctly (and charge around £9 a shot). I can say that there is far more absinthe around now than when I first started to buy it a couple of years ago. In those days you could spend half a day wandering around the off-licenses (liquor stores), whereas now their display windows are full of it - albeit mainly Czech and French brands. Oddly enough, of the Spanish brands, only Mari Mayans has caught on here.
So back to the original point...I can't tell you how La Fée is selling, I haven't seen it in any of the bars that I visit yet but I am going out for a few cocktails tonight so I will ask around. My feeling is that there are few connoisseurs around and the majority of those who do drink absinthe only ever try Hills, and they would probably send their drink back if it louched.

Your are of noble blood. How popular is La Fee over there right now?

I just bought some La Bleue from Betina Elixirs and it is excellant. The service is very fast and the product is very, very tasty. She also threw in some French sugar which made the experience that much better.If you are looking for La Bleue, I would highly suggest going to Betina Elixirs.

I can offer to supply La Fée on a non-profit basis (provided I don't get overwhelmed by emails) to those who want to try it. It would cost about $65 (cheaper if you can pay in sterling) plus postage. Be advised that postage to the US from the UK is expensive and would add around $25. This is a favour to those in the group who can't get this brand any other way so please don't email me unless you are serious.

Only a 100% mark-up. Not too bad, relatively speaking.
|By Chrysippvs on Monday, September 18, 2000 - 11:11 pm: Edit|
Je suis sûr que vous pouvez obtenir des honoraires de La d'Angleterre puisque vous êtes si étroit. Je suis non sûr simplement qui faciles il sera pour l'entrer dans la France. Faites-nous savoir si vous en obtenez.

I now offer La Fee for sale to customers within
the USA and Canada. And it is not a 400% mark-up:
$120USD including shipping...

Oops. My last message will only get you to a place to buy the Spanish absinthe. Sorry. LaFee is only available in the UK, as far as I know. If someone in this forum lives there, maybe they can send you some with the standard 400% mark-up, of course. ;-)
