Larusée, la vie en rose chez Fauchon

Il y a bientôt 130 ans que le marchand Auguste Fauchon, avec sa voiture des quatre-saisons, sillonait les rues de Paris et ouvrait sa première échoppe Place de la Madeleine. Plus d’un siècle s’est écoulé et le nom FAUCHON est désormais élevé au rang de mythe et symbolise l’épicerie fine de luxe à travers le monde.

La boutique de la Madeleine fait autorité en matière de raffinement. Fauchon y réunit tous ses métiers : traiteur et pâtisserie, épicerie et cadeaux, chocolats, confiserie, vins et spiritueux.

Fauchon recherche et sélectionne dans le monde entier ce qu’il y a de meilleur et de plus beau: l’exceptionnel.

C’est dans cet univers blanc, argent et rose fuchsia que Larusée a trouvé sa place dans la cave, devenant la première absinthe haut de gamme à être proposée par cette maison d’excellence.


First Asian destination for Larusée: Hong Kong

Let’s seduce Asia!

A population almost identical to that of Switzerland in a territory twenty times smaller, here is the first Asian land that a bottle of absinthe Larusée will see: Hong Kong!

Literally “Perfume Port”, Hong Kong is located on the eastern shore of Pearl River, on the south coast of China, is bathed by the South China Sea and adjoins Guangdong province to the north. It is the eighth business entity and the third largest financial center in the world. With a restaurant for 600 people, Hong Kong is probably one of the largest concentrations of restaurants per capita in the world! For Larusée, the more than 170 restaurants listed in the Michelin Guide, the many bars and cosmopolitan hotels represent an exciting challenge for a launch in Asia.

To do so, we are accompanied by the excellent Damien Fleury, founder and director of The Swiss Wine Store which defends and distributes, in the world of gastronomy in Hong Kong, many high quality Swiss wines. Larusée will be the first spirit in its portfolio. The Swiss Wine Store, which also operates an online shop in Hong Kong, will initially offer Larusée Bleue 55% and Larusée Verte 65%.

Larusée Verte wins Gold in San Francisco

Larusée Verte finds gold in California

médaille d'or SFWSCThe San Francisco World Spirits Competition is one of the most influential competitions for a reason. Throughout the years, they’d earned an exceptional reputation among trade and consumers due to their commitment to these three founding principles:

LEGACY

Founded in 2000, the SFWSC is one of the oldest competitions of its kind. With nearly two decades of experience, SFWSC operation has become a fine-tuned masterpiece that blends passion and professionalism.

INTEGRITY

Throughout their judging process, they emphasize integrity and impartiality. Their blind tasting process guarantees that every entry is judged fairly and given equal consideration.

EXPERIENCE

With nearly two decades of experience, the SFWSC has become one of the world’s most respected spirits competitions due in large part to their esteemed judges. Each with a distinct story and trusted palate, these seasoned experts are one of the reasons an SFWSC medal indicates the highest caliber of quality.

The 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition was held at the Hotel Nikko, San Francisco from April 13th through April 15th. The 2018 Competition was another record-breaking year that featured 2,469 spirit entries from all corners of the world, marking an 11% increase over last year’s competition.

Larusée is pleased to announce a new stunning result for the 2018 Competition with a new Gold Award for Larusée Verte. Congratulations to Jean-Pierre Candaux, our master-distiller!


Le Père Noël chez Larusée à Fenin

Le Joli Noël de Larusée!

C'est désormais une tradition, le Père Noël fait son apparition chaque année à la Grange Larusée!

Dans le cadre des Fenêtres du Calendrier organisées par l'association Les Petites Mains, où les habitants des villages de Fenin, Vilars, Saules et Engollon sont invités à décorer une fenêtre chaque jour du mois de décembre, Larusée était chargée de mettre en place le numéro 14. Et c'est pour nous l'occasion de régaler tout le monde, petits et grands!

Dans la rue des Bons-Voisins, malgré une météo… capricieuse, ce sont plus d'une centaine d'enfants et de parents qui ont pu assister à des démonstrations de jongleurs, de cracheurs de feu, se régaler de cake pops, de chocolat chaud et de vin chaud (à l'absinthe! selon l'incroyable recette de Thomas Bencze), de soupe aux pois et évidemment, pour les plus grands, déguster les produits de Larusée!

Le moment-clé, c'est incontestablement l'arrivée du Père Noël! Prévu à 19h, il est arrivé à l'heure pile, sous les acclamations des enfants qui, tous, sont repartis avec des étoiles dans les yeux et un petit cadeau dans les mains!

Un énorme merci à tous nos partenaires, au photographe Robin Nyfeler, et à tous ceux qui auront bravé la pluie et le froid pour participer à ce moment magique!


Le Joli Noël de Larusée, le 14 décembre à Fenin

Un moment de Fête autour de la distillerie

Le Joli Noël de Larusée, c’est un moment dévolu aux enfants et aux parents (ou non!) des habitants de nos quatre villages: Fenin, Vilars, Saules et Engollon! Un moment où tout est offert, où les ânes sont de sortie, où on déguste de l’absinthe (pour les plus grands, évidemment!), où l’on boit le meilleur vin chaud du pays, le meilleur chocolat chaud du monde, où les bonbons et les gâteaux rivalisent d’originalité, où la soupe aux pois remplis les estomacs et où le Père Noël arrive à 19h pour une grande distribution de cadeaux!

Bref, Le Joli Noël de Larusée, dans le cadre des Fenêtres du Calendrier organisé par les Petites Mains de la Côtière, c’est le moment où ça nous fait plaisir de faire plaisir!

Organisé en collaboration avec nos amis de Goldkenn, l’Auberge du Chasseur, du restaurant Terre Ô Fées, du restaurant La Charrue, du Toboggan de la Vue-des-Alpes et du Petit Espace.


Larusée takes off from Zürich and Geneva!

Ouch, the holidays start badly. Arrived at check-in, you realize that the bottle of Larusée that we had taken care to prepare remained on the bar! No matter! From now on, we find Larusée in the Duty-Free of Geneva and Zürich!

We are very pleased to announce that the two flagship products of our family distillery, our absinthes Larusée Bleue and Larusée Verte, are now available in Duty-Free Geneva and Zürich, in an original 100cl format, A box in the wink of the most beautiful places in Switzerland.

The airports of Geneva and Zürich see transit respectively around 16 and 28 million passengers per year. Under concession of the airports, the Swiss company Dufry now operates the duty-free shops of these two destinations. It is for absinthe in general, and for Larusée in particular, an exceptional visibility.


France: Larusée entrusts its distribution to Hedon

Larusée emphasizes its distribution in France

Larusée has been operating in France since 2013, with its subsidiary Larusée EURL in Paris.

As the reputation of the brand is on an upward slope, it was decided not to operate in its own name, but to entrust distribution and brand construction in France to an independent distributor, thereby enabling Larusée to benefit from a wide and selective distribution network, as well as better logistics.

After a long process of research and selection, Larusée chose Hedon, a company based in Strasbourg, led by Cédric Kanté, who shares the same values, the same love for fine products and the same objectives of development and growth as the members of our family. Hedon is also very experienced on the new spirits, since it distributes in exclusivity the Greek brand Skinos in France.

Hedon is present on almost all French soil and opens up new opportunities for Larusée to be served and sold in the most beautiful establishments. We wish Cédric Kanté and his team all the success they deserve! Continuons à semer le trouble!

Hedon

Founded in Strasbourg in 2015 and specialized in the distribution of alcohol, it is now run by Cédric Kanté, a Franco-Malian born in Alsace 37 years ago.

Freshly converted into the world of wines & spirits after a busy high-level sports career – he has been a professional footballer for 15 years – he strives to find premium products with a strong identity, focusing on human adventure with the owners of the brands he represents.

It is in this spirit that the companies Larusée and HEDON have decided to collaborate in order to propose and put forward the absinthes and other spirits of the artisanal swiss distillery on the French market.

Stéphan Perrotte, best confiturier in France, associates absinthe Larusée with fruit

La Fée Verte honored by Stéphan Perrotte

Stéphan Perrotte Champion du monde confiture meilleur confiturier de franceStéphan Perrotte fell very small in the cauldron (in copper, of course)!
Coming from a family working in the food trades, it is logical that Stephan went to 15 years to learn a delicatessen caterer. During this training, he participated in the competition of the Best Apprentice of France of the Charcuterie … and wins a bronze medal! Passionate about gastronomy, he took advantage of his holidays to discover other trades: baker pastry chef, fishmonger, restaurateur, salesman in the markets … His unusual journey and his thirst for knowledge quickly brought him to responsibilities, passing from chief pork chef to chef cooked. In 2013, he specializes as a confectioner. Never doing things by halves, he tests his products in competitions and, quickly, the distinctions are at the rendez-vous! He became Best Confiturier de France in 2014 and won the supreme title of World Champion of the Jam in 2015 in Beaupuy (F).
Stéphan is a specialist in bespoke creation and works for many chefs and prestigious establishments with exclusive recipes. His creativity has no limit, he gives free rein to his imagination, bringing the greatest care to his classics (meeker raspberries, wild blueberries, rhubarb) but also to pure creations to elicit emotion (apples, Yuzu and black sesame, raspberry strawberries with Iranian black lemon and argan oil, William pears with truffles …). Stéphan Perrotte makes all his jams in small series in copper pots.
I select exceptional products to make the ephemeral flavor of the fruits, perfumes of eternity. But as I was told one day, a little boy “the cook of fruits”

It was in the same year 2015 that the meeting between the swiss distillers and the confiturier was held at the International Gastronomy Festival of Mougins (Alpes-Maritimes). Between these craftsmen in love with flavors, the thunderbolt was immediate and the project to create jams marrying the fruit with absinthe quickly took shape.

For the Holidays, Stéphan Perrotte and Larusée offer two recipes: Pineapple – Absinthe Larusée Verte Wild Blueberries – Absinthe Larusée Verte
