About absinthe

The powers of this elixir

Oozing with symbolism, the "Green Fairy" is behind many a fantasy and has sparked people's imaginations ever since it first appeared in the late 18th century.

You probably know it as the "drink that makes you lose you mind". But in fact absinthe has a nickname that highlights its mystical nature and the elegant complexity of its aromas: "The Green Fairy".

Generally speaking, this name conjures whole worlds of magic, spells, femininity, danger and seduction, to name but a few, which just goes to show the impact this beverage has had on the lives of the many people who have fallen under its influence. And it's this notion of influence that is best illustrated by the "Green Fairy" metaphor.

And you, have you ever been under the influence of this drink?
