Absinthe, often referred to as the “Green Fairy,” is a potent and storied spirit with a history as rich as its emerald hue. Originating in Switzerland in the late 18th century, absinthe gained popularity among bohemian artists and writers in France, becoming a symbol of creativity and artistic rebellion. The spirit is infused with botanicals, including anise, fennel, and wormwood, lending it a complex flavor profile.
