Apsinthion De Luxe 55%
The history of Absinthe dates back to the times of Hippocrates, who treated his patients with wormwood. According to a few sources, the recipe was created at the end of the 17th century by a Swiss lady named Henriode collecting herbs, and the obtained elixir was willingly sold by local doctor Pierre Ordinarie to his patients. Absinthe was especially fashionable among artists. Its fans included Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Oscar Wilde and Edouard Manet. Supposedly, the drink enhanced their creativity, ruled their minds, was a muse and inspiration. Absinthe became an icon of artistic bohemian circles. Numerous paintings and literary works were probably created owing to absinthe.
