💚 1910 The suppression of ABSINTHE in Switzerland. Humorous look at the end of The Green Fairy
💚 Reproduction in many sizes. Slightly foxed.
💚 Absinthe is an anise-flavoured, green-tinted spirit that was first produced in Switzerland in the late 18th century. Nicknamed
the “Green Fairy,” it is traditionally enjoyed as an aperitif.
❤️ 💚 Here is a little bit of history:
Especially popular among a group of artists and writers in Paris that included Oscar Wilde, Vincent van Gogh and Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Think of them as the hipsters of the Belle Époque.
This crowd attracted a fair bit of moral outrage, and so did the drink they enjoyed to remarkable excess. Then a couple of highly publicized scandals, including a multiple murder, were blamed on absinthe. And, in the early 20th century, when wine came back but couldn’t find a market, well, it was easy to blame absinthe for that, too.
First one country, then another banned absinthe until it was illegal almost everywhere in the world. It wasn’t until 2007 that those bans were overturned.
