Absinthe is one of the most famous and controversial spirit drinks. It was already used in Greece for healing purposes, but the Swiss doctor Pierre Ordinaire published the first recipe in 1792. Later the French made it known to the world, becoming the most popular drink of the 19th century, especially among famous artists such as Van Gogh, Manet and Picasso, who claimed that this liquor boosted their creativity thanks to its thujones, the psychoactive component of absinthe with which it is made. This component caused its prohibition in almost all European countries, except in Spain, where it continued to be made according to traditional recipes. At The Fine Spirits Corner we have made a wide selection of absinthes with the highest level of thujones. It is a dry aniseed drink, which can be taken with water and sugar (using the special spoon, see accessories).
