What is the story of the "Green Fairy" - Absinthe?
The magic drink absinthe „gives life its solemn coloring and lightens its dark depths". This is what Charles Baudelair wrote in times past. Absinthe triggered the imagination of poets and thinkers and inspired the art like no other alcoholic beverage ever before. Numerous masterpieces of Monet, Lautrec, Van Gogh, Picasso and Wilde were inspired by the absinthe and also the art of poetry has to pay its own tribute to the "Green Fairy". Even in small doses the absinthe had a euphoric and stimulating impact, quite useful features when creating a work of art, provided, of course, the beverage is consumed in moderation. As this very rarely was the case and alcohol became a social problem in general, a law was implemented in France in 1915 (Switzerland 1910) upon pressure from the church, to ban both the sale and production of absinthe by the wine lobby (they mainly cared about the sale of their product) and the trade unions. Absinthe was stigmatized downright due to its very high alcohol content.
In Germany, the absinthe ban came into place in 1923. Only 75 years later, the absinthe ban would be lifted so that absinthe can be enjoyed again within the European Union. There are different absinthe drinking rituals existing.
