Absinthe is an alcoholic distilled spirit, which is made from herbs. It includes the flower Artemisia absinthium, which is also called wormwood. Some people think, that Absinthe is a liqueur, but that’s wrong. It is an high alcoholic spirit.
The original Absinthe has a green color. Cause of this it is often called the green fairy (Fée Verte).
The first country, which distilled Absinthe was France. Now it is made in several countries all over the world. The most famous are Czech, Spain, Austria, Germany, Switzerland and France. In the 18th century Absinthe was used as a medicine. Later in the 19th century it was called an addictive and psychoactive drug!
