Absinthe: “The Green Fairy” (La Fée Verte)
Absinthe dates back to the 18th Century. According to popular legend, Absinthe began as an all-purpose patent remedy created by Dr Pierre Ordinaire, a French doctor living in Switzerland around 1792. It is an anise-flavored spirit derived from botanicals, including the flowers and leaves of Artemisia absinthium ("grand wormwood"), together with green anise,. . .
