Hapsburg Traditional Absinthe follows in the footsteps of the “The Green Fairy” and is produced in Italy with the same centuries-old aniseed taste and aroma. Absinthe gained immense popularity in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as bohemian artists and writers such as Toulouse-Lautrec, Hemmingway and Oscar Wilde found it had an inspiring effect on their creativity and it became commonly known as “The Green Fairy”. The cause of this effect was the high quantities of Thujone found in one of the ingredients: Wormwood. Public pressure to reduce Absinthe’s high consumption in the early 1900’s, forced both France and Switzerland to cease production after almost 100 years. Absinthe’s modern revival began in earnest in the 1990’s and it is now a drink enjoyed the world over
