Absinth

 

During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, absinth drinking was a major social, medical, and political phenomenon, particularly in France, but also in other parts of Europe and in the United States. Owing in part to its association with bohemian culture, the consumption of absinth was opposed by social conservatives and prohibitionists. Ernest Hemingway, Charles Baudelaire, Paul Verlaine, Arthur Rimbaud, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Amedeo Modigliani, Vincent van Gogh, Oscar Wilde, Aleister Crowley and Alfred Jarry were all known absinth drinkers Very high proof of alcohol, notoriously addictive, and the drug of choice for nineteenth-century poets, absinth is gaining bootleg popularity after almost a century of being banned because of its psychoactive and hallucinogenic effects.

 

 

A bitter, potent drink, with an alcoholic content as high as 80 percent, absinth is made by mixing the leaves of the plant wormwood (Artemisia absinthium) with plants such as anise, fennel, coriander and others. The basis of absinthe is wormwood – Artemisia Absinthium. The word Artemisia comes from Ancient Greek, Artemis. In Hellenistic culture, Artemis was a goddess of the hunt, and protector of the forest and children.

Today Czech Republic is one of the absinth hot-spot in the world. There are many absinth producers and numerous absinthe bars. Usually word ‘Absinth’ is used instead of ‘Absinthe’ in Czech Republic, normally with meaning that it has less anise content than French ‘Absinthe’.
