Absinthe “La Fée Verte”  – The Green Fairy

The exhilarating story of Absinthe, also known as “La Fée Verde” the Green Fairy.

Absinthe was first produced in the second half of the 18th century by Mother Henriod as a medicine. Soon the medicine from the Swiss valley Val-de-Travers was very appreciated as an aperitif.
On October 7, 1910, Absinthe was banned by the Swiss authorities. A flourishing black market followed. Up to an estimated 35,000 liters of Absinthe were produced annually in the Val-de-Travers and sold in secret as “Lait du Jura” (Milk of Jura).
Since March 1, 2005, the distillation of Absinthe is allowed again in Switzerland. More than 30 distilleries, in Val-de-Travers alone, produce over 100 different Absinthes. Some of the recipes used are over a hundred years old.
