Famous Absinthe Drinkers

Vincent Van Gogh - The Dutch post-impressionist painter, famous for works such as The Sunflowers, was a renowned Absinthe drinker. His mental illness in later life, which lead him to chop off his own ear, baffled neurologists and psychiatrists, and many believed it was Absinthe that caused it.



Marilyn Manson - The rock frontman is also said to be an Absinthe devotee. He likes the drink so much that he created his own brand, which he named Mansinthe.



Oscar Wilde - The poet was an avid absinthe consumer and often wrote about the drink. He is quoted to have once said: “What is the difference between Absinthe and a sunset?”



Throw Your Own Absinthe Party

There are a number of brands now selling Absinthe throughout the world, which means you can get hold of a bottle and throw your very own Absinthe party. Thanks to manufacturers like Lucid, who helped lift the ban in America in 2007, and Clandestine, it’s easier than ever before to enjoy the herbal liquor at home. So why not buy a few bottles, put up some Belle Epoque posters, light lots of green candles and get everyone to dress in a Bohemian theme for a magical, mystical party to remember.
