The History of Absinthe

Here’s a nice infographic that charts the history of the drink Absinthe starting in 1769 and finishing in 2007.

It talks about how the original strength of absinthe was set at 136-proof, how the French army gave soldiers a regular ration of Absinthe and how Switzerland was the first country to ban the drink.

It’s a great infographic that documents the interesting history of a drink with lots of myths attached to it, something you’re sure to learn from.

Enjoy.
