Buying absinthe online could not be simpler. At Drinkon.com, we stock some of the most sought-after absinthe drinks. Nicknamed La Fee Verte (the green fairy), the Green Goddess or Green Muse, absinthe has caused a stir since its invention in the 18th century. The name is derived from artemisia absinthium, or wormwood, one of its ingredients. Hugely popular in France and Switzerland in the late 19th century, it gained a terrible reputation and was banned by 1915. Despite popular perceptions, it has never actually been illegal in the UK. Although still a powerful drink, the concentration of Thujon is now strictly controlled and absinthe is enjoying a huge comeback.
