Brenoi Absinthe Bottles









Historically many believed that a spirit lived within the Absinthe which is released with the opening of a new bottle! Some Artists even claimed they created their art dazzled with a "jade vision" inspired by Absinthe.

At the turn of the 19th century, there was much hysterical press and allegedly serious articles and books on the subject…..
  “ The seat of the manufacture of this dangerous beverage is in the canton of Neufchatel… It is largely used in France and America, and its use is growing in England… Absinthe drinking has a most deleterious on the nervous system, and regular tippling utterly deranges the digestive system, weakens the frame, induces horrible dreams, and may end in idiocy or paralysis !!!!"

( "The Beverages We Drink" by W.N. Edwards, F.C.S. - 1898)


The Bohemian artist set made Absinthe even more notorious, with their indulgences, by the likes of Toulouse – Lautrec, Hemmingway, Oscar Wildes etc. who drank it; and it was the cause, some say, of Van Gogh, cutting off his ear.
