Tonight I collected 15 cool Absinthe retro posters. I picked out my favourites among hundreds of absinthe retro posters. It is made from the flowers and leaves of wormwood, green anise, sweet fennel and other herbs.
It has a natural green colour and was referred to as the Green Fairy. It originated from Switzerland in the late 18th century but quickly gained great popularity as an alcoholic drink in late 19th- and early 20th-century France, particularly among Parisian artists and writers.
The drink has a high alcohol level and is normally diluted with water for drinking and has often been portrayed as a dangerously addictive psychoactive drug.
As with other cool and classic ad´s and posters like Guinness, these has the very significant attributes of the classic advertising.
I have never tasted it, but when I see these coo retro posters, I get an urge to try it out some night. I know it has come back on the market so I guess I have to check out the pubs in my area to have a pint of this classic drink.
But the main reason for this post is by all means the beautiful design and the quality of these ad´s and posters.
