“The Green Fairy” wants to tickle your tastebuds
Absinthe is a strong, herb-infused alcoholic beverage first created during the late 18th century. It grew extremely popular in the 19th century and was notoriously enjoyed by many well known artists and authors of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Due to its green color and purported hallucinogenic qualities, it is often referred to as “The Green Fairy.”
These Absinthe Mints are anise flavored (the predominant flavor of absinthe) and come in a cool art nouveau tin complete with flying green devil fairies! The tin is so lovely that, even after you’ve finished the mints, you’ll want to keep it as a handy and attractive storage for all sorts of tiny things.
If you enjoy the flavor of licorice, you’ll love these candies. Experience the taste of the “Green Muse,” the “Atrocious Sorceress” and “Our Lady of Forgetting” without risking your liver or your brain. All the flavor without any of the toxicity of wormwood. Each 2-1/4" round tin contains one hundred mints. A great gift for licorice-lovers and fans of Belle Époque Paris.
