With a massive wine shortage in France in the late 19th century, absinthe- an anise-flavored, emerald green liquor -quickly became France's most fashionable drink. In French cafes, 5pm became known as "l'heure verte," or the "green hour," signaling the flow of absinthe into the late hours of the evening.

"Nicknamed la fee verte (the green fairy) for its hallucinogenic properties, absinthe was the drink of choice for all, from the wealthy bourgeoisie to the working classes. The most famous of absinthe drinkers were the Bohemians - artists, writers, and intellectuals.

Among Absinthe's insatiable enthusiasts were Vincent van Gogh, Edgar Degas, Oscar Wilde, Edgar Allan Poe, and Mark Twain, who raved about the drink''s creative and poetic effects."
