Photographer's Note

During the Trekearth Metting in Romandie, we visited an Absinthe distillery.

This is a mirror in the store reflecting some of the decorative lamps in the store. I am not used to taking this type of photos, I hope you all like it.

Absinthe is a distilled, highly alcoholic, aniseed-flavoured spirit derived from herbs including the flowers and leaves of the medicinal plant Artemisia absinthium, also called wormwood.

At the height of this popularity, absinthe was portrayed as a dangerously addictive, psychoactive drug; the chemical thujone was blamed for most of its deleterious effects. By 1915, it was banned in a number of European countries and the United States. Even though it was vilified, no evidence shows it to be any more dangerous than ordinary alcohol, although few modern medical studies have been conducted to test this. A modern absinthe revival began in the 1990s, as countries in the European Union began to reauthorize its manufacture and sale.
