Forget Santa Claus, the ‘Green Fairy’ has a special treat for adults this Christmas with the Apsinthion Absinthe Drinkers Pack!

This Christmas adults can enjoy the full absinthe drinking experience thanks to a free ‘absinthe spoon’ with every bottle of Apsinthion De Luxe absinthe!

Absinthe is commonly referred to as the ‘Green Fairy’ thanks to its mystical green colour; seeing as the kids have Santa Claus , why shouldn’t adults have their own magical character to look forward too! The traditional absinthe experience requires the use of a special absinthe spoon to prepare the drink. Often hard to come by and expensive, these intricately designed spoons have been included free with every bottle of Apsinthion De Luxe bought at Sainsbury’s nationwide.

Apsinthion History

Apsinthion's own story began over 200 years ago. Absinthe is said to have been created by Pierre Ordinaire, a French doctor, in 1792 for medicinal purposes. It is believed that the absinthe recipe arrived shortly after in Poland. After Gerhard von Blucher's (Field Marshall of Prussia) last battle at Waterloo in 1815, he returned to his farm in Prussia (Poland). From one of his French prisoners he brought with him the recipe which is now used for Apsinthion De Luxe Absinthe.
