DESCRIPTION
Absinthe is a distilled spirit infused with herbs including the thujone-containing Artemisia absinthium. Many describe its effects as significantly different than alcohol alone, but the nature of thujone's effects are much disputed. It was popularized in the late 19th century and associated with the bohemian artistic movements of the time.
