Absinthe Mansinthe

absenta

Many artists and celebrities have created their own perfume, comestics or even their own spirits. This is the case of Marilyn Manson who has created his favorite drink (together with Markus Lion) Mansinthe.

Absinthe is a drink, also known as the green fairy, that contains green anise and fennel that gives it the deeper sour taste. It is normally diluted with water and sugar prior to being consumed. Although this drink is Swiss, it was the French Bohemian artists who made it so popular. Artists such as Hemingway, Oscar Wilde, Charles Baudelaire, Arthur Rimbaud, Paul Verlaine, Paul Gauguin, Pablo Picasso, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and Vincent van Gogh took the green fairy as one of their muses.

Manson, a green fairy lover, together with Lion, needed two years in develop this absinthe. Even Manson made the watercolours that we can see on the bottle’s label. The watercolour’s title is “When I grow old”.

As the bottle shape is so modern and slender, the label really stands out. The label and the typeface design have been made by Roeger Design and you can see it here. What do you think about Manson’s absinthe? Would you try it? You can buy it online.
