For nearly a century, absinthe was an illegal substance in America and most of the world, blamed for everything from hallucinations and delirium to even violent rampages. Uncover how a French psychiatrist, ill-timed global temperance movement, and good ol’ fashioned fake news caused this widely popular spirit to be banned until the 21st century.
Join the Young Patrons Circle in partnership with New York Adventure Club as we taste and learn our way through the (now legal) spirit of absinthe at a private residence.
Led by Don Spiro, co-founder of the Green Fairy Society and one of the creators of New York’s vintage scene.
