Absinthe has had its share of eerie earlier beginnings. In the early 1900’s, Jean Lanfray was convicted of murdering his wife and children while under the influence of liquor. Though he had consumed an excessive amount of wine, cognac and brandied coffees, it was the two glasses of Absinthe that created public outcry against this heinous crime leading to a petition to ban Absinthe in Switzerland. This is due cause to always remember to consume Absinthe and all spirits sensibly.
