This Friends Don't Let Friends Burn Absinthe T-Shirt was designed by Gwydion Stone the founder of Wormwood Society (the internet's most formidable website for factual information related to absinthe) and the maker of Marteau Absinthe. Lighting absinthe on fire was invented sometime in the 1990's in the Czech Republic as nothing more than a gimmick. Pre-ban absinthe drinkers would have never lit their absinthe on fire. It is has become more socially acceptable due to popular movies, such as "From Hell" and "Moulin Rouge." Both instances of absinthe used in these movies are historically inaccurate. Today, many bars choose to "flame" their absinthe because it sparks interest and brings attention to the drink, therefore selling more absinthes. Why would you take a handcrafted, distilled liquor and burn it? Would you burn a handcrafted Scotch or bourbon?
