Zmaj Absinthe - Copper & Kings

This illustration was made for the Copper & Kings distillery in Louisville, KY. They released an absinthe that was aged in Serbian Juniper barrels.

Serbian mythology tells of the dragon Zmaj . That tale was the original inspiration for Tolkien's dragon Smaug from The Hobbit. This design was a wonderful, fun mix of that mythology, and the Art Nouveau style that was so commonly used to market absinthe in the past.

Does the absinthe live up to it's name? Trust me, it's like drinking fire.
