H.R. Giger – Alian artist, designer and absinthe lover diead at 74
The Swiss artist H.R. Giger, who designed the creature in Ridley Scott’s sci-fi horror classic Alien as well as the Absinthe Wolfsmilch & Zeitgeist together with the Absinthe Distribution form Solothurn, has died at age 74 from injuries suffered in a fall.
Giger’s works, often showing macabre scenes of humans and machines fused into hellish hybrids, influenced a generation of movie directors and inspired an enduring fashion for “biomechanical” tattoos.
“The greatest compliment is when people get tattooed with my work, whether it’s done well or not,” he told Seconds magazine in 1994. “To wear something like that your whole life is the largest compliment someone can pay to you as an artist.”
We are absolutely shocked and shattered. I would like to express our deep felt compassion for his wife and the whole Giger family.

HR Giger Absinthe at the book fair in Leipzig!
March in Leipzig is characterised by reading. The Leipzig book fair and its reading festival „Leipzig reads“ are the spring events of the book and media sector. Authors, readers and publishing companies meet to collect information, to engage in exchange and discover what is new and the Absinthe Distribution form Solothurn was part of it.
NEW – HR Giger Absinthe Zeitgeist and Wolfsmilch
True to the traditions and with the help of H.R. Giger himself, Absinthe Wolfsmilch & Zeitgeist is distilled together with Franics Martin at the birthplace of absinthe. None of the H.R. Giger family absinthes have any added artificial colour. All are 100% natural.

Tina Bar Absinthe Tasting
It was a fantastic Absinthe and Cocktail evening in Zurich.
If you haven’t tried real absinthe, you don’t know what you’re missing. This spirit has complex flavours usually associated with fine wines. A Tina Bar absinthe cocktail or long drink will change your mind about this intriguing and refreshing drink!
Many thanks to Daniel Fischer!
