Absinthe: an Exploration of the Role of Mythology and Ritual in Market Revival

Chapter Authors: Lauren I. Labrecque, Garret M. Warr, Joseph Labrecque
Publisher: Springer International Publishing (April, 2016)
ISBN-13: 978-3-319-26646-6
Pages: 325-328

This book contains the full proceedings of the 2015 Academy of Marketing Science Annual Conference held in Denver, Colorado. Marketing has become ubiquitous: it doesn’t matter who you are, where you are or what you are doing, you cannot escape it. In these times of instantaneous news, information and entertainment, everyone is exposed to messages from the moment they awake until the minute they drift off to sleep. America spends the most money in the world on advertising and other marketing communication. So, it could be said that marketing is America’s pastime, as much so as the classics: baseball, hot dogs, and apple pie. Under the theme of “ Celebrating America’s Pastimes: Baseball, Hot Dogs, Apple Pie and Marketing”, this volume discusses all of the good things that marketing can do. Showcasing research from academics, scholars and practitioners from around the world, this volume provides insight and strategies that will help marketers move forward and focus on the positive that marketing can provide to consumers, stakeholders and society.

Absinthe, a once wildly popular spirit, was banned at the turn of the twentieth century as a consequence of its purported hallucinogenic effects. Now after nearly a century-long prohibition, recent de-restrictions in Europe and the Americas have allowed the opalescent green drink, nicknamed “the Green Fairy,” to return to the marketplace. This research uses netnography and content analysis as tools to help understand the historic marketability and consumption of this product and to reveal current consumption behaviors.
