Vicente Bosch was its creator. The first anecdote tells about, a friend gave him a little monkey from America who baptized the brand. The history that inspired the bottle design is very tender: Vicente Bosch was looking for a gift for his wife so he went to Place Vendôme in Paris. There, he found the perfect perfume which inspired him to design the bottle of Anís del mono. This diamond design has remained unalterable over time.

Darwin, aged 45 in 1854, by then working towards publication
of On the Origin of Species.
|An 1871 caricature following publication of The Descent of Man|
was typical of many showing Darwin with an ape body,
identifying him in popular culture as the leading author of evolutionary theory.
|On The Origin of Species and Anís del mono.|
|They look the same, don't they?|

|Ad from 1922|
|Anís del Mono has digestive properties after heavy meals,|
that's why it's a well-known tradition to have one at Christmas.
Cheers, Mr Darwin!
