Possibly Malta's best-known beverage is the non-alcoholic, amber-coloured Kinnie. Long a household name in Malta, it was introduced in 1952 as an alternative to the soda drinks proliferating after WWII. Of course, its recipe is a closely guarded secret, but the acquired taste is distinctly one of bitter oranges with extracts of the herb Artemisia absinthium colloquially known as wormwood. Kinnie is exported to seven countries and also produced in Australia under licence. In the stamp design, the bobbing Luzzu boat, seascape and slice of orange complement Kinnie's retro label and bottle.
