I have yet to see any non-anecdotal evidence that absinthe originated in VdT. On the other hand, I've seen many recipes for it in English-language distilling and apothecary treatises since long before the 1790s, that made no mention of France or Switzerland. The anise-fennel-wormwood tonic itself has been around for ages.
Swiss IGP for exclusive use of the word "Absinthe"
