Product Description

Pontarlier Absinthe Glass is a heavy, chunky glass that feels quite substantial in the hand. The shape appears to be something that came straight from the nineteenth century. The most interesting and useful aspect of this particular design is the small bulbous reservoir at the bottom of the glass. It acts as a measuring jigger and by filling it up to the line you have just the right amount of absinthe to make a perfect drink. Use it together with a proper absinthe spoon to fully appreciate the experience.

Pontarlier absinthe glasses are a fantastic absinthe-tasting and collectible items. Designed especially for preparing and serving Absinthe. A heavy machine-molded 'Pontarlier' style absinthe glass is created using the original, recently rediscovered 19th-century mold. These glasses are replicas of the Pontarlier glass featured in the painting by Charles Maire. The volume is quite large, approximately 25cl or 8.5 fl. oz. – just over half a U.S. pint, helping the drinker to appreciate delicate aromas and flavors from the best absinthes without overfilling. We are sure that Pontarlier Glasses will make a fine addition to your barware collection.

French absinthe ritual
First you pour roughly three ounces of absinthe into a heavy parfait-style stemmed absinthe glass. A sometimes elaborately perforated absinthe spoon is set upon the rim of the glass and on the spoon is placed a cube of sugar. Ice-cold water is ever so slowly dripped from a glass carafe designed specifically for that purpose, onto the cube. The sugar dissolves and you continue pouring until the ratio of absinthe to water is about two to five parts, depending upon your taste and fortitude. Give the absinthe drink a spin with the spoon and drink like you dripped - slowly.

Excellent glassware

The glasses are very well made and quite elegant looking. They have the perfect capacity for their intended purpose. The included spoons are adequate, however, they appear to be nothing more than stamped stainless steel. They will suffice if you have no other options.

Great set

I bought this to go with a bottle of Absinthe Innocent for my boyfriend's birthday. The quality of the glasses and spoons is top-notch. However, we did notice that the spoons did have some black residue in the slats, probably leftover from manufacturing. It came off with a good scrubbing so it wasn't a huge problem.
