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.

Unlike some mediocre glasses and cheap absinthe spoons available on Amazon and other websites, these absinthe glasses and spoons are NOT MADE IN CHINA, our Pontarlier glasses are made in France by Cristallerie La Rochere and spoons are handcrafted in the Czech Republic. We are confident that this set of two absinthe glasses and high-quality absinthe spoons is a perfect utensil for any absinthe connoisseur.

Pontarlier absinthe glasses are a fantastic absinthe-tasting and collectible items. Designed especially for preparing and serving absinthe they are made to the same measurements as original Pontarlier absinthe glasses with the reservoir at the bottom. A heavy machine-molded Pontarlier style absinthe glass is created using the original, 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 8.5oz – just over half a US liquid pint, helping the drinker to appreciate delicate aromas and flavors from the best absinthes without overfilling. Pontarlier glasses will, without a doubt, 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.
