A must have for any Absintheur, this Balancier is another way of adding sugar and water to a traditional absinthe. Sometimes referred to as the Cusenier "Auto Verseur" or see-saw, due to the lever motion while in use. This piece is meant to be used for a single serving.

To use, first pour a dose of absinthe into an absinthe glass (amount dependent on glass used), then lay an absinthe spoon across its rim and a sugar cube atop the spoon. The Balancier is then placed on the rim of the glass and over the spoon, with lever located over the sugar cube. Ice and water are then added inside the reservoir. Once the water begins to pass through a small hole located at bottom of the reservoir, it streams onto the lever which creates a see-saw motion dispensing the water onto the sugar cube, thus falling into the glass of absinthe. All absinthes should be made to one's personal preference. Add more water or sugar if you prefer. Remove and enjoy!

    This balancier is beautifully crafted and works perfectly. Watching the see-saw adds a wonderful relaxation even before your first sip. A must for those who appreciate the ritual of absinthe.

    As Brouilleurs go, this is a mesmerizing piece. This Balancier's seesaw action distributes the drips of water with fascinating motion. And while the description states it's a single serve dripper, it will work straddled over two glasses. It fits well on the Pontarlier Traditionnel Absinthe Glass(es) with or without a sugar cube spoon. Fun product! Only 4 stars because my first Balancier rusted and had to be replaced (which was handled quickly and easily by Maison Absinthe!), but I have had no issues with the replacement.
