Bubble Absinthe Glass
One of the rarest of all antique absinthe glasses, this reproduction Bubble Absinthe Glass is a must have for any absintheur. This unusual glass acts differently than other absinthe glasses in that the absinthe is poured into the reservoir (the bubble located in the bottom of the glass) until the bubble is full. Sugary ice water is then slowly added into the glass. Because water is heavier than absinthe, the water slowly forces the absinthe out of the bubble and into the upper chamber of the glass. This is a nice way to watch the louching process, when the absinthe begins to turn milky in color. This reaction occurs as the water mixes with the anise in the absinthe.

In my opinion; the most interesting of the absinthe glasses. Fits perfectly with the "Glass Verse-Eau water pourer". Noticed a couple of bubbles in the glass. Only mentioning because someone might find fault in the product for this, however; I feel the fact that this is hand blown glass and not your usual modern mass produced item excuses this from absolute perfection. I would not hesitate to purchase again.
