This facet-cut glass Verse-Eau (water pourer in French) is a single server used to slowly add water (and optional sugar) to absinthe. It is a reproduction of a glass brouilleur found in the late 19th century, which are highly sought after by collectors and difficult to find.

 A dose of absinthe is first poured into the glass and the glass Verse-Eau is placed on top of the glass. Ice is then placed inside the glass Verse-Eau and water is slowly poured over the ice from a carafe or pitcher. The ice water will begin to stream through a small hole located at its bottom into the absinthe below.

It is not suggested to completely fill the Verse-Eau with water. Doing so could quickly overfill the glass, or add too much water for your liking. The preferred method for use is to pour small amounts of water into the piece, in increments. This way the absinthe can be tasted and adjusted, before too much water is added.

Hole at the bottom of the Verse-Eau may vary from one piece to another, as they are each mouth-blown. Each hole is hand drilled using a diamond bit.

To use with sugar, place a cube (or stacked cubes) over the hole before the ice and water is added. The stream will slow as the sugar may slow the water flow. As the sugar begins to desolve into the water, the sugar water begins to stream into the glass of absinthe.

    Glass Absinthe Verse-Eau

    Nice quality and looks great atop the Pontarlier traditional Absinthe Glass I had ordered previously (matches nicely). Ice can be placed inside for a colder drip. Not sure where to put a sugar cube (over hole doesn't seem to do it), but I have the Balancier (See-Saw style) that sits above a spoon when I want to drip over sugar. Otherwise a simple, yet effective dripper/brouilleur.

    Great product. Does what the name implies. Drips water. Fits Absinthe glass nicely.
