    6. A brief history of absinthe, FAQ's and step-by-step instructions how to prepare a traditional French/Swiss absinthe.
Instructions for Fountain Use:

Proper use consists of: pouring a dose of absinthe (typically an ounce) into an absinthe glass, placing an absinthe spoon across its rim, and adding a sugar cube(s) atop the spoon. The amount of sugar used is subject to one's preference. Situate the glass, so the sugar is located directly underneath a spout. Remove the fountain's lid to add fresh water and ice into the glass globe. Always add room temperature water first to the fountain before slowly adding ice. Using room temperature water is essential, as adding icy water or ice first can cause thermal shock, which could crack the glass. Replace the lid. With a slight turn of the spigot key, the cold water will begin to slowly drip onto the sugar cube below and into the glass of absinthe. To fully open the spigot, turn the spigot key parallel to the fountain arm, allowing the water to flow, creating a gentle stream. The water mixing with the herbs in the absinthe releases various oils and begins to perfume the air with the smell of fennel and anise. The combination will turn milky white as the water reacts with the anise. Add water and sugar to your taste. Stir, and drink.

The amount of water and sugar is subject to your liking. You can compare this process to preparing a coffee. Some people like their coffee sweeter or with more milk than others. You make your absinthe to your preference. Absinthe-to-water ratios vary depending on the absinthe, the amount of absinthe used, and your taste preference. A general rule of thumb is 1 part absinthe, to between 3 to 5 parts water.

After use, allow the water and glass globe to adjust to room temperature. For cleanup: pour any remaining water out, remembering to open all spouts where water will remain. Place the fountain upside down onto a bar towel, allow it to dry overnight. If only water is used, there is no further cleaning necessary. Refresh water before each use.

Our fountains have been tested with water before leaving the factory and again inspected in our warehouses before shipping. Upon receiving your fountain, we suggest hand washing the globe with soap and room temperature water and running water through the spouts before using. Do not use hot water. Do not wash in the dishwasher. California Prop 65 compliant when properly used.

Please do not hesitate to write or call if you have any questions.

    Beautiful fountain and complete set

    Posted by Kevin on Aug 15th 2023

    The set arrived in perfect order and everything necessary to enjoy the first absinthe drink is included ,except the absinthe :-) Lesa was most helpful with my order. I decided to purchase the 4-spout versus 2-spout because of the full height of the fountain. I believe it looks more elegant (and more true as a reproduction). If you are tight on space you should consider the 2-spout. It still looks beautiful I think but the height ratio of the base vs the glass canister is different. (The fountain with 4 spouts has longer base thus more elegant in my eyes.) Overall I'm very pleased with the purchase and with La Maison Absinthe. Highly recommended.

    Beautiful fountain and complete set

    It's a perfect set! The lady fountain (4 spouts) was perfect for my home bar. The rest of the items helped complete my absinthe set and so I could enjoy right away as soon as the box was opened. Lesa was most helpful with my order and suggestion of the Absinthe to acquire. I was debating between the 2-spout and 4-spout. I decided with the 4-spout as it is more true to the reproduction of the original fountain. The 2-spout is a bit smaller and thus has different height proportion. I believe it would still be nice if you have a tight space. Overall, I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase and I look forward to many relaxing evenings with La Fée Verte.
