Product Description

This reproduction French absinthe spoon has 8 large stars mixed with 14 small holes in the rectangle grill. The large stars aid in facilitating the sugar water to drop more easily into the glass of absinthe. This is an exact reproduction of an antique late 19th century design.

This spoon is used in the preparation of a traditional French or Swiss absinthe. A traditional absinthe is prepared by pouring an ounce of absinthe into an absinthe glass, then placing the absinthe spoon on top of the glass and a sugar cube atop the spoon. Ice water is slowly dripped from a fountain, carafe or balancier onto the piece of sugar. The cold sugar water then drips from the spoon into the glass of absinthe releasing oils and perfuming the air with fennel, grand wormwood and anise. The combination also begins to turn milky white in color, as the water mixes with the anise.

  • Measures 6.75" (17.2 cm) in length.
  • Stainless steel.
  • Will not tarnish.
  • Dishwasher safe.
  • Imported.

    I'm very glad I purchased the spoon when I ordered my bottle of LUCID ABSINTHE.
    It's a must have for proper prep.
