You know, we are always on the search for authentic absinthe reproductions to create this unique feeling of nostalgia. Now we have a new cool absinthe accessory available. The Absinthe Decanter Portieux. It is a dual-mouthed Absinthe carafe. Why? Because it was like this back in the old days and it has a perfect functionality: One large hole is for filling the decanter with water and ice. The other one is a small spout for a precise and fine water drip during the traditional Absinthe ritual. The dual-mouthed Absinthe decanter is the one and only carafe especially made for use with Absinthe. Former originals were produced during the years between 1910-20. Below you can see the original 1914 barware catalogue from the French glass manufacturer Portieux. We hope you will have a good time with this unique absinthe accessory, enjoy your journey….

Did you know that the Eiffel Tower was inaugurated in 1889…?
No? That´s not of a problem! When you decide to get our Absinthe of the Month Heritage Verte you will never forget this date. Why? Because every bottle is accompanied by one silver plated Paris 1889 Absinthe spoon. This Absinthe spoon is an authentic reproduction of the Absinthe spoon which was made for the festivities in 1889.
The tower is named after its architect and designer Gustave Eiffel. The project was proposed in 1884 as the eyecatcher of the Universal Exposition in Paris in 1889. It should mark the 100th anniversary of the French Revolution. Over 700 design proposals were handed in, but Eiffel’s tower proved to be the most popular. Maybe you already knew these facts but did you know the following…?
The design was not originally meant for Paris, but for the Universal Exposition of 1888 which was held in Barcelona, Spain. The Spanish rejected the design; only then did Eiffel enter it for consideration for the 1889 fair in Paris. Imagine the Spanish would have liked the design!

Cheers and always look on the bright side of life!
