New Absinthe fountains have arrived (plus other Absinthe accessories)

12:06 pm in Absinthe Accessories, Absinthe Ritual by ALANDIA

It took a long time, but now they are here: The one and only replica Absinthe fountains! You can choose from the Lady Absinthe fountain and the Antique Absinthe fountain with two or four spigots. Absinthe fountains drive the Absinthe ritual to perfection. You fill the glass bowl with ice cubes and water and then let the water drip through the spigots into your Absinthe glass. It creates the best louche ever! And these Absinthe fountains are also nice to look at, even when they are not in use…

Check out the Antique Absinthe fountain and watch a video of the Absinthe fountain ritual!

We also received new stock of Absinthe Brouilleurs. These little absinthe accessories are placed over your Absinthe glass and are also used to blend the Absinthe with water. Check out our product video by clicking the following link: How to use an Absinthe Brouilleur.

And the handmade version of the famous Absinthe Glass Reservoir Pontarlier has arrived. These glasses are the  most authentic Absinthe glasses. They have a reservoir in the stem to measure the correct serving size of Absinthe. Check them out here: Absinthe Glass Reservoir Pontarlier.

The Classic French Absinthe Ritual

11:31 am in Absinthe Ritual by ALANDIA

This is the first of a series of videos dealing with the different kind of preparations of Absinthe. Absintheurs call this part ritual, because it´s exactly this!

You take your time, get your favourite Absinthe off the shelf, a stylish Absinthe glass, have your icecold water prepared, your spoon ready and some sugar cubes nearby… Here you go…
Sometimes it´s different: You have a brandnew, never-tried-before Absinthe, maybe a new Absinthe accessory like an Absinthe fountain or an Absinthe brouille and a different kind of preparation. We will show that later down the road, but first things first and this of course can only be The Classic French Absinthe Ritual. Feel free to post any comments about this ritual, maybe you have some slight variations for us.
