The spoon Antique is an authentic reproduction of one of the most popular Absinthe spoons of the 19th century: The Losange spoon. It is made by zinc die casting (not shiny stainless steel) to give the spoon a vintage, slightly tarnished finish. The material is very solide, therefore this spoon will last for centuries. The reproduction is so accurate, that we engraved the spoon at the backside of the handle with the ALANDIA crest, to separate it from antique originals. Literally, this spoon is one of a kind and we highly recommend it to any nostalgic Absintheur!
The original Absinthe ritual with an Absinthe spoon:
The original French way of preparation includes an Absinthe spoon, one or two sugar cubes, an Absinthe glass and ice cold water. You pour Absinthe into the glass (approx. 20ml), place the spoon with the sugar cubes on top of the glass and add water. Santé!
