The Premium Absinthe accessory set includes two mouth-blown Pontarlier Absinthe glasses. This means, the glasses are not pressed, and therefore do not have a manufacturing seam. Furthermore these Absinthe glasses have a reservoir in the stem to measure the correct amount of Absinthe. The cut design is simply fascinating and perfectly reflects the allure of the Belle Epoque. The set comes as well with two stainless steel Absinthe spoons, which are like the glasses authentic reproductions of antique originals. One bag of individually wrapped Absinthe sugar cubes completes this high-quality set. If you are looking for premiumness with the charme of nostalgia, this Absinthe accessory set is the right one for you.
Pontarlier Absinthe glasses are the original:
Pontarlier glasses are named after the French town Pontarlier. Pontarlier was the Absinthe hub in the 19th century, many distilleries were located in this small town close to the Swiss border. The biggest player, Pernod Absinthe, had as well a large factory in Pontarlier. Originally the glasses got their name after they appeared in an advertisement for Pernod Fils Absinthe. The original motive was painted by the artist Charles Maire, Pernod mass-produced these artworks and soon they decorated almost every French bistro. If you are lucky, you can still find a copy at a flea market in France.
