This Premium Absinthe accessory set includes two mouthblown (not pressed) Pontarlier Absinthe glasses made out of crystal glass. They have a reservoir in the stem to measure the correct amount of Absinthe. These glasses are authentic Absinthe glass reproductions, which were used in the 19th century. If you are looking for best quality (the crystal glass is just perfect) 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 Charels Maire, but 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.
