Description
 
This reproduction absinthe spoon is among 8 known originally made to celebrate the introduction of the Eiffel Tower at the Exposition Universelle, a World's Fair held in Paris, France in 1889. There are 3 spoons with same design, but with subtle differences, making the originals highly collectible. The grill of the spoon features a beautiful design of the Eiffel Tower nestled in the Champ de Mars, the park which surrounds the tower.

This spoon is used in the preparation of a traditional French or Swiss absinthe. A traditional absinthe is prepared by pouring an ounce of absinthe into an absinthe glass, then placing the absinthe spoon on top of the glass and a sugar cube atop the spoon. Ice water is slowly dripped from a fountain, carafe or balancier onto the piece of sugar. The cold sugar water then drips from the spoon into the glass of absinthe releasing oils and perfuming the air with fennel, grand wormwood and anise. The combination also begins to turn milky white in color, as the water mixes with the anise.

RETAILERS: Each order will include a brief history of absinthe and its misconceptions. This information is intended to help your staff become more knowledgeable about absinthe to better inform your customers.
