Pair of Gift Boxed Traditional Pontarlier Absinthe Glasses

Regular price £32.00 £0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

These are traditional Pontarlier Absinthe glasses, designed with a reservoir to guide the measure of Absinthe  - the bubble at the bottom of the glass. This was designed so the barkeeper would know how much to serve, and the customer would know they were getting what they were paying for! The reservoir measures 25ml, which was the standard measure for a glass this size. This particular design is called the Pontarlier, after the small, sleepy town which was once the largest manufacturer of Absinthe in the world.

Obviously, you don't have to drink Absinthe from them: they'd work well for any short, but we think it's the height of sophistication to own your own set of glasses made to consume such a legendary and mysterious beverage - what a talking point! 

Check out the French match strikers and the glass carafes for additional absinthe inspired interior-accessory lust!

The glasses are hand blown glass and each one measures 14.6 (H) x 8.6(diameter) and holds 26.6cl

They are sold as a pair, and come in a lovely gift box, decorated in silver typography on a black back ground, and lined with a copy of an antique French bar bill.
