This water carafe for absinthe has been specially commissioned by Absinthes.com
A reproduction of an absinthe carafe from over 100 years ago, the small spout or beak allows for exact control over the drip, making it possible to get the perfect louche, to an even greater degree than with an absinthe fountain! Its shape, designed specifically for preparing absinthe, allows for fine control of the water flow without spilling water or ice.
We have gone through a painstaking prototyping process to ensure the carafes were just the right size and shape, and we are thrilled with the final result. It's hard to imaging using any other carafe now.
Handblown glass, made by artisans in Europe. The finest absinthe carafe available anywhere.
Carafe is beautiful and is perfect to drip or stream; small imperfections around the rim and in the glass show that it really is hand-blown while adding character without detracting from its pretty aesthetic.

Fantastic carafe that is suitable for everyday use.

Much sturdier than I expected. The steady, thin stream is perfect. If you want to put ice cubes in this one, you will need small ice cubes. This is the last carafe I will ever need -- provided I don't break it like I did the last one. In which case, I will just have to fork it out for another one of these! Recommended highly.
