This magnificent ornamental absinthe fountain is a perfect reproduction of one from the 1900s.

A handmade glass reservoir sits on top of four taps in a classical rounded trefoil shape, and the lid is decorated with an acorn. Entirely made of solid brass, with the exception of the glass reservoir, of course.

Placing your glass underneath, slowly dripping chilled water into your absinthe takes you right back to the Belle Epoque.

These fountains are hand made using traditional techniques, just as they were during the Belle Epoque. With the traditional brass casting and plating used, this can mean slight grazes or imperfections in the finish.

And in the case of traditionally crafted glass, the result is a beautiful antique-looking effect with small air bubbles and lines, as opposed to the flat and featureless finish of modern machine production.

When using these fountains it's easy to find yourself forgetting what century you are in! Louche yourself an absinthe and imagine yourself transported back 150 years to a Parisian street café!

We individually test each fountain before it leaves Absinthes.com HQ to ensure everything fits together and there are no leaks.

Great fountain! Its the ultimate luxury in absinthe imbibing, so easy to get the perfect louche and sit back and watch while it happens. It was packed well and arrived safely, very well made! Fits together nicely, heavy and sturdy can get the water to drip REAL slow. Looks awesome when u fill it with ice/water and condensation occurs all over it.
Cheers

I bought this fountain for my boyfriends birthday. He was so pleased with the fountain as he had always wanted one after spending many years in France and really impressed by the design and quality of the item. It is not flimsy or unsteady and is beautifully crafted. I was also impressed by the fountain as it achieved all my expectations. It now stands proudly on the table with accessories. I would definitely recommend this fountain as a great gift.

This was a Christmas gift for my 22 year old son. A friend of mine called it the ultimate luxury item for a home bar. I can't disagree. My son was thrilled. The quality is excellent. Very sturdy. Packed very well. When we initially put it together and filled it there was a small leak. We took it apart, and put it back together making sure to tighten the base as much as possible, and voila, no more leak. Highly recommend.

It's a beauty and works great. The flow is easy to adjust and the whole thing can be taken apart and put back in its box. Great :-)

Almost perfect. Very satisfied with the performance of the fountain. Looks amazing, and feels very durable. The only downside is that it's now almost too easy to enjoy the perfect drink.

Even though I already had a glass fountain, I fell in love with this one as soon as I saw it, specially when I read it was a reproduction of a vintage piece. I adore all things vintage, so it had to be mine.

Upon receiving it I was very happy to see it came very well protected, and everything was in great condition. It was very easy to assemble (it came in pieces), and it is absolutely gorgeous once put together.

I filled it with tap water to see how the robinettes worked, and to check if there were any leaks. No leaks at all, and the robinettes work beautifully; you can get tiny drops that you can see fall one by one, or a small current.

I still have not used it with my absinthe, as I am waiting for a special occasion, but I am very looking forward to it.

P.S. I love this fountain so much I made a replica in miniature for my 1:12 scale dollhouse. Definitely a conversation starter!

This is a georgeous, well made fountain. The glass bowl is different to the larger (4 tap) units and has a beautiful soft smooth look. I'm sorry I bought it for a gift now, because I would prefer it to my 4 tapper once I saw it.
As I mainly enjoy an absinthe with my partner, or my son, or my friend, the practicality of a slightly smaller unit would be very convenient. And I could still get out the "4" when we get together. I may have to buy another just for myself!
