Elegant simplicity itself, and excellent value for money. Read the whole description
Ice can be added to the water in the reservoir, creating the perfect chilled temperature for absinthe.
Rather than emptying the fountain straight after using it, it is recommended to leave it overnight, avoiding any small risk, however rare, of thermal shock to the glass parts.
Contrary to what one might assume, absinthe fountains actually arrived very late in its history, carafes having been used before. It is thought that they were introduced by the absinthe-makers Cusenier in 1886, trying to give absinthe a healthy image. Water at the time was not the best quality, and so the fountains also contained a filter to remove impurities.

Beautiful to look at and made of glass which gives it an authentic feel. Steady for its height. The taps is made from plastic though which cheapens the experience for me. The taps are also a bit flimsy, but usually they do what they are supposed to do. I haven't used the fountain extensively so I don't know if the taps will work in the long run, I'm a bit worried about them I must confess.

This is a great little fountain (yes it is quite small) but, this is ideal for the modern home. It is made out of glass so it is quite sturdy, the taps are plastic but they seem fine and they work well.
This is an ideal fountain for one or two people would be great to use outside on a summers day.

Basic structure, little ornamentation. Good functionality. The taps are slightly crooked on my product, but nevertheless great value for a low price.

Great value for money. I've used it alot and I'm very pleased with it. It's very decorative and has a slight aristocratic feel to it while still remaining simplistic and modern in that sense.
Great product, can only give it thumbs up.
