Description of the products

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.


Pictured with our exclusive bubble reservoir absinthe glass


Especially commissioned by Absinthes.com, the Bubble Reservoir Absinthe Glass is a delight to behold. We are incredibly proud how it has turned out, after almost a year of prototypes and improvements. The Bubble Reservoir Glass was directly inspired by a glass in the collection of David Nathan Maister, renowned absinthe historian. This type of glass was relatively rare, even when it was most widely available in the 1880s and 1890s.
The bubble reservoir serves as a dose, to accurately pour the right amount of absinthe without needing a measure. Chilled water is then added as usual, usually three to five parts. A pleasing weight in the hand, without being overly hefty. These glasses are hand made (blown by mouth) by the makers in Europe. The artisan process captures some tiny bubbles and imperfections in the glass, making for a seriously beautiful effect.

The bubble glass in use, Pernod Fils Tarragona vintage 1950s absinthe, and our exclusive reproduction vintage absinthe carafe.

Exquisite heavy blown glass. I use the carafe all the time just for ice water. The glasses are lovely to hold and make a musical bubbling sound when the Absinthe level is just right.

Excellent value! The glass is heavy and well-made. I almost actually prefer using this carafe than a drip fountain, but it does take a bit of time to get used to. The glasses work great, but due to the heavy glass, can be an annoyance to some. Personally, it did not mind.

An excellent way to start off your glassware set if you want something different than a drip fountain.

Was loving it until the carafe was broken by accident, glasses feel a little heavy and haven't quite mastered even mixing from the bubble reservoir but still like the design.
