Taking you back into the Belle Epoque. The preparation of absinthe is an art – and the absinthe spoon an essential utensil: After pouring a measure of absinthe into a glass, rest the spoon across the rim. Place a sugar cube on top. Gently drip iced water on to the sugar, which will then slowly dissolve and flow through the absinthe spoon into the absinthe below.

The quintessential absinthe accoutrement are perforated spoons for holding the sugar cube over the glass. Usually made from plated brass, tin or nickel, they are found in an extraordinarily wide range of designs. This section includes some particularly interesting spoons including an undocumented absinthe spoon made in the USA circa 1910, the so-called Boulenger spoon, an unusually heavy silverplate Les Trous, a fine publicity spoon for Absinthe Pernot, and a very beautiful and scarce Les Feuilles Les Trous #2.

Absinthe spoons have been around for over 200 years and yet have remained relatively unchanged since its introduction during the Belle Epoque, the height of absinthe popularity. If you look, you can find an absinthe spoon today just like the one your great, great grandfather used to prepare his absinthe. Absinthe contains wormwood which can lend a slightly bitter taste to the drink. Sugar is added to curb the bitterness and enhance the flavor of the herbs and botanicals in the liquor

Absinthiana are the accoutrements surrounding the drink absinthe and its preparation. Originally, absinthe was served in standard stemmed wine or water glasses and water was added from a simple carafe. But as its popularity grew so did the variety of implements used, such as specialty glasses and complex brouilleurs. In the period since absinthe was made illegal in the US, antique dealers have seen dramatic increases in the prices of these artifacts there
