Absinthe Spoon - Toulouse Latrec

One of the more popular absinthe spoons, this spoon is a high quality stainless steel making with great line definition. The spoon was originally designed for Toulouse Lautrec and features the insignia of Lautrec's famous initials at the top of the grill.

This spoon is used in the preparation of a traditional French or Swiss absinthe. A traditional absinthe is prepared by pouring an ounce of absinthe into an absinthe glass, then placing the absinthe spoon on top of the glass and a sugar cube atop the spoon. Ice water is slowly dripped from a fountain, carafe or balancier onto the piece of sugar. The cold sugar water then drips from the spoon into the glass of absinthe releasing oils and perfuming the air with fennel, grand wormwood and anise. The combination also begins to turn milky white in color, as the water mixes with the anise.
