At least the big one will allow one to drink a properly prepared absinthe, louched and all.

You got a problem with that?

One purchases an item because it appeals to them. One then purchases the second item because it goes with the first one. When one purchases the third similar item, it then becomes a collection. :devil:

I would consider purchasing one like the smaller one with flowers on it strictly for aesthetic purposes, as you said, looking good on a shelf.

The second purchase was the huge one with its own brouilleur, which I added to an order one drunken night just because it was so freakish that I had to have it. I thought that, like a preserved baby in a bottle of rum, it would look weirdly cool stuffed into the back of a bookshelf corner. Actually, it does.


Next time, just get one of these :devil:

I have never entirely understood the practicalities, or indeed the point, of sipping Absinthe through a pipe.

It does indeed make you more intoxicated. I Have the sebor pipe and if you premix your absinthe and pour it isn't really all that bad....I use a pancake syrup pourer that I took from denny's when I was being rather surreptitious, but, it was for absinthe so it had to be done, and, I am a rebel... :laf:

I met a really nice gal last year, that insisted that her "bonque" was not only a conversation piece at socials, but also a way to keep her consumption (the amount of alcohol she drank, not the disease, ABSOMPHE) in check.
Personally, I'd just rather not be seen drinking from a pipe, butt...
she seemed sincere enough.

I can see why she might say that. It just seems so AlcoPoppy to me though!

How did you know what I was wasting away from, Sandpeddlar?

Hello all! Glad to find this discussion out here - I had never seen or heard of these gadgets before, so I was suspicious, and figured this would be the place to find out for sure.  I saw one for sale yesterday at the Loved to Death store in San Francisco (the store featured on the SF-version of Oddities on the Science Channel, if that helps?).  They didn't know much about it, but also had lots of fountains that I've only ever seen coming out of the Czech Republic so I was doubly suspicious.  Hopefully they won't show it on the TV show and say something that isn't true!

:arrr:

Perhaps with enough crushed ice, I could see taking tiny sips of concentrated absinthe and savoring a pipe-full on a hot day. Might be refreshing!

Actually, drinking a nice gin or digestif over ice from one of these might be rather nice as well. They are far from necessary, probably a gimmick at best, but I think they are sort of cool too.
