Sounds like it has potential for demonstrations/introductions to absinthe. If anyone were inclined to do that sort of thing.

A little technological fix to a spiritual problem.

I like the shape.


Me, too.

Sort of a modified version of the traditional Scottish thistle ale glass.

You got a problem with that?

Absinthe makes me a different man. Why shouldn't he also have his two glasses ?
Unless Absomphe-related, if it's about old things, you can ask me

Not bad, but for that much, I'd have to see the rest of the fountane. :twitchsmile:

Very nice!

Thank you. :cheers:
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

I received a bubble glass (and that awesome "stream" reproduction carafe with my last order from ADC. Like many have said... the opening was so very small - impossible to drain unless the glass was shaken violently upside down. That's no way to treat fine absinthe!

 

So I took my Dremel to the damn thing and ground out the bubble reservoir opening  ;) - now it works like a charm!

I had the same problem. I ground it with a dremel and it got close to being adequate, but when I tried to get it just a bit more diameter open it shattered on me. To their credit, absinthes.com is sending me a replacement (which is supposed to be checked out before shipping). Apparently they've had some problems with undersized openings since they are handblown. One of the comments on the site refers to it as well.

Nice on them to send a new one! I got mine as a "freebie" so figured if it shattered or cracked from the tooling that it wouldn't be a real loss... (but I would have been sad, inside)

Now that you have it working properly, how do you like it?

It's definitely an interesting way to form a louche - I really enjoy the "flame" effect both in the bubble and the glass proper. Found that it's a good way to coax a finicky louche out as well ;)

Same here a while back. Good folks they are.

 

I really like these much better though. Shorter, easier to drink from, and no drilling necessary. And as Joseph stated, the bubble glasses really do put on quite the mezmerizing show.   :dribble:

The room it smelled heavy of drinkin',  

and the sad silent song, made the hour twice as long,

as I waited for that sun to go sinkin'.

Do want! :dribble: As the years go by here, it's a slippery slope of Absinthania purchases, oh just a glass, a Brouillie, a Balancier here, then boom! A curio cabinet to put it all in! What a slippery slope indeed! :shock:

I won't even let myself think about how much money I've wasted invested in absinthiana in recent months, but I am delighted with everything I have acquired. I'm a collector by nature and I really enjoy absinthe that much more when I use antique or very fine modern accouterments. Silly, perhaps, but it gives me great pleasure.
