I've had my heart set on a balancier for a long time.  I generally only ever drink absinthe alone, so a fountain is far too large and expensive, and I believe I've read on here that balanciers drip more slowly and get better flavors out of many absinthes, even Lucid.  So it seems like the perfect way to go, rather than, say, a fountain or a brouilleur.  So I figured I'd get the Lucid balancier gift set, as that would basically equate to a thirty dollar balancier and a thirty dollar bottle of decent absinthe.  But I cannot, for the life of me, find a store selling them.  I thought one would turn up in stores over the holidays, but I never found one.  I've looked online, but it looks like most sites that can actually ship alcohol don't carry the gift set.  Any suggestions?  Are there different brands of balanciers that work as well as the Lucid, that I could order without ordering any absinthe?  I saw an Lucid balancier on Ebay over the summer, but I was short on cash, and din't buy it; I've regretted it ever since.

 

Ideas?

Yup, Absinthedevil.com is great. Bryan's a solid guy, and is really on top of customer service. In addition, he's the man responsible for
creating today's absinthe Butterfly, distilled by CAB. It's a good place to find modern absinthe accessories.

Ah,yes, I would go with the absinthedevil. 

I thought you were looking for the lucid model specifically.

 

The one at absinthedevil looks much nicer.than the lucid.

For the see saw balancier, it is the one at the bottom of the page Joe linked, or here http://www.absinthed...ncier_p_17.html
