In search of funnel type glass brouilleur/dripper

Recommended Posts

Yes, thank you Rob. I have one of those from abs.com, but the bowl is quite shallow and doesn't allow for a marble to sit comfortably over the hole to slow the stream to a drip. I also have a flat bottomed one from absinthe devil. I would really like to have another like the one above. The one I have now had an incident with a carafe and now has a rather large V shaped crack on one side, held together at the moment with crafters glue. It holds for now, but I know it will eventually break completely. I know a couple vendors used to sell them, but I don't see them anymore. Which I don't understand why. Being such an excellent way to louche up a glass. Was/am hoping someone here may have one they don't care for, and would like to see it go to a good home, where it will get lots of love and daily usage.

for that style and then some, go to vertdabsinthe.com, ornate and uses the ball and supported in a decorative s/steel frame that sits on the glass. Very nice but pricey.

I'm too poor to pay LDF prices. Hell, the shipping alone is three times the price of the dripper. And that large one, like the one from abs.com is about 4 inches wide. Most of my glasses are 3.5. I like symmetry in my drinking apparatus. But I wouldn't say no if someone had one of those they weren't using.

Yeah, I'm not sure what those large ones are supposed to fit...but it's certainly not built for any of my absinthe glasses.

East glasses and Cordon glasses are both quite a bit wider than many other glasses, certainly more so than generic bistro glasses.

The inner diameter of the bottom of these brouilleurs is perfect for smaller glasses like Torsadé and Pontarlier glasses. That extra half inch to the outer edge can help with the other glasses, however. The antique glass ones are petite and light weight. Some of the modern ones are quite heavy. This one is 3.25 inches wide, and only 1 inch tall, so it is not overly large in appearance.

<-------Happy camper.

 

Well old Ian at LDF hooked me up with what I was looking for, and a reasonable flat rate airmail charge, (for accessories only) and all it took was an email and a question.

Good fella right there. Superior service.
