Absinthe glasses came in many shapes and sizes and of various weights and qualities, after all absinthe was drunk in all establishments from the corner bar to the most exclusive clubs. Absinthe was served diluted with around 5 parts of water, so the glass had to be large enough to hold at least six fluid ounces of liquid. Most glasses had some kind of mark for measuring the 'dose' of absinthe - this was usually an etched line around the bottom of the glass, or an actual reservoir blown into the base of the glass. The only glasses that were made solely for absinthe drinking were the rare and beautiful reservoir glasses and the 'Pontarlier' glasses.

We can provide a absinthe glasses for every day use that are dishwasher safe or hand blown crystal glass for special occasions.
