    Features
    • Reproduction of vintage 19th century Belle Epoque fountain
    • Handmade of brass and finished with a chrome plating and mouth blown glass
    • The top cover has the classic “acorn” top and is removable to add ice water into the glass bowl
    • Fountain has two metal faucets, accommodating one to two glasses at the same time
    • Metal faucets operate independently allowing a very small drip to a small stream
    • Proper use consists of pouring an ounce of absinthe into an absinthe glass, then placing an absinthe spoon on top of the glass and a sugar cube atop the spoon
    • The lid of the fountain is removed and fresh water and ice is added into the glass bowl
    • The spigot is slightly turned and the ice water is slowly dripped from the fountain onto the piece of sugar
    • The cold sugar water then drips from the spoon into the glass of absinthe releasing oils and perfuming the air with fennel, grand wormwood and anise
    • The combination also begins to turn milky white in color, as the water mixes with the anise
    • Refresh water before each use
    • Drink ratio varies from 1 part absinthe, to between 3 to 5 parts water, depending on one’s preference
    • Simple assembly required

    Great addition - flow problem with one spigot, though
    This fountain is a work of art. It really looks great. It is all heavy metal (chrome-plated brass) and glass - not a bit of annoying plastic in it. However, one of my two spigots barely even drips. I will have to try to resolve that somehow. On the first try (with the good spigot), my serving of absinthe turned out perfectly using a slow dripping flow onto the cube and spoon. This fountain looks just like a four spigot one pictured in the Wikipedia absinthe article.

    This looks exactly like the absinthe fountain of the Wikipedia article. It's not made of plastic, either.
