'Absinthe Sucre' Wrapped Sugar Cubes



During the pre-ban era (before 1915), it was rare to find someone who drank absinthe without first sweetening it with sugar. Hence the reason why there are so many antique accoutrements and ways to add sugar to absinthe.

These private labeled sugar cubes are the same found in cafés, bars and restaurants throughout Europe.

Absinthe is, and has always been, made to taste to one’s own liking, therefore the amount of sugar used is purely by preference of the drinker.
