This popular mouth blown piece is an exact replica of the legendary Pontarlier Absinthe Glass, but without the facet cuts. (If you are looking for a facet cut Pontarlier, please get in touch with us!)
Originally named after the glass first appeared in a late 19th century advertisement for the absinthe producer Pernod Fils, which featured its hometown newspaper from Pontarlier, France (see photo). The small, sleepy town of Pontarlier was once the largest maker of absinthe in the world and home to who where considered the best absinthe makers in the world. Pernod Fils, thought to be the best of the best, was the first to take up production there.
This glass is the perfect companion to our Absinthe glass fountains.
The glass is made in the same proportions as an original piece, including the reservoir. The reservoir is where is absinthe is poured and measured. Reservoirs in absinthe glasses tend to vary greatly depending on the size of the glass. As an absinthe is made to one's taste, the ratio of absinthe to water generally ranges from 1 part absinthe to 3 - 5 parts water.
