Absinthe Fountain 4 Spout


Price per Unit (piece): $598.00


598.This popular four spout Lady Fountain is often referred to as the La Fée Fountain (The Fairy in French). The art deco fountain features a lady in a long flowing gown holding the glass bowl used to dispense ice water in the preparation of a traditional absinthe. The classic top cover  is removable to add ice water into the glass bowl. The bowl is mouth blown and the fountains are handmade, chrome plating over brass. Fountain has four metal faucets, accommodating up to four glasses.

Absinthe fountains were used in high-end bars because of their expensive price tag. They were brought to the table, where the customer would prepare the absinthe himself. Absinthe fountains were (and still are) the preferred way to prepare absinthe, as one can perfectly control the rate of water

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 opened 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.
