Absinthe Spoon Bistro Classique

Bistro Classique Spoon

This spoon is the timeless classic of all absinthe spoons, the item that would rest patiently every day until 5 o'clock in the afternoon, awaiting the arrival of the so-called "Green Hour", or L'Heure Verte in French.

This was the time when Parisians stopped, put away the stresses of the day and just enjoyed a pre-dinner glass of absinthe in the sidewalk cafes of the elegant boulevards.

Leaf of Artemisia Spoon

Leaf of Artemisia

Another classic of absinthe spoons, this time in the shape of the leaf of Artemisia Absinthium, the main ingredient of absinthe.

The curious effects of this plant have fascinated humanity since at least 3,000 BC. The Egyptians prized its healing powers, as did the Greeks and Romans. In the Middle Ages, artemisia wine became popular. But it wasn't until 1769 when the Swiss Henriod sisters distilled artemisia and created the absinthe we know today.

Spoon Absinthium 1792

Absinthium 1792

This spoon celebrates the year 1792, the year when commercial absinthe production began under the direction of Major Dubied, the founder of the famed Pernod absinthe dynasty.

Absinthe was invented two decades before that by the Henriod sisters of Neuchatel, Switzerland. The enterprising sisters made and sold their "elixir to cure all maladies" for over 20 years before agreeing to sell the recipe to Dubied for larger commercialization.

La Fée Satanique Spoon

La Fée Satanique (F.S)

Absinthe has earned many nicknames, ranging from Green Goddess to Green Devil – the extremities of the moral spectrum. "What is the fascination that makes the Fairy so adorable and so terrible?" the occultist Aleisteir Crowley once asked.

The concept of La Fée Satanique ("Devil's Fairy") is thought to have originated in Germany, where absinthe was especially popular in the exotic cabarets of Berlin until its ban in 1923.

The Eye Spoon

The Eye Spoon

The eye has long been a popular absinthe motif that expresses the metaphorical vision enhancing effects of the drink.

In its heyday, absinthe had profound influence on many writers, artists and intellectuals whom we now consider true visionaries ahead of their time. Rimbaud, the French rebel child poet, drank absinthe to "enhance his visions" on his quest for the true meaning of life, as did Verlaine, Hemingway, Picasso and others.

Sugar Sugar

Sugar Sugar

With four perforations in the shape of a sugar cube, this absinthe spoon is a tribute to Jakub Rad, a 19th century sugar producer of Dacice, Southern Bohemia and the inventor of the sugar cube.

Before Rad's time, sugar was sold in chunky loaves. Then, one day in 1841, his wife Julianna cut her hand while slicing a sugar loaf. Rad pondered the problem and some months later, he presented her with a loving gift of sugar cubes. The sugar cube was born.

Absinthe Spoon Les Eiffel

Les Eiffel

Originally sold as a souvenir to celebrate the completion of the Eiffel Tower in 1889, this spoon has remained a popular collectors' item ever since.

What is less known is that Gustave Eiffel, the tower's chief architect, was a keen absinthe drinker and that he also designed a spectacular historic room for the famous Combier distillery in the picturesque French town of Saumur.

Window Spoon

Window Spoon

This unusual spoon is inspired by the architecture of Art Nouveau, the turn-of-century era typified by beautiful floral motifs and ornate, flowing forms.

The ultimate goal of the Art Nouveau artist was to bring art to everyday life; to achieve this, artists set out to work on everything from architecture to furniture. Today, some of the most glorious Art Nouveau monuments stand in Paris, Vienna, Prague and Riga.

Absinthe spoons

Le Grille

This sturdy absinthe spoon is a popular choice for drinkers who like their absinthe with a little fire.

The absinthe fire ritual—which involves setting an absinthe soaked sugar cube on fire, then watching the caramel to slowly drip into a glass—is believed to have been invented in Austria where fire tongs (known as "feurzange") were traditionally used to sweeten a variety of alcoholic drinks.

Henriod Absinthe Spoon

Henriod Spoon

This eccentric spoon is a tribute to the legendary Henriod sisters and their Bon Extrait d'Absinthe, which they invented and sold as a herbal remedy in Neuchatel, Switzerland in 1769.

Theirs was the first absinthe ever made. The sisters later sold the recipe to Major Dubied who commercialized their green elixir under the name Pernod.
