Product Description

Bonnecaze & Cie Long Absinthe Spoon No:2: Kitchen & Dining. These less common spoons normally have a spoon bowl (like a teaspoon) and a sugar holder built into the handle. Absinthe spoons have been around for hundreds of years. Originally invented in France and Switzerland the spoons were used to properly prepare one’s absinthe. An absinthe spoon is a perforated or slotted spoon that is used to dissolve a sugar cube in a glass of absinthe, usually to sweeten the drink and counteract its mild bitterness. The bowl of the spoon is normally flat, with a notch in the handle where it rests on the rim of the glass. Originating circa the 1860s, absinthe spoons were often stamped with brand names or logos as advertising, much like modern alcohol paraphernalia. Sometimes they were sold as tourist items; for example, some might be shaped like the Eiffel Tower, for example the spoon Eiffel Tower No:14, which was made for the inauguration of the building in the year 1889. Absinthe spoons also come shaped like ice tea spoons, these types are less traditional. With these spoons one must flip the spoon over and rest it on the glass, placing the sugar in the grill on the handle.
