Sample text

Thankfully, all the damaging misinformation regarding absinthe has been proven untrue, and it is again being produced and enjoyed around the world! Acknowledgements For all the support, advice, guidance, and fine absinthe, I would like to thank the following people and organizations: Clément Arnoux, Peter Schaf, David Nathan-Maister, Gwydion Stone, Brian Robinson, Eliot Shapiro, T. A. Breaux, Sonny Meadows, the Emile Pernot Distillery, Delaware Phoenix Distillery, Pacific Distillery, Ridge Distillery, the Matter-Luginbühl Distillery, Gnostalgic Spirits Distillery, Leopold Brothers, Liqueurs De France, Catskill Cellars, Drink-Up New York, the regulars at my tasting parties, Miriam MacDonald for her sound editorial advice and tolerating my countless absinthe-related ramblings, my son Connor for his sharp eye on various “does this look better than this” questions, and all who support the comeback, production, public education, and culture of absinthe.

I’ve always loved antiques in general, and enjoy quality absinthe; this book grew naturally out of that combination. The following pages feature an array of antiques that were commonly employed in the serving and preparing of absinthe in its heyday, and include brief descriptions of their use. For this reason, this book also serves as a way of demonstrating absinthe’s basics. Also included, are various absinthe-related items. You may notice that some pieces show signs of use, while others look nearly new.

The inner highlight ring is in gold. Saucers that saw high use often show signs of wear on the edges, as is the case with these purple accents. Another saucer in the same style sports yellow accents and a higher price per drink. Elegant and rare, this pretty saucer features details in orange and gold. Various stamps on the saucer bottoms indicate where these were created, and the names of those who made them. A stack of small unmarked saucers waits for glasses. Well used and showing wear, they still have charm and purpose after more than a century has passed.
