Original Design Absinthe Spoon

Posted on March 7th, 2010 by absinthejack

This little beauty might more acurately be described as a cross between a spoon and a grille. Talented artist and good friend Chris Olson is responsible for the design and production. It’s made of 3 ounces of pure silver and features  a unique recessed sugar cube holder which allows the sugar to dissolve more thoroughly, resulting in less in the bottom of the glass. Chris, at one time, worked for special effects wizard Stan Winston. As Master Designer for the prestigious Molina Fine Jewelry, Chris also did restoration work on some of the artifacts retrieved from the Titanic. Currently only 3 of these exist. I own one, Chris has one, and one of  Molina’s very wealthy clients, who is also a big absinthe fan, has the 3rd one. They may be available to the public at a future date.

That’s right! Believe it or not one of the world’s most pretigious magazines, National Geographic, had a 1 page article on the legalization of absinthe in the US. It’s in the July 2008 issue on page 32. It’s got a great picture of absinthe in a bubble reservoir glass with the sugar cube on fire.  If you go to their website they also have a short video on absinthe. Check it out!
