The Wormwood Absinthe Spoon is among the most desired and highly sought-after spoons by absinthe aficionados. It showcases the signature grand wormwood plant (Artemisia absinthium) design. On the original spoons, a banner was sometimes woven through the plant with promotional text. The spoon bottom has a small ridged area which served to break apart sugar from a sugar loaf before sugar cubes were in circulation. Exact replicas of the 19th century design, these spoons are used in the preparation of French or Swiss absinthe. Preparation involves a glass, spoon, sugar cube, and ice water. As the water drips onto the cube, it releases essential oils and scents of fennel, grand wormwood, and anise. The mix turns a milky white in color. Stainless Steel. Will not tarnish. Dishwasher safe. Measures 6.5" (16.5 cm) in length.
