Description
With a massive wine shortage in France in the late 19th century, absinthe- an anise-flavored, emerald green liquor -quickly became France's most fashionable drink. In French cafes, 5pm became known as "l'heure verte," or the "green hour," signaling the flow of absinthe into the late hours of the evening.

"Nicknamed la fee verte (the green fairy) for its hallucinogenic properties, absinthe was the drink of choice for all, from the wealthy bourgeoisie to the working classes. The most famous of absinthe drinkers were the Bohemians - artists, writers, and intellectuals.

Among Absinthe's insatiable enthusiasts were Vincent van Gogh, Edgar Degas, Oscar Wilde, Edgar Allan Poe, and Mark Twain, who raved about the drink''s creative and poetic effects."

very nice
Bought for my son for Christmas. It's very attractive but more importantly it works well. He made us a drink on Christmas eve and I have to say he loved his gift! It is not to big to store and the water dripped just as it should. I would recommend this fountain!

A very nice Absinthe Fountain
Was pleased with this device. Fountains are easy to come by online but quality seems to be an issue if you want to spend less than a paycheck. This was the best-looking, least-expensive, highest-quality fountain that I found. Metal taps were the deal-breaker for me; I wasn't interested in spending a lot for a fountain with plastic taps.So I've tried it out and it works great, looks nice too. Heavy and solid construction. Was packed well and shipped quick
