Absinthe Glasses (Set Of 2)


In Stock
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.

Etched decanter glasses hold tempting absinthe once favoured by historical figures. 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, Pablo Picasso, Edgar Allan Poe, and Mark Twain, who raved about the drink''s creative and poetic effects.
