The Pontarlier absinthe glass is one of the classic models used in the Belle Époque. Several absinthe distilleries were established in the town of Pontarlier, in the department of Doubs in France, including Pernod Fils, the oldest and famous of them.
The attribution of the name "Pontarlier" to this glass format originates from an advertising panel made from a painting by Charles Maire, a local painter.
The contemporary version takes exactly the shape of the traditional glass so often encountered in the many French bistros of the early twentieth century.
This model has the particularity of having a 'starry' finish, which gives it an elegant and unique style.
Note that its traditional manufacture by hand can cause bubbles, variations and sometimes even slight differences in size. If you want a more standardized version, we suggest the Bistro model (in molded glass).
