The Tuppenny Absinthe Fountain – Party like it’s 1899!
150 years ago, no hip bohemian hang out was complete without an absinthe fountain, so we are pleased to be able to bring you one, and dispel the myths surrounding this fine old spirit. Lengthened with iced water and sugar in this most traditional way, it becomes a deeply complex and satisfying drink. Definitely not for smashing back in shots. Sip. Savour. Smile.
