Alambika is proud to offer the Pontarlier Bistro absinthe glass. Tall, strong and heavy, this glass is what most absinthe aficionados consider to be the "real deal".
Made in France by La Rochère, the Pontarlier Bistro glass is the thick absinthe glass you would come across at your absinthe serving cafe during the Belle Epoque.
Being absinthe enthusiasts ourselves, we have searched for the very best selection of products available. Some of our pieces are special editions and are only available in limited quantities.
The first traces of the glassware company date back to 1475, in a place called Les Rochiers, in France. After being ruined by fire and war, it was rebuilt and in 1666 the ovens were in operation again, and they still are today. In 1960, the name officially changed to ''Cristallerie La Rochère'', and the following decades have brought refined technologies and machines to facilitate the ever expanding production. Despite this renewal, La Rochère still embraces the art of handmade and mouth-blown glassware for some of their items, and in 2008 they were honored with the title of ''Patrimoine Vivant'', which is dedicated to the French enterprises who embody the country's history and traditions.
