This popular Eiffel Tower spoon is part of a small selection of 4 absinthe spoons originally made for the introduction of the Eiffel Tower at the Exposition Universelle, the World's Fair held in Paris, France in 1889. The year was also the 100th anniversary of the storming of the Bastille, which began the French Revolution. The original antique spoon design is highly sought after. This is an exact reproduction of that late 19th century absinthe spoon.

This spoon is used in the preparation of a traditional French or Swiss absinthe. A traditional absinthe is prepared by pouring an ounce of absinthe into an absinthe glass, then placing the absinthe spoon on top of the glass and a sugar cube atop the spoon. Ice water is slowly dripped from a fountain, carafe or balancier onto the piece of sugar. The cold sugar water then drips from the spoon into the glass of absinthe releasing oils and perfuming the air with fennel, grand wormwood and anise. The combination also begins to turn milky white in color, as the water mixes with the anise.
