An essential for the authentic French ritual, these absinthe sugar cubes bring out the best in the Green Fairy.


    Overview

    An essential for the authentic French ritual, these absinthe sugar cubes bring out the best in the Green Fairy. Each of these sugar cubes is specifically designed for absinthe. Sugar cubes made to the industry standards are tall and firmly packed, while these cubes are lower in height and less pressed, making them melt perfectly to give you the ultimate absinthe experience.

    Features
    • Specifically designed for the absinthe ritual
    • The pressed cubed sugar is the perfect way of adding sugar to your absinthe
    • Because of the high proof of alcohol, sugar will not dissolve in absinthe, it is for this reason that water is slowly dripped onto a sugar cube which then enables the sugar water to mix more easily with the absinthe
    • It was highly frowned upon to drink absinthe without sugar during the pre-ban era
    • The sugar is also used to cut the bitterness of absinthe
    • Lower in height and less pressed than standard sugar cubes
    • Each set contains 20 wrapped sugar packets
    • Each packet contains 2 European sized white sugar cubes
    • Made in Europe
    • Sold and used in cafes and bistros throughout France and Italy
    • Please note that these sugar cubes are not absinthe flavored

    Need this to go with my absinthe from Germany.

    This sugar is finer than regular sugar and makes louching easier. It's the type of sugar that was in use during the "Belle Epoch".

    I make slumped Absinthe bottle serving trays and use these cubes as part of the bottleneck decoration.. I also love to drink Absinthe and super enjoy the visual procedure associated with this activity. I have ordered these cubes in the past and LOVE them!

    I use it for my Absinthe drinks
    Armand E on Dec 5, 2016
    This type of sugar cube is the only one that dissolves completely in the cold water stream used for preparing absinthe.

    Is the wrapper green or white? I want white
    A shopper on Jun 6, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: The wrappers are green as shown in the picture
    Can you use these cubes in an Old-Fashioned?
    A shopper on Feb 27, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I'm sure you could. As soon as liquid touches them they lose their form and just turn into sugar. They would muddle just fine.

    But really, there is an aesthetic quality to these that makes them perfect for dripping water through them into Absinthe, but I'm not sure there is much more to it than that. You might get the same flavor out of regular sugar.
