She kissed me softly, and the numbness set in. She tasted of licorice, and was cold to my skin. We danced slowly at first, getting to know one another. She was familiar but different, and unlike any other. I knew I couldn’t leave her, she grabbed a hold of my heart. From this day forward, we would never be apart. It was my first time, I held on just barely. I fell in love with her that night, my beautiful Green Fairy.

THE ABSINTHE BALANCIER FAQ (2ND PRIZE)
WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?
WHAT IS THE POINT OF HAVING A BALANCIER?
Because absinthe releases different aromatics at different levels of dilution, it is very important to gradually dilute absinthe, so as to release all of its aromatics. If you dilute absinthe too quickly, you will miss out on its aromatics.
Gradually diluting absinthe is hard to do manually and requires practice. For this task, the balancier is an indispensable tool. It was invented over a century ago to make gradual dilution of absinthe nearly effortless. The balancier is sometimes called the Cusenier “Auto Verseur” or see-saw, in reference to the Cusenier model used over a century ago.
