It is made of borosilicate glass and cork, with details in metallic enamel. Golden graduation marks every two ounces of liquid show the standard measure for a glass of liqueur. The capacity of the container is 70cl, or twelve glasses. The angled lines help to visualize the amount of liqueur at the moment it is being served. After a few drinks, it is possible to know how many of the twelve portions are left, to continue this ritual of sharing a precious drink with friends.
