Like a martini glass or short-sided tumbler, no cocktail glass collection is complete without a highball. Our new series, RIEDEL Bar Drink Specific Glassware, has been designed to answer the need for professional cocktail glassware in homes, and of course includes an elegant Highball glass for mixing up some of your favourites.
The RIEDEL Drink Specific Glassware Highball is a glass tumbler that can hold 310ml in volume. Larger than the Old Fashioned (Lowball), this long drink glass is ideal for serving classic highballs and mixed drinks.
Highballs are traditionally designed for drinks made from a spirit and usually a carbonated drink. RIEDEL's Highball glass is designed to hold standard ice cubes as well as the larger ice cubes that are becoming increasingly popular, so there are no limits to your serving creations.
