RIEDEL BAR DRINK SPECIFIC GLASSWARE

INNOVATIVE BARWARE FOR PROFESSIONAL USE

Continually innovative and at the forefront of design, RIEDEL presents the RIEDEL BAR DRINK SPECIFIC GLASSWARE collection, made in collaboration with spirits specialist Zane Harris. This new collection answers the need for cocktail-specific glassware among restaurants and bars with six glasses perfected for thousands of cocktails. The glasses are based off the traditional serves for seven classic cocktails: The Old Fashioned, Manhattan, Daiquiri, Sour, Peasant, Buck, and Julep.

“RIEDEL has always been a great proponent in helping to identify and create consumer and hospitality demand for better stemware,” notes RIEDEL CEO and President Maximilian J. Riedel. “Every RIEDEL series has resulted from our keen pulse on consumer tastes and a drive for constant innovation to meet these demands, and this range is no different.”

Each unique glass in the RIEDEL BAR DRINK SPECIFIC GLASSWARE collection is crafted in their family-owned factories. The series has already debuted into the hospitality sector and can now be found in some of Australia's top bars.

North American spirit specialist Zane Harris is known for his mixology at cocktail meccas including Dutch Kills, Maison Premiere, and Rob Roy. Working in partnership with RIEDEL, Harris created each glass giving specific attention to its size, shape, volume and capacity for ice, a concept in its totality never before explored by any glassware company.

“Ice has the greatest influence in glassware design as it is in practically every drink, not just the cocktail,” notes Harris. “Drink Specific Glassware is designed to seamlessly answer two of hospitality’s greatest frustrations: liquid displacement and the distorted consumer perception of being underserved. Created to accommodate both 'large format' ice as well as standard ice cubes - allowing both types to either fall centred or side by side - plus factor in bartender efficiency, guest perception, and pour cost. We even consider carbon footprint reduction in our designs. This is the only line of glassware that combines all of these important issues and gives you peace of mind that these glasses were made with your business in mind.”

SMALL IN SIZE, BIG IN APPEAL

MINI DECANTERS

LIMITED EDITION

Amadeo, Horn, Ayam, Curly Pink, Mamba, Cornetto – the list reads like a roll-call of bestselling decanters from RIEDEL. Known for their exclusive design, these pieces are now also available in a mini version.

The RIEDEL Mini Limited Edition Decanters hold exactly half a bottle of wine (375ml) and are a wonderful alternative to the regular size – and not only as an answer to storage issues. Ranging in size from 183mm to 282mm tall, they accommodate the current trend for half bottles in restaurants.

RIEDEL Mini Decanters are both exquisite and functional – their design is guaranteed to generate that wow effect. The decanters are hand-blown and handcrafted from crystal glass in the RIEDEL factory in Kufstein.

                                                  

NEW ADDITIONS TO THE "M" COLLECTION

BACK TO BASICS

The “M” decanter collection was first presented in 2017, a series that allows for gentle decanting and is perfect for more mature red or young white wines. Inspired by elaborately finished cognac and whisky bottles, Maximilian J. Riedel has reinterpreted these impressions for this collection.

“We’re going back to basics,” says Maximilian. “RIEDEL decanters with a double and triple-decanting function have a high level of functionality and are perfect for connoisseurs. Some people, however, may find these decanters too complicated and intricate to handle. With our ‘M’ decanters, we are offering an alternative.”

Now introducing MEDOC and MOSEL, two beautiful new decanters in the RIEDEL “M” decanter collection. MEDOC and MOSEL’s tall and slim blown-effect form makes the decanters easy to handle. They are ideal for more mature red wines, young white wines, champagne and orange wine, and they are intimidating for day to day service.

The design is a clear bow to the current trend for casual dining, explains Maximilian J. Riedel, designer of these new decanters. The decanters are hand-blown and hand-crafted from crystal glass in the RIEDEL factory in Kufstein. They are easy to handle, fit perfectly in the refrigerator door and - best of all - are dishwasher safe!

Maximillian Performance Sauvignon Blanc
STUNNING AND FUNCTIONAL

PERFORMANCE SAUVIGNON BLANC

Technologically advanced and user-friendly, the RIEDEL Performance collection now includes a brand new glass for Sauvignon Blanc.

“Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most popular grape varieties in the world,” Maximilian J. Riedel explains. “In a workshop with winemakers, we learned that wines are becoming increasingly concentrated so they need glasses with larger volumes to develop optimally. The logical step for us was to add this shape to our RIEDEL Performance series.”

Following numerous studies on flavour, aroma and colour of wines, results showed that this new glass has a positive effect on the perception of the bouquet and flavour, which they account to Performance's unique optic effect. Not only does it have pleasing visual appeal, but it also allows the wine to open up and fully develop all the subtle nuances of its aroma.

THIS LITTLE PIGGY WENT TO THE WINE BAR

Unlike previous coloured iterations of this piece, these new decanters are not limited to a single line. A new manufacturing technique has made it possible to add colour to the entire surface of the decanter, resulting in a new and modern aesthetic.

RIEDEL Decanter Amadeo Performance
A DESIGN ICON COMPLETES THE RIEDEL PERFORMANCE RANGE

Performance AMADEO

The Amadeo decanter has been one of RIEDEL’s iconic decanters since it was introduced in 2006. Like other icons, Amadeo has undergone several re-interpretations while always keeping its typical lyre-shaped design. 

This year, the award-winning RIEDEL Performance glass series will be complemented by an Amadeo decanter, optically manufactured with a line in the signature green colour of the series.

Not only does this piece have a unique look and feel, but like all RIEDEL decanters, it is unique in its function. The decanter is hand-blown and hand-crafted from crystal glass in the RIEDEL factory in Kufstein, and is an absolute must-have.
