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 BARWARE 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.”
