Continually innovative, RIEDEL presents this new collection in collaboration with North American spirits specialist Zane Harris. The new collection answers the need for professional cocktail glassware in homes, with six glasses perfected to cater for thousands of cocktails.

The glasses are based on the traditional serves for seven classic cocktails: The Old Fashioned, Manhattan, Daiquiri, Sour, Peasant, Buck, and Julep. Working in partnership with RIEDEL, Harris created each glass giving specific attention to its size, shape, volume, and capacity for ice. The series has been deliberately designed to accommodate both standard ice cube dimensions and the new large-format ice, so cocktail lovers have the perfect glasses on hand for impressive drinks.

RIEDEL CEO and President Maximilian J Riedel says, “RIEDEL has always been a great proponent in helping to identify consumer demand for better stemware. Every Riedel series is the result of our keen pulse on consumer tastes and a drive for constant innovation to meet these demands," says Maximilan. "RIEDEL Bar Drink Specific Glassware is no different.”

The series has already debuted into the hospitality sector and can now be found in some of New Zealand's top bars.
