The World-Spirits Glass – for the big, wide world of spirits
In the beginning was the hand-crafted and hand-blown glass in the WOB design, as shapely as it was functional, tailor-made for wine, water, whisky etc. Top-quality, elegant products, which inevitably (had to) come at a price. This provided Wolfram Ortner with the challenge of coming up with the styling of a new spirits glass.
Alongside the satisfying spread of the spirits culture, the trendy products like distillates to accompany cigars or coffee, but above all growing number of lovers of spiritual pleasures grows the need for glasses which are all-purpose – but most of all also affordable. Not everyone can or even wants to acquire the requisite glass for each product. Reasons of space, among others, argue against such a glass collection, as we know from the wine sector, which has culminated in the uncontrolled growth of the designer glass.
This is where Wolfram Ortner’s new World-Spirits Glass fills a major gap in the market – to be precise, a handy 18.5 centimetre-high gap. With its ideal form, its maximum surface and the sophisticated angle of rim it stands elegantly on the table, fits tidily in the dishwasher and, due to it being machine-produced, is very comfortable on the pocket – only EURO 8,20 each!
When it comes to talking about the advantages there are three particular features worthy of attention:
- It suits every array of aromas – from apricot schnapps to slivovitz, from calvados to whisky.
- It brings out the individual character – regardless whether it is fruity charm or oak-aged heroism.
- It is the perfect companion – for the young jetsetter as well as the mature grandee.
Anyone who enjoys high spiritual pleasures will be rapidly won over by the all-rounder quality of this glass. Equally elegant and chic in the home as in the top restaurant, in the friendly Paris bistro as in the fashionable New York bar.
The sprits world is wide, with home-produced products from Mexico to Moscow, from China to Chicago. All of them should be able to accentuate their style, their spectrum of aromas and flavours – a challenge for one single glass, but one that the “small but beautiful” WS glass overcomes adeptly.
Prices for WS-Glass 18.5: 7.30 EUR (Recommended retail price). It is possible to have the firm’s logo printed on the body of the glass.
