Riedel Optical O Gin Set, four-part
The perfect gin glass: light as a feather, elegant and dishwasher safe.
The spirits set of the "Optical O" series by Riedel includes four fine gin glasses. When it comes to decorating the trendy gin and tonic, this glass gives free rein to creativity.
It was only a matter of time before the gin and tonic had its own special glass. Today, based on the Spanish model, Copa glasses are used, i.e. balloon glasses, so that the trendy drink is served and garnished with all kinds of botanicals. Before these noble drinking vessels became unofficial gin and tonic glasses, gin and tonic were poured into commercially available tumblers. However, the tumbler glass allowed less freedom in terms of decoration and did not look quite as chic and trendy.
In 2004, the glass manufacturer from Tyrol, represented all over the world, caused a stir with the stemless "O" series from Riedel. This voluminous gin and tonic glass was designed in 2019, which, due to the narrower rim of the mouth, bundles the taste nuances on the way to different sensory organs.
Due to the bulbous shape, the cocktail is excellently staged. If you like to add herbal branches, citrus slices, pieces of fruit, spices or cinnamon sticks to the gin and tonic, you can definitely let off steam here.
