The Digby English Sparkling Wine Glass by Gurasu London Gift Set
Two years in the making, this collaboration between Digby Fine English and London’s Gurasu Fine Crystal is the first glass designed specifically for the purpose of drinking English sparkling wine. Launched exclusively at Harvey Nichols, this smartly boxed Gift Set contains a pair of the new English sparkling wine glasses, as well as a bottle of Digby’s 2010 Vintage Reserve Brut, which famously beat Krug, Dom Pérignon and Gosset in a blind tasting at 67 Pall Mall hosted by industry expert Steven Spurrier. It’s impossible to think of a better gift for the English sparkling wine aficionado in your life.
Hand-blown, lead-free, dishwasher-safe, thin and light, the glasses are an absolute joy to drink from. The short three-finger stem design takes inspiration from antique Georgian cut crystal. Meanwhile, its angular lines focus English sparkling wine’s inherent energy, drive and freshness. Dipping inwards at the top, the glass traps all those delightful orchard aromatics and fits elegantly against the lip. Pleasing to the eye and full of personality, its bowl is easy to swirl and its low centre of gravity helps to prevent spillage of the elixir within.
Headed up by designer Joanna Maya, Gurasu put elegant and contemporary fine English crystalware firmly on the map. Therefore, a collaboration with England’s first true sparkling wine négociant was in their words a “no-brainer”. The pioneering Digby Fine English also make the Harvey Nichols English Sparkling Brut and Rosé NV. So now, not only do Digby and Harvey Nichols have a glass worthy of these crisp and dynamic wines, but so does the entire English sparkling wine category.
