RIEDEL Bar Drink Specific Mixing Glass
The Mixing Glass has been specifically created for stirring cocktails. Expertly designed to pour easily while providing the perfect dimensions for liquids and ice. As a simple rule of thumb (remembering that rules are meant to be broken), cocktails made with clear spirits and liqueurs should be stirred in a mixing glass such as this. Cocktails containing fruit juice, dairy or egg whites should be shaken in a classic cocktail shaker. It’s worth noting that James Bond is the most famous case of getting this twisted because most bartenders agree that a Martini should be stirred not shaken. We recommend using this when you want to mix up an Old Fashioned, Sazerac, Manhattan, Martini, Negroni or Rusty Nail like a pro. Then raise a glass and say “Cheers!” to better cocktails.
Riedel’s Drink Specific Glassware is part of their Barware Collection. This innovative and professional glass series was developed in collaboration with the cocktail and spirits specialist Zane Harris. Together they have fine-tuned and tweaked the classic shapes to maximise the enjoyment for enthusiasts. The attention to detail on the size, shape, volume and capacity for ice of these machine-made glasses is what makes them such a pleasure to mix into and drink out of. These glasses were intended for the world’s finest cocktail bars but have now been made available to the public so that you can enjoy them at home.
The Riedel family can trace their trade in luxury glassware back to Johann Cristoph born in 1673. Now in the hands of the 11th generation Maximilian Josef Riedel, this multi-award-winning family-run business has become as entwined with the world of fine wine as the vines themselves. Combining science, the experience of some of the world’s finest palates and a pinch of magic, they design their glorious glasses to enhance the bouquet, texture, flavour, finish and pleasure delivered by specific grape varieties and drinks. Anyone lucky enough to attend one of their tasting events will be converted for life. The adage of having ‘the right tool for the right job’ has never been more fitting than when enjoying wine or spirits from a Riedel.
