Glassware supplier ADI Trading has bolstered its range from Schott Zwiesel.
The brand’s Tritan crystal glass collection now features three new series: Finesse, Fiesta and Modo. Tritan crystal is said to contain no harmful barium or lead and be light in weight and robust.
The Finesse range, which consists of three designs, (Etoile, Fleur and Soleil), carries a traditional shape with a medium stem that progresses into the bowl. Each design in this range is identified by its individual grey-cut pattern at the base of the bowl and is suitable for a fine dining environment.
The Fiesta range of glasses has a compact and functional appearance making them suitable for a fine dining or prestigious event scenario and, along with the Finesse range, is made using Schott Zwiesel’s new ‘Spun Crystal’ technique. This method of manufacture means these glasses can be offered at machine-made prices yet should offer the look of a mouthblown glass and said to be twice as strong as they are made from a single, spun piece of glass, with no joint between the bowl and the stem.
The third range to the collection is Modo, a design that is claimed to be bold and modernist and features wine, Champagne and beer/water glasses; the 163ml Champagne glass benefits from an effervescence point, designed to help transmit a continual stream of minute bubbles.
Furthermore, Schott Zwiesel will be adding ‘Summermood’ to its glassware in time for the BBQ season.
Consisting of Champagne, wine and bar glasses, plus a carafe, this range is designed to maintain the temperature of its contents, whether hot or cold, by the incorporation of a double wall, and by being made of borosilicate glass, the first to be released under the Schott Zwiesel brand.
