Parsley in Time has introduced a range of drink-specific cocktail glasses manufactured by Riedel.
The Drink Specific Barware range features six distinctive cocktail glasses, each created to enhance drinks presentation. They were conceived in collaboration with mixologist Zane Harris and take account of both traditional designs and modern trends.
For example, the Highball and Rocks glasses are shaped for their classic cocktail recipes, but are also designed to accept the larger format ice cubes that are increasingly popular.
The six glasses are the Sour, the Rocks, for drinks on the rocks, the Neat, which is smaller than the Rocks and designed for drinks served with no ice, the Highball, the Fizz, and the Nick & Nora.
Rob Blunderfield, marketing manager at Parsley in Time said of the range’s Sour glass: “With an outward flared lip, this glass delivers the silky smoothness of a traditional whiskey sour to your entire palate. Ideal for aromatics, floated on the head of a well shaken drink, this makes sours and daiquiris taste as they should.”
And of the Nick & Nora, he added: “Named after characters in the film ‘The Thin Man’, this is the range’s most iconic glass. The Nick & Nora allows for the correct delivery of a high alcohol content drink, like the Manhattan and the Martini, to the mid-palate. The absence of this glass has forced bartenders to use champagne coupes in their place, until now.”
In addition to the six cocktail glasses the range has a mixing glass with pouring lip, and an all-purpose glass suitable for wines and bubbly.
The Drinks Specific Barware range has list prices starting from £3.90 per glass, plus VAT. Each glass variety is supplied by Parsley in Time in boxes of 12.
