Parsley in Time has launched the ‘tough’ Tulips: part of the Nude Stem Zero range, marketed by Utopia.
These lead free, crystal glasses are said to combine good design with a specially modified surface that strengthens the glass – making them both tough and fine.
The Tulip glasses’ looks are based around the combination of a slender stem and a flat-bottomed bowl with tapered sides, while the rim is crystal cut.
There are three glasses to choose from, a 30cl flute plus 70cl and 100cl wine goblets. All of them are handmade and are said to be suitable serving the finest wines, as the design should enhance flavour and aroma. Complementing the Tulip glasses is a matching 64.5cl water glass.
Rob Blunderfield, marketing manager at Parsley in Time, said: “Despite looking exquisite, these Tulips really are tough.
“They are super light and super fine, but much stronger than standard fine wine glasses. Where a conventional wine glass might get knocked over and break, these guys won’t crack. Of course they are also dishwash safe. They will definitely save a busy restaurant a lot in breakages – and money.”
The Stem Zero Tulip glasses are available direct from Parsley in Time, for same-day (inside the M25) or next-day delivery. They come in boxes of two, costing from £29.79 per glass. The water glasses cost £15.60 per glass.
