Parsley in Time has launched a new range of polycarbonate ‘glassware’ made by Strahl.
The range is said to be shatterproof, dishwasher safe and designed to be stylish. A choice of designs is available, including cocktail, wine and beer glasses, goblets, pitchers and accessories.
For instance the Vivaldi line of tumblers comes in sizes and shapes including classic ‘on the rocks’ designs, as well as highball, collins, cooler and old fashioned, with capacities ranging from 8oz to 23oz. Like all Strahl polycarbonates, Vivaldi tumblers are hand-finished to remove manufacturing join lines, mimicking classic glassware.
Strahl polycarbonates are claimed to be able to be washed in high or low temperature programmes in a glasswasher. For the presentation of chilled drinks, they can be stored in the freezer or refrigerator, as their insulation properties are said to keep them cooler for longer than glass.
“Strahl polycarbonates are the safe, strong and elegant alternative to glass,” said Rob Blunderfield, Parsley in Time’s marketing manager. “They are ideal for outdoor drinks service, or anywhere that a classy polycarbonate is needed instead of conventional glass. Because they are so durable, they’ll cut costs, since they dramatically reduce breakage and the need to restock glassware.”
The Vivaldi 10oz/28cl hi ball tumbler has a list price of £4.99 each and is sold in multiples of 12.
