Utopia has introduced three new toughened stacking ranges, the Highness, the Timeless Vintage Stacking and the Hill, designed to bring functionality to the bar without sacrificing style.
The new range is said to be toughened and fully stackable.
During manufacture toughened glass is treated so the surface is compressed to balance tension introduced into the glass core. It is this compression that should make the glass strong and more resistant to breakage than non-toughened glass. Toughened glass should also have a greater resistance to thermal stresses.
The new toughened glass ranges have different styles, to broaden the appeal to a range of venues, themes and drinks. The Highness is a feature tumbler in three popular sizes, long drink, hiball and old fashioned. It has mesh effect patterning.
Also available in these three sizes is the Timeless Vintage. This style has a classic cut glass effect and is suitable for a variety of drinks from a straight whisky on the rocks to a long mojito.
Completing the new collections of stacking glasses is the Hill, which is available in two sizes, long drink and whisky. These two glasses are designed to be clean cut and refined, for a minimalist presentation.
Kathryn Oldershaw, marketing director of Utopia, said: “Toughened glasses that can be stacked and look stylish are the ultimate combination for busy bars that care about their image and their customers.”
