The Wine Merchant's Glasses, The 'Champagne Glass' - (set of 2)
Berry Bros. & Rudd’s own range of exclusive glasses are produced by John Jenkins & Sons Ltd, a family business with a long-established reputation as one of the finest manufacturers of high-quality, hand-made bespoke glassware. The objective is quite simple: to produce a small range of glasses which, firstly, look supremely elegant on the table and, secondly, deliver wine to the palate of the consumer in a way that maximises its enjoyment.
The world has moved away form the saucer-shaped glass to the flute, which is now widely accepted. Although very elegant in shape, the flute does not allow for the fullest aromatic expression of a Champagne, as the top of the glass is narrow. We have created a glass with a wider, fuller bowl to enable the bouquet to express itself fully, particularly important when drinking Champagnes with age or with powerful aromas. The glass has a deep v-shape at the base of the bowl, the bottom of which has been laser-etched to ensure that a brilliant stream of fine bubbles rises effortlessly up the glass.
