Low gloss glass is also known as Old-Fashioned glass. Lowball glasses are short but full glasses with a very thick base. The thick base creates a large surface area and this helps mixed drinks stay that way.
A tall glass is a large and tall glass. High ball cups used to serve drinks are poured over a stone tower. These drinks have a significantly more non-alcoholic portion than others. The hi-ball glass set is used to serve hugely popular drinks like Bloody Mary or Mojito.
Martinis used to be served in cocktails or highball glasses. However, over time, the martini has evolved to include a substantial portion of vodka. To properly serve this new martini, the martini glass was invented. Martini glasses differ from traditional cocktails in that they usually have a larger bowl and are completely conical at the bottom.
The margarita glass is similar to a cocktail glass, but its cone narrows to a much thinner second segment at the narrow end and has a very wide mouth.
Gin Copa Glass
Gin has gained popularity in recent times with a multitude of flavors and combinations. Connoisseurs prefer the traditional Copa which has a large bowl and rests on a tree trunk. Copa is designed to preserve the smell and flavor of the gin and also allows for more ice and lime to be added to the glass to keep the drink cool and add flavor.
Just as the individual selection of spirits is extensive, there is also a wide range of glassware designed to bring out the flavors, aromas and impact of your drinking experience. It’s the right combination of the two, which is essential to truly enjoying how you feel.
