Did you know that the type of glass you drink from also affects the flavours of your drink? Who knew that drinking glasses are shaped in a particular way that impacts the flavours of drinks? Well, we all know now! That's why we've put together a huge variety of crystal clear works of art to help you stock up on your barware.

Whether it's a special occasion, celebration or just an indulgent night in, treat yourself to a glass of bubbly using our beautiful champagne glasses. Specially designed to have a long U-shaped bowl and stem that captures the bubbles to quickly release all the delicious aromas whilst preserving the fizz. There are many variations of shapes when it comes to champagne glasses, you can choose from our selection of classic vintage champagne saucers, which has a wide, flatter bowl or a beautiful champagne tulip, with a unique V shaped bowl. All designed to ensure that you get the most out of your special bottles of prosecco and spritzers.
Choosing your wine glasses is as important as the wine itself. Enjoy your vino the right way with one of our stunning wine glasses to compliment all the rich flavours. Look out for certain design features such as the stem of a wine glass; it's important for controlling the temperature of the wine. Holding your glass by the stem will stop your wine from heating up and losing flavour. A wider rim also helps you enjoy a better glass of wine as you swirl the wine around in your glass, releasing all those hidden notes and aromas. Even if you're not a wine connoisseur, you can still look the part with our elegant wine glass collection. The general rule is, white wines go in a smaller bowl and red wines in a wider bowl.
Whiskey on the rocks is a classic tipple. Served in a short tumbler glass or a 'lowboy', this glass has a wide rim and a heavy bottom, which means it's also great for muddling cocktails too. Speaking of cocktails, the taller version is the Highball glass. This taller glass allows more room for ice and mixer, perfect for shaking up tasty Long Island Ice Teas. For the more exclusive oak-aged spirits you will want a Glencairn whiskey glass - a wider bowl and a narrower rim will help funnel the aroma straight to your nose. Swirl your whiskey like you would a wine to really appreciate the oak-aged smell.
Gin has had a resurgence in the last five years, but it's a spirit that has been around for hundreds of years. Gin is a grain alcohol distilled with aromatic botanicals like Juniper and Coriander. Gin is primarily served in balloon glasses, referring to their wide bowl and long stems. These glasses are best for serving gin mixed with a tonic or into a cocktail, as the wide rim allows for more ice in the glass and an accompanying garnish to complete your drinking experience.
Of course, not everyone will have an alcoholic beverage. Cater to everyone's drink of choice with our traditional soda glasses and tumbles, perfect if you are hosting a get together in your house. Having a coffee morning or catch up soon? Latte glasses and a cafetiere will bring some coffee shop luxury to your home. Release your inner barista and present edible yummies on a beautiful serving platter. Make sure to include matching cutlery sets plus cake forks to help you and your guests finish up every last crumb.
