This elegant slender glass has a tall stem, meant to lift fine
Tequila to the level it deserves, to accord it the appreciation and
respect of which it is worthy.
Riedel Bar (2008) is composed of stylish and functional glasses designed to enhance the enjoyment of spirits by showcasing the aromatics and flavor characteristics, while minimizing the bite of alcohol. Riedel adopted the same approach in developing spirits glasses as they do to refine their wine glass shapes. These are not glasses created on drawing boards, but through trial and error, tasting, re-tasting and elimination, until the ultimate glass is apparent. Aided by the world's most renowned spirit experts, the panel evaluates the effect of shapes, size and rim diameters. Tasters determine which silhouettes show the most popular spirits and fortified wines to their greatest advantage on the nose and palate, without losing the carefully crafted nuances of distillation to the dominance of alcohol. Executed in lead crystal, machine blown in Bavaria, Germany.
