Our new style gin glass, this increasingly popular balloon-shaped glass is ideal for a classic Gin; Tonic. The Copa-style glass originally comes from Spain, called a Copa de Balon which dates back to the 1700s in the Basque region of northern Spain. All gin drinkers can appreciate the bowl-sized capacity that helps to infuse ice and fresh flavours together whilst containing the ingredients aroma. Also, the elegant stem keeps your hand from warming the glass and melting the ice, helping you to fully savour well-made cocktails.
Helvellyn is one of our traditional collections with its origins firmly rooted in Jacobean design. The elegant pattern of flutes and olives was designed by Lady Grania Cavendish in 1976.
This collection is favoured for formal dining & entertainment by most British Embassies, Consulates and Residencies around the world. As such it has featured in many films and TV series as it represents a timeless elegance and aspirational lifestyle.
The name Helvellyn shares its name with one of the most significant and spectacular mountains in the stunningly beautiful English Lake District National Park which is close to the Cumbria Crystal Factory.
