Grasmere Gin Glass: SW-740-GR-FO
Our new style gin glass, this increasingly popular large balloon-shaped glass is ideal for a classic Gin and Tonic. The Copa-style glass originally comes from Spain. Called a Copa de Balon it originated in the Basque region of northern Spain and dates back to the 1700s. Gin drinkers will appreciate the capacity of the bowl which helps infuse ice and fresh flavours together whilst focusing the aroma for the nose. The elegant stem prevents your hand warming the glass and melting the ice too quickly.
The Grasmere Collection shares its name with the famous village and lake in the English Lake District where the famous poet William Wordsworth once lived. Crafted in a classic Georgian style, the refinement and complexity of the design has stood the test of time and today remains the most iconic and popular of all the Cumbria Crystal collections.
The Collection has featured in many films and period dramas as it beautifully embodies the essence of luxury living. Its recent popularity is enhanced after featuring in every episode of the post-Edwardian era drama Downton Abbey. It's use by James Bond in Casino Royale has further increased its popularity!
