Grasmere Large Gin Glass: SW-740-GR
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.
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.

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!
