I don’t know about you, but sometimes it seems like my enjoyment of a drink can be enhanced by the glass I choose to drink from. I will typically go for the glass with a little bit of heft to it; something sturdy. I also appreciate unusual drinkware, so when I saw these glasses from the New Orleans-based artist and glass-blower Ben Dombey of Glassblower Ben, I knew I wanted to share them with you.The slanted whiskey glass
Ben started out trying to make the perfect whiskey glass after a trip to Scotland. Each glass is custom-blown with lung power and is 100% made in America. An appealing feature of his designs is that you can get them stamped on the bottom with custom text or an image. So, while you sip your favorite beverage, there is a little something special to catch your eye as the glass empties. Unlike etching, this stamp is never going away so choose your words wisely. Having just made my first-ever purchase of mead at a placw called Melovino Meadery, I like the Honeycomb stamped glass. Okay, so maybe you don’t want to see this at the bottom of your glass, but isn’t it cool?The mixing glass pitcher is both elegant and beautiful.The Classic Large Dombey Glass looks like something I’d like to sip from in front of the fire.
Whatever you choose, enjoy your favorite beverage responsibly.
