Introducing the official Tequila Glass, designed by Riedel Crystal with the help of Tequila producers, officials and cognoscenti. Elegant and slender, the Riedel Tequila Glass is 8 high with a capacity of 6 ounces, designed to highlight the finest characteristics of Mexicos national drink. Non-lead glass from Riedels Ouverture collection, the tall stem lifts tequila to the level of appreciations it deserves. Claus Riedel was the first to recognize that the shape of the glass could enhance the overall enjoyment of alcoholic beverages. He believed that the bouquet and taste of wine was dependant on the form of the glass. 'Sommeliers' is the ultimate in hand-blown lead crystal excellence. While 'Vinum' offers the same wide range in a machine made lead crystal version. Maximilian Riedel decided to create a Pink Champagne "O" glass to toast life and hope for those women whose lives have been affected by breast cancer. After much deliberation, discussion and collaboration between Maximilian and Georg Riedel on the final design, it was Georg Riedel's design that was chosen. Maximilian says, "We liked his drawings better than mine." The Pink Champagne glass differs from the standard "O" glasses as it sits on a ribbed hollow pedestal and the bowl is an elongated tulip shape. The first handmade prototypes of the glass will be shown at the April 2006 NY Tabletop Show.
