    New whiskey glasses from Libbey

    Libbey Glass, in my home town, has announced a new line of whiskey glasses designed for the growing interest in upscale whiskey. Their spokesman notes that people who are paying $25 a shot in bars or $400 a bottle for home consumption think the barware ought to reflect the status of their purchase. Sadly, there is no mention of the role of the shape of the container in nosing or tasting.
    If God made anything better than bourbon he must have kept it for Hisself.

    I'm ever the skeptic, but my guess would be that they think people who are paying $25 a shot in bars and $400 a bottle for home consumption think the barware ought to reflect the price of their purchase.

    The Glencairn glass seems to be the perfect shape? Curious as to what this new one looks like.

    Now, as to Solo cups, the only drawback is that hummingbirds are attracted to the red ones. It can a real bitch keeping them out of your good stuff.

    Just wait a couple months and I am sure you will be able to pick these up at half price from the Libbey Oulet.

    The way I read that article, Libbey might be targeting bars more than individuals with this stuff.

    Possibly, but I can't see Libbey passing up the chance to put them in various stores for the additional sales. Two of them looked fairly interesting, if I ever get the man-cave and liquor bar I want I might have a few of them next to my Glencairns.

    I agree with this, and at a good price point too. That is how my wife gets me go shopping with her.
