Bar Glasses

Raise a toast to exquisitely crafted bar glasses from Pure Home + Living (PHL)

Every cocktail enthusiast and wine connoisseur will emphasize that the vessel in which the drink is served plays a crucial role. It's not just about aesthetics; the shape and size of a glass can significantly influence the taste, aroma, and overall drinking experience of a beverage. In the art of serving beverages, a drink isn't just characterised by its contents, but also by its vessel. Be it a beautifully crafted cocktail, a vintage wine, or a perfectly aged whiskey, they all need the right glass to truly shine. In the world of beverages, the choice of glass is not just about holding a drink; it's an integral part of the drinking experience.

Having the right bar glasses is about more than just aesthetics; it's a blend of science, tradition, and the overall drinking experience. Here's why having specific bar glasses is essential:

  • Enhances flavour and aroma - The shape and size of a glass can significantly influence how the drink's aroma is released and how the drink hits your palate. For instance, the wide bowl of redwine glasses allows the wine to breathe, enhancing its flavour.
  • Maintains ideal temperature - Some glasses are designed to be held by the stem to ensure that the warmth of your hand doesn't affect the drink's temperature, like with wine glasses. Others, like mugs for hot drinks, are designed to retain heat.
  • Aesthetic appeal - Presentation matters, especially in a social setting or a professional bar environment. The right glass can elevate the visual appeal of a drink and make the drinking experience feel more special.
  • Portion control - Glasses are often sized according to the standard serving size of a beverage, helping in portion control and ensuring that drinks aren't too strong or too diluted.
  • Effervescence - Certain glasses, like champagne flutes, are specifically designed to retain the carbonation of a drink, ensuring that bubbly drinks stay bubbly.
  • Safety - Using the correct glass ensures that it can handle the drink it contains. For example, hot beverages require glasses that can withstand heat without cracking.
  • Versatility and function - Some glasses, like highball glasses, are versatile and can be used for various drinks. Others, like margarita glasses, serve very specific functions.

FAQs

How do I properly clean and maintain bar glasses?

Proper cleaning and maintenance of bar glasses ensure not only the longevity of the glassware but also the quality of the drinks served in them. Always rinse glasses immediately after use.

Not all glasses are dishwasher safe. Delicate crystal glasses should be hand-washed. For stemmed glasses, hold by the bowl instead of the stem to prevent breakage. Air-dry glasses by placing them upside down on a clean towel or drying rack.
