Introducing: Riedel BAR, Exclusively at Bristol Farms

Sidle up to the bar, so we can pour you a cocktail — and toast the Riedel Bar Drink Specific Glassware Collection. Cheers! *clink*

We’re especially jazzed because Bristol Farms is the ONLY retail store in the U.S. to carry this exciting new product line (other than Riedel’s own stores and website, of course). We think you too will be dazzled by the stylish, elegant glassware, which was created in collaboration with spirits specialist Zane Harris, known for his mixology at many cocktail meccas, including Dutch Kills, Maison Premiere and Rob Roy.

This unique collection has been designed with bartending and entertaining in mind and features six glasses that have been perfected for thousands of cocktails — definitely sounds like a party! The glasses are based on the traditional serves for seven classic cocktails: Old Fashioned, Manhattan, Daiquiri, Sour, Peasant, Buck and Julep. While creating each glass (in partnership with Riedel), Harris paid particular attention to its size, shape, volume and capacity for ice, a super-cool concept that’s never been explored by other glassware companies. And THIS is one of the many reasons why Riedel is known for being at the forefront of innovation and design!

The Highball and Rocks Glasses are specially made for both standard and larger ice cubes, while the Neat Glass is sized for optimal comfort in your hand. Crafted with straight, parallel sides, the Fizz Glass captures the “push-pop” head of foam in frothier cocktails. The Sour Glass features an outward flared lip to deliver citrusy taste and silky smoothness from the tip of your tongue to your entire palate. And the Nick & Nora Glass, with its inward curve, causes you to oh-so-elegantly tilt your head back, ensuring the high-proof drink hits the ultimate, mid-palate spot.

A personal favorite, the Nick & Nora is named after the lead characters in the timeless detective novel The Thin Man by Dashiell Hammett. The glamorous husband-and-wife team, played by William Powell and Myrna Loy in the wildly popular six-film series, sip delicious martinis while solving thrilling mysteries. And who wouldn’t want to ooze sophistication and savoir faire like these high-society sleuths?

We are honored to exclusively carry the Riedel Bar Drink Specific Glassware Collection in our stores, so drop in and check out these exquisite cocktail glasses, perfect for your home bar and all your entertaining needs. We predict you and your guests will be shaken and stirred with delight!
