Gin is more popular now than it has ever been, in fact UK gin sales have doubled in value over the last 6 years, and in 2017 Britons bought more than 47 million bottles of the stuff!
As gin becomes the go-to spirit for more and more consumers, the way people like to enjoy it is evolving too, as such, the way gin is served is also evolving. The classic hi-ball Collins style gin glass is rapidly becoming a thing of the past, with classic Spanish-style stemmed balloon gin glasses now the industry standard for serving a G&T.
Believed to have been invented during the 1700s in the Basque region of northern Spain, the balloon glass, or Copa de Balon has a large bowl sitting at the top of a slender stem. Designed to capture and hold the fragrance and aromas of the gin to give a better taste to the drink, the oversized bowl design also allows for more ice, keeping the drink cooler for longer, and more fruit or botanicals to add to the flavour.
With our new range of gin balloon glasses from brands such as; Utopia, Arcoroc and Libbey, you will find the perfect glasses for your venue. Ranging from more simple stout styles, designed to be more robust, to rustic traditional designs that will add a real touch of class to your Gin & Tonic glasses.
Don’t get left behind by the rest of the pack as we (hopefully!) move into the warmer months of the year, say goodbye to those dated hi-balls and get your elegant new gin balloon glasses now!
