This Is the Only Cocktail Glass You'll Ever Need

A Clever, Hand-Blown Drinking Vessel That Makes All Others Irrelevant

By Sam Eichner ·

It’s rare for us to get so worked about something as pedestrian as fine glassware. But when one piece threatens to alter the way you think about pouring and mixing and drinking alcoholic libations altogether, we feel it’s our duty to hyperbolically freak out.

Introducing the Duo, an all-purpose cocktail and whiskey glass that really is as all-purpose as we described it right there. It’s already reached its funding goal on Kickstarter, and plans to ship out by around June—in other words, right when you need it.

So, why might this cocktail glass be superior to other cocktail glasses? Glad you asked (and by “you,” we mean “we”). Firstly, each one is an individually hand-blown double-walled borosilicate glass, meaning it looks very nice but also has the capacity to insulate temperature better than a standard glass (and preclude the need for the coaster you always forget to use).

Secondly: it features subtle 1oz annular ribs to help you make more exact measurements for your favorite cocktails, as well as keep track of how much you’re actually drinking.

And thirdly: the Duo glass is specifically designed to accommodate a large 2” ice ball, the preferred, slow-melting, less dilutive cooling mechanism for whiskey consumption. To show how dedicated they are to the ice ball method, the requisite ice ball mold will be included with your glass.

Thus putting the final nail in the coffin that contains all your other whiskey glasses.
