Product details

This glass looks like it’s made with traditional crystal, but it’s made with crystalline ― a strong alternative with a clear brilliance and a fine tone when you clink your glasses.

In the STORSINT series there is glassware for all types of drinks, so you can easily match glasses when setting the table.

Manufactured in a way similar to handmade glasses, which means that the stem of the glass is smooth and has no seam.

Retro!Verified ReviewerThese are really cute, retro style martini glasses. I bought 4, but had to return 2 as there were small flaws in the glass. Maybe i’m a little fussy, but I wasn’t happy to have even tiny snags on the rims? Hence the dropped star.4

Match your wine with the right glass

Did you know that there is a whole science behind why wine glasses look the way they do? Fortunately, you don’t need to dive into the science to match your favourite wine with the right glass. We developed the STORSINT glass series so you have optimal glasses for different wines. But first we needed to thoroughly understand what happens to a wine when it’s poured into a glass with a certain shape – so we took on the help of some experienced sommeliers along the way. Product developer Malin Ljungström shares some facts: “For example, a younger wine should be served in a smaller bowl with a slightly narrower opening. This is so the wine is not affected too much by the oxygen in the air", explains Malin."On the other hand, an older and fuller wine needs a large, round bowl and a relatively wide opening to enhance all the aromas and flavours from the wine being more in contact with oxygen."

Thin and durable glass How a wine is enjoyed when drinking from a wine glass is also about the balance between the bowl, shaft and foot. “A good wine glass should be nice to hold and beautiful to look at”, says Malin. The choice to use lead-free crystal was important for STORSINT. “Lead is a metal that is harmful to both people and the environment, and we do not allow it in any products. The lead-free crystal glass has a fine lustre, is thin and strong and can be machine-washed”, says Malin as she toasts two glasses lightly against each other, spreading a nice and crisp reverberation

New insights about wine

For Malin, the collaboration with the sommeliers meant that some of her conceptions about wine changed. For example, that champagne or other sparkling wine should always be enjoyed from tall flute glasses with plenty of room for the bubbles. “It’s true about younger wines, but we learned that an older champagne is more aromatic, and can therefore be served in a wine glass with a larger bowl to develop its full potential”, says Malin and adds: "In the world of wine, there’s always something to learn."

Material

Here's to crystalline

Join us in raising a glass to STORSINT—a collection made of crystalline. Traditional crystal is made with lead, a metal we're committed to leave out of all our products for health and sustainability reasons. Crystalline is a lead-free alternative that offers strength, brilliance, and a sweet, resonating tone whenever clinked.
