Riedel completely changed the game when they brought out their single malt whisky glass. Now they've stepped it up again by introducing it in to their sommelier range.

In early 1992, a panel of Scotch whisky experts convened at Riedel's headquarters in Austria to test a range of nineteen different glass shapes. On the basis of this first selection, Georg Riedel undertook further research with the help of master distillers in Scotland

This research resulted in this brand new design for the scotch glass. A complete reinvention. 

The design incorporates a small, slightly out turned lip which directs the spirit onto the tip of the tongue, where sweetness is perceived, and serves to emphasise the elegant creaminess of top quality single malt whisky.

Claus J Riedel was the first designer to suggest that it was the shape of the glass that played such a pivotal role in the flavour of the wine. More than 50 years in the making the Sommelier range of Riedel glasses is the pinnacle of this design philosophy. 

Each glass is hand blown from the finest quality lead crystal - using techniques that are as old as glass itself the glassblowers create wafer thin bowls with precisely tailored depths, widths and rims. 

CAUTION: Once you use the Sommelier range no other glass will do.

*ALL SOMMELIER GLASSES COME WITH A 12 MONTH REPLACEMENT WARRANTY. IF YOU BREAK IT WE'LL REPLACE IT*
