Sip in style with this Riedel Vinum glass. Introduced in 1986, Vinum became the first machine-made glass in history to be based on the characteristics of grape varietal. Vinum was not developed on a drawing board, but in tasting work shops based on the performance where the content commands the shape. Vinum is made from lead crystal and machine blown in Bavaria, Germany.
The Riedel Tequila glass, designated the Official Tequila Glass by the Consejo Regulador del Tequila, was designed to enhance Mexico's finest Reposados, Aejos, and Reservas de Casa Tequilas. The shape and size of the bowl deliver the finest and most delicate aromas, originating from the combination of the Blue Agave and the oak cask in which Tequila is aged, de-emphasizing the evidence of pungent alcohol fumes. The delivery from the glass to the palate makes the beverage taste round, supple, and sweet. The glass has a tall stem, meant to lift fine Tequila to the level it deserves. The glass was developed at two workshops led by Georg Riedel and attended by over two dozen Tequila producers, officials, and cognoscenti, using twelve 100% Agave Tequila Reposado, aged eight months. Each workshop consisted of four rounds of tastings, during which two to three glasses were eliminated at each to find the best suitable glass shape.
