New glass promotes double bend benefits

Austrian firm MarkThomas has launched a wine glass featuring what it claims is a unique double bend design that offers “a true and perfect all-rounder.”

The 500ml MT-db glass has a conical base, designed to accommodate small tasting pours and make it easier to swirl the wine. The glass then bends and widens to allow the wine to breathe, before a second bend narrows it sharply to concentrate aromas.

Mark Thomas sales manager Thomas Zichtl told the drinks business that its design “aerates the wines as well as much bigger glasses”, while the double bend “brings in additional stability due to a different stress ratio on the glass.”

The glasses are handmade from lead-free crystal to create an “ultra-thin and light” 100g product with a retail price of £24. Among their first customers is Moët UK Sommelier of the Year 2013 Clement Robert of London restaurant Medlar.

The company now plans to add a Champagne glass, water glass, larger red wine glass and decanter to the range.

The launch follows a number of other recent glassware launches, including Berry Bros & Rudd’s own range, a Champagne flute created by Swedish journalist Richard Juhlin and a dishwasher-friendly decanter addition to UK presenter Olly Smith’s Zalto range.
