Sip Scotch In Style Like Daniel Craig: Wicked Gift Idea
Posted on December 16, 2011
A few months ago I got it into my head that I needed some serious scotch glasses. After that scotch glasses were all I could see, cropping up in movies, TV shows, home magazines. Seriously, the same glasses I finally got were later featured front and centre with Daniel Craig on the cover of Esquire in August.
When starting the hunt for the perfect set my first impulse was look for antiques. Especially since I wanted crystal and they would be something I’d keep forever. Generally, I always prefer antiques. There’s nothing better than hunting something down that’s unique and you really like. But I never found what I was looking for in the right price range.
That is until a trip to The Bay home ware section. These Lauren by Ralph Lauren “Cocktail Party Double Old Fashioned Glasses” were better then anything I’d seen. Very “when men were men” look and feel.
Their weight is perfect. They’re made of heavy lead crystal and have a sold thick base. What also caught my eye is they’re made in Germany. Now for that quality what would you except to pay? I thought 60 dollars for a set of four was pretty great, especially since I love them.
Not only are there several patterns to choose from (Glen Plaid, Argyle and I think two others), you can also opt for the highball set, shot glasses or a very lovely scotch decanter. I’m going back for the decanter as soon as I can.
And of course, now that I have finally found them, I’m seeing them everywhere.
