RIEDEL BAR (2008) are designed to enhance the enjoyment of spirits by showcasing the aromatics of alcohol. This series is developed through trial and error, tasting, re-tasting, and elimination until the ultimate glass is apparent.
The Cognac Hennessy glass is perfect for providing the ideal tasting experience of Cognac: fruit, body, finesse, and fire.
Cognac is mainly served in wide tulip-shaped glasses - in spite of the disadvantages which this traditional shape has for the enjoyment of cognac. The finely tuned shape of this glass harmonizes aroma and taste, tempers alcohol and stringency of the palate, and emphasises the bouquet. The flute-shaped glass allows its contents a very small evaporation surface.
Machine-made and dishwasher safe.
