Have you ever ordered a martini at a restaurant or bar and been utterly deflated when it arrives? It doesn't matter how top-shelf the liquor or how perfectly shaken it is if the glass is horrible.
A bad martini glass can ruin the entire experience.
I would rather have a beer than insult a martini with a horrible glass.
Because a martini isn't just a drink, it's an experience. And we believe that experience is all in the glass.
It's the Holy Grail of martini variables, if you think about it. A magically great glass makes whatever the liquid is taste better. Not "seem to taste better," but actually taste better.
Imagine how good anything will taste in our new "Crystal Mural" glass, for instance:
Is it a Grail or just a glass?
As we consider the many variables of the simplest drink in the world - shaken or stirred? gin or vodka? olives or twist? - remember, the glass can be the most important variable to consider.
That's why I will continue scour the world for the coolest martini glasses I can find. It's that important.
