This cognac glass has the perfect shape to concentrate the aromas towards the nose, without the burning sensation that would occur in the case of a narrower chimney. The short stem also provides a comfortable grip and the appropriate heat transfer between the hand and the liquid. Moreover, the angle is very helpful as a guide to pour the same amount to all your guests. Made of Tritan crystal, a patented non-lead material made of titanium and zirconium oxide, it resists breakage, chipping and scratching, and is thermal shock resistant. The result is a clear, shiny, thin, yet highly resistant and diswasher safe glass.
Schott Zwiesel (a brand of Zwiesel Kristallglas, AG) has a 130 year history of innovation and success, including such breakthrough developments as the first machine made stemware and the first lead-free crystal glass. With the introduction of the proprietary Tritan® Crystal technique (the result of special additives such as titanium with a unique tempering process) Zwiesel has once again revolutionized the industry. Rigorous laboratory testing proves the brilliance, dishwasher safety, and break resistance of Tritan.
