Jürgen Deibel, a renowned expert in the field of spirits and the author of numerous specialist books on those themes, came up with a new kind of sensory glass for pure gin, which, in addition to the requirements of professional flavor evaluation, also offers the possibility for use as a GINTONIC glass.

The lower part of the mouth-blown glass gives pure gin enough room to unfold its aromas, which reach the nose through the long-drawn chimney of the glass. Through the slightly outward edge of the glass, the liquid gently and broadly reaches the tongue and then the palate.
The opening of the glass allows the addition of an ice cube and the addition of tonic. With every sip you drink, you can, as necessary, top up with tonic and thus get a new character until the perfect balance between tonic and gin is achieved. In contrast to conventional glasses, such as long drink glasses, the tonic is added in small amounts so that the enjoyment continues to evolve. This will be a novelty for people who have always used a fixed ratio of gin and tonic.

„The new GIN & TONIC TASTING Glass from the Glashütte EISCH offers for the first time the possibility to evaluate a pure gin, enjoying the pleasure on the nose and palate, and afterwards to taste the typical drinking pleasure of a gin & tonic.“
