On Wednesday evening I attended the launch of the new range of glassware from Waterford Crystal, the Mixology Collection. The launch was held in Thornton’s restaurant, the perfect setting for such a luxurious brand. On arrival we were treated to coupes of champagne and delicious canapes and had the opportunity to have a look at the collection and talk to the designer.
The Mixology Collection combines striking new shapes with classic Waterford cuts and vibrant colours. There are several options available, from classic champagne coupes and shot glasses to tumblers, pitchers and decanters. A set of four glasses combines different colours and cuts so that each glass is unique. I fell in love with the clear champagne coupes which have an elegant twenties feel. Holding the glass made me long for a sequinned flapper dress and Jay Gatsby on my arm to complete the look!
The collection is available from Brown Thomas and other Waterford Crystal retailers, and the range starts at €130 for a set of four shot glasses or two coloured tumblers. In addition Waterford are hosting Mixology Sessions in Brown Thomas tomorrow, April 27th, starting at 1pm.
