People have been drinking alcohol for thousands of years, but the gin and tonic has very much become more than a standard well drink. If you want to have the most delicious, delightful, and delectable gin drinking experience, it’s time to find the perfect glass for it.
It’s a classic drink that has endless possibilities and crafting one is a refined art. Therefore, choosing the perfect G&T glass is one of the most important aspects of your entire experience. You want to choose a glass which can release the intense botanical aromas from your beverage - allowing the individual to truly enjoy the flavours of the gin you have chosen.
What is a Copa de Balon?
The Copa de Balon glass dates back to the 1700s in the Basque region of northern Spain. They are a very uniquely shaped style of glass which sit on a long stem. They feature a large rounded balloon shape bowl which allows large chunks of ice to be used. This prevents the ice from melting quickly and diluting the gin, whilst keeping the drink cooler for longer. This large space in the glass also allows for garnishes to be included, trapping the aroma of the gin and enhancing the entire drink.
Why are Copa de Balon glasses perfect for G&Ts?
As we have already touched upon, the glass is primarily designed to trap the aromas of the gin, guaranteeing a better taste to the drink is achieved. This will not only intensify the flavour of the overall drink - but also keep it cool and ensure a better drinking experience.
They are capable of keeping the coolness of the drink for a greater period of time without compromising its quality or flavour. So, we truly believe that gin and tonic lovers who wish to enjoy their drink to the fullest should use a Copa de Balon glass instead of a Tom Collins or any other long cocktail glass.
