Different Types Of Gin Glasses

Balloon glass (Also know as Copa de balon)

Popular glass bowl with stem. This glass provides lots of space for mixed drinks which can be served with ice and embellished with additional ingredients. The size allows for a large amount of drink, which is ideal if you are after a refreshing alcoholic drink in the summer.

Best For: Classic G&T, Flavoured Gin

Martini glass

Iconic shaped glass with open brim and stem. Ideal for allowing the aroma from the drink to hit the nose as you drink it. The stem allows the drinker to hold it without warming up the drink with their hand as they hold it.

Best For: Straight-up or short cocktails served without ice, such as the classic Martini.

Hi-ball glass

A traditional way to serve G&T. The hi-ball glass is great for Gin that is served with mixers like tonic or lemonade and as there is space for both the ice and the high volume of liquid.

Best For: Classic G&T, Gin cocktails with lots of non-alcoholic mixer, drinks with crushed ice.

Tumbler (Also known as a rock glass or lowball)

These shorter glasses still have a good width to them and are perfect for serving drinks neat or ‘on the rocks’.

Best For: Strong, short mixed drinks which don’t need shaking.
