About the Glasses
The goal to create the perfect rocks glass began after a trip to Scotland in 2011 and, after years of experimentation, Ben started Glassblowerben, LLC in 2013. Ben produces the most amazing tumblers and mixing glasses.
The original was the medium size glass, perfect for a nice whiskey on the rocks. Different sizes evolved for those who yearned for a perfect Old Fashioned glass. Then Ben developed the perfect stirred cocktail tool with his Mixing Glass and unique stirrer. Every single glass that Ben makes is inflated by lung power and is 100% hand made in the United States.
The glasses have a fabulous weight to them and feel amazing in your hands and sensuous on the lips. They have a unique texture on the lower half. This adds to the handmade quality, makes them very distinct, and really shows off your favorite cocktail.
As with anything handmade, glasses will vary slightly from one another, adding to their unique charm. Ben’s masterpieces take you cocktail to the next level. Get yours now at Muddle & Stir.
