As whisky drinkers, we all have our fair share of glassware in the cabinet – some of it fancy, some of it rather simple. How creative does it get, though? With theUncommonGreen, your barware is about to get a lot more attention.
Founded in Boston, Massachusetts, a city I miss dearly, UncommonGreen is a modern-day design house that fashions “contemporary home goods and other products with the philosophy that life is meant to be fun and interesting.” In my opinion, they succeed at just that.
Artistic and elegant, UncommonGreen glassware offers a level of craftsmanship that is designed to make a statement. From city maps and college towns, to fonts, literature, and constellation glassware, you are bound to find something you will love for yourself or feel would make the perfect gift. There is even a topography glassware line that captures the peaks, curves and dips of areas such as Mt. Everest, Machu Picchu and the Grand Canyon.
As an amateur astronomy enthusiast, I chose to go with the ‘Constellation Glassware,’ which is part of the “Smart” collection, obtaining both a rocks glass and a pint glass.
The glasses themselves are laser etched to perfection, featuring details that will last the lifetime of the glass – not just printed on material that will eventually wear off with time. After a nice cleansing out of the package, you will not be able to wait to pour a drink and enjoy.
The packaging – did I mention it is made of Eco-friendly materials? As for the glassware, made right here in the U.S.A. In fact, theUncommonGreen is passionate about sourcing materials and packaging from U.S.-based companies whenever possible, and they also partner with local artisans and small businesses to help bring their designs to fruition.
