Wine glasses not only reflect the artistry, but also show the beauty and delicacy of wine, so everyone must understand the specific classification of wine glasses and make appropriate use.
Introduction of wine glass classification
1. Water cup
Water cups mainly include water cups and Tumbler cups. A water cup with a handle at the bottom and an arc-shaped upper body. It is a common cup in restaurants. Mostly used in luxury western restaurants, mainly used to hold mineral water or ice water. In general, except for wine glasses for specific purposes, it can be used as a water glass. The common water glass can be divided into two types: oblique and straight. It is mostly used to hold long drinking or soft drinks.
2. Red wine or wine glass
The red wine glass is also a wine glass, with a handle at the bottom, and the upper body is deeper than the white wine glass, and it is more round and wide. Mainly used to hold red wine and cocktails made with it.
3. Brandy Cup
A brandy glass is a bantam wine glass with a small mouth and a wide belly. Although the actual capacity of the cup is large (240-300 ml), the amount of wine poured (about 30 ml) should not be too much. The brandy cup is born with an aristocratic atmosphere, and it is really designed to hold brandy. The round body allows the fragrance of the century-old nectar to remain in the cup. When drinking, the cup handle is usually clamped between the fingers of the middle finger and the ring finger, and the hand temperature is passed into the cup to warm the wine slightly, thereby increasing the taste and aroma of the wine. It is better to pour no more than 1/3.
4. High neck cup
A tall glass with a cylindrical shape. Used for ice water, other soft drinks, beer and long drinks where ice cubes are used more. A sippy cup is a small-capacity cup that can be drunk in one sip. It is mostly used to taste whisky, so it is also called a tasting cup. Available in 60ml doubles and 30ml singles. In order to fully appreciate the amber color of whisky, it is best to use a colorless and transparent glass.
5. Plain glass
The flat-bottomed shallow glass is deeply loved by whisky lovers because of its many styles and the ability to see the color of the whisky more clearly. Some whisky lovers prefer to drink their whisky in a flat glass so they can see the color of the whisky more clearly. When professional connoisseurs taste whisky, they use a specially shaped glass with a mouthpiece. This glass has a lid, so that the aroma of the wine is completely contained in the glass and will not be emitted.
The above is the editor’s introduction to the classification of wine glasses. I hope that friends can get to know each other and choose the corresponding glasses in life to make their drinking life more colorful.
