The Riedel Tequila crystal glass, designated the Official Tequila crystal glass by the Consejo Regulador del Tequila, was designed to enhance Mexicos finest Reposados, Aejos and Reservas de Casa Tequilas. The shape and size of the Crystal Bowl deliver the finest and most delicate aromas, originating from the combination of the Blue Agave and the oak cask in which Tequila is aged, de emphasizing the evidence of pungent alcohol fumes. The delivery from the crystal glass to the palate makes the beverage taste round, supple and sweet. The crystal glass has a tall stem, meant to lift fine Tequila to the level it deserves. The crystal glass was developed at two workshops led by Georg Riedel and attended by over two dozen Tequila producers, officials and cognoscenti, using twelve 100% Agave Tequila Reposado, aged eight months. Each workshop consisted of four rounds of tastings, during which two to three crystal glasses were eliminated at each to find the best suitable crystal glass shape.

Varietal Specific Designs

"It takes a great deal of efforts for a talented wine-maker to produce a good wine. These efforts can be ruined in no time if the wine is not served properly. The quality of the glass plays a crucial role here and Riedel produces the largest range of high quality glasses, specifically fine-tuned to fit the predominant wine varietals of the planet. Riedel makes it possible to fully appreciate all the nuances of aromas and tastes from the best wines of the world." -Michel Bettane

The Riedel glass designs are based on the exceptional characteristics of each grape variety, which in turn determines the shape, size and rim diameter of the bowl. The latest machine blown technology, in conjunction with the seamless pulled stem, offers a special design feature "architecture", which creates an indent in the bottom of the bowl, reflecting the light and adding another dimension to the lively color of wine.

"I prefer to decant wines, both young and old. It is a sign of respect for old wines and a sign of confidence in young wines. Decanting old wines, just a few moments before they are served, helps to ensure that the wines' clarity and brilliance are not obscured by any deposit that may have developed over time. Decanting young wines several hours before they are served gives the wine a chance to bloom and attain a stage of development that normally requires years of aging." - Georg Riedel
