THE WORMWOOD COLLECTION
From the beginning Italesse have always designed their Glassware to look beautiful with Italian flair of course but also to offer the best drinking experience whatever your tipple! In recent years they have teamed up with one of the most distinguished opinion leaders of the cocktail world, Giancarlo Mancino, and renowned designer Luca Trazzi, to create the fabulous and unique collection of Wormwood Cocktail Glasses.
THE GLASS MAKES THE COCKTAIL PERFECT
As important as the alcoholic mix is Italesse recognise that the glass itself contributes to the overall drinking experience. The feel, thickness and weight of the glass all lend themselves to creating a more positive drinking experience whereas the shape itself improves the taste, the bouquet and even the fizz of the cocktail. So many factors all pulled together perfectly by Italesse with their support team of Giancarlo Mancini and Luca Trazzi to create the Wormwood Collection, well worth the investment!
WORMWOOD THE ABSINTHE HERB
Each Wormwood glass is created to perfectly suit a particular style of cocktail. The name Wormwood is taken from the herb “Wormwood”, latin name Artemisia absinthium, which is used in the creation of Absinthe and many other alcohol based drinks.
