In 2002 an appropiate glass for tequila was designed by George J. Riedel, an heir of a centenary tradition in crafting fine glasses for wines. This glass was designated by the Consejo Regulador del Tequila as the official glass for Tequila. The creation of this glass was made possible by many international experts on tasting, as well as tequila producers and Maestros Tequileros.
The glass has a tall stem, meant to lift the spirit of tequila to the level of worthy, to appreciate and respect this fine spirit. The Riedel glass allows enjoying the different aspects and showing the true characteristics of the tequila. Herbal, flower, caramel and wood notes can be perceived at a deeper level with this specially designed Tequila glass.
