Gin is one of my favorite drinks, whether I’m using it in a seasonal cocktail during the winter or something light and floral during the summer. Whether it’s a cozy night in or a get-together with friends, a gin cocktail can really pull it all together. But sometimes, finding the perfect gin glasses for your tastes and occasion can be a bit of a struggle.
Luckily, I’ve found a couple of glasses that I really like and I’m super thrilled to share them all with you. From budget-friendly to the finest crystal, this guide has got you covered. Hopefully, you’ll be inspired to purchase one for your next dinner party!
6 BEST Gin Glasses
I just HAD to start off with the Copa glass by Dartington Crystal. Also known as balloon glasses because of their round bodies and super thin necks, experts say that Copa glasses are perfect for gin and tonics.
This is because its bulbous shape helps trap the aromas around the smaller opening. Meanwhile, the large center allows for plenty of room to put in as much ice, lime, and liquor as you like.
I also love it because the shape helps keep the ice from melting too quickly, so you can enjoy your drink for much longer. It’s also on Amazon Prime, which means free shipping if you have a subscription!
You know I’m a superfan of Crate and Barrel (you check out my latest review of Crate and Barrel mirrors here), so I had to include this super cute stackable ribbed highball glass.
A highball glass is amazing because they’re a bit larger, meaning you have space to get a little creative with your cocktails. You can add all different kinds of mixers, toppings, and drinks to mix together the cocktail of your dreams.
Its design is also SO adorable and I love that it’s stackable so it’ll display nicely if you decide to buy more than one!
Okay, I have to stop myself from listing too much Crate and Barrel, but I couldn’t resist including this ADORABLE hatch rocks lowball glass. It’s the perfect size to enjoy a relaxing drink straight from the bottle.
The glassware is cut to resemble crystal but is also super affordable, which means you’re able to get that high-class look while still staying budget-friendly! You can also pair it with other designs from Crate and Barrel’s Hatch series to create a complete set.
It’s also incredibly durable and dishwasher-safe, which is a plus.
The Viski Heavy Base Martini Glasses set is the perfect addition to your home bar. They’re a set of two and the CUTEST little glass to share your martinis in both formal and casual settings.
All Viski glasses are crafted from lead-free crystal, meaning they’re super durable, especially compared to lower-quality lead-crafted glassware. They’re also used by professional bars and mixologists, so you know you’re getting your money’s worth!
These glasses have a super sleek and sophisticated look to them with their sleek lines and heavy base, which I absolutely love.
The Dory Cocktail Glass from Urban Outfitters is hands down one of the most unique, special glass designs I’ve seen out there. Not only does it come in a handful of super versatile colors, but it’s also an exciting shape that would work amazingly well as a decorative display piece.
For design risk-takers, these 14.5-ounce cocktail glasses will definitely turn your bar cart into a statement pedestal.
If you’re a fan of fun pieces like these, definitely check out Urban Outfitters’ home catalog because they literally have so many! This is def going on my to-buy list this month.
Gin and tonics are such a staple, so why not give them the perfect glass with this absolutely gorgeous Viski piece? It’s yet another set of two as well, which means it’s perfect to share with a friend or partner on a classy night in!
I especially love the design of this glass because it’s SO sleek and feminine while also remaining very neutral, making it compatible with any space. They’re 14 ounces too, which is also fairly large in terms of gin glasses!
The glass’ wide mouth helps to enhance the gin’s natural aroma and improves its overall flavor while the balloon glass allows more room for ice. Again, the glass is made from Viski’s trademark lead-free crystal, giving it extra durability and high-quality clarity.
Those were all my favorite gin glasses at the moment! I really love experimenting with glassware because it can be such a great way to add decor to your living space while still keeping it from looking too cluttered.
I hope this list of the best gin glasses helped you narrow down your picks for your next shopping trip! If you decide to try out any of these products, be sure to tag me on Insta @wtfab.
