The Design

The mysterious octopus is a symbol of intelligence, making this the perfect glass for thoughtful contemplation over a drink. Esquire’s 1949 Handbook for Hosts dubbed the highball the ‘high priest of tall drinks’. This glass is essential for your collection, whether you’re serving sparkling water or a refreshing Sea Breeze (vodka, cranberry juice, pink grapefruit juice). Collect the full set, with matching highball glasses, ice bucket, jug and decanters.

Designed in New Bond Street, this glass is handcrafted in Bohemia, renowned for the world’s finest crystal. Expert glass artisans carefully mouth-blow each glass in lead-free crystal, then engrave the intricate curves using a traditional diamond wheel. Our standards are exceedingly high, and these skilled craftspeople train for years to perfect their glassblowing and engraving techniques.
