The Design
This mesmerising octopus ice bucket is designed in New Bond Street and handcrafted in Bohemia, renowned for the world’s finest crystal. Expert glass artisans carefully mouth-blow each piece in lead-free crystal, then engrave the intricate, three-dimenional details using a traditional diamond wheel. Our standards are exceedingly high, and these skilled craftspeople train for years to perfect their glassblowing and engraving techniques.

The mysterious octopus is a symbol of intelligence and insight — perfect for drinking (and thinking) with erudite friends. Cocktails sparkle with wit and inventiveness, a testament to human creativity. Legend has it that French existentialism practically owes its existence to cocktails. Simone de Beauvoir describes glittering evenings in Paris, where sparkling conversation was accompanied by apricot cocktails in the Rue Montparnasse, as well as the classic Martini, Bronx and Sidecar (cognac, Cointreau, lemon juice, lemon twist). Collect the full Octopus set, with matching highball glasses, ice bucket, jug and decanters.

Asprey Moments

THE ASPREY SWAN

This masterpiece of the silversmith's craft was created in the Asprey workshops in the 1980s. Lifelike and exquisitely graceful, it was the pride of the Rosalind and Arthur Gilbert's villa in LA. It has been displayed at London's Victoria & Albert museum since October 2016.
