Digby & Gurasu Launch First English Sparkling Wine Glass
We have enjoyed our fizz from every glass shape under the sun, but somehow, none of them quite did the wine justice. So we set out to design our own! In 2018 we launched the first glass designed specifically for drinking Fine English sparkling wine, through our partnership with Gurasu London, the luxury crystal glassware producer.
England has its own unique terroir and style of fine sparkling wine, and this deserves its own vessel to show it off to best effect. We wanted our glass to be a new British style icon, with its references to Georgian cut crystal antiques yet its ultra-modern crispness. It was also key for us that our glass is technically perfect to enjoy English fizz, with its complexity and lively personality. So, after two years of development, we launched a proper glass for our increasingly world-famous new wine category.
Joanna Maya, Owner of Gurasu London, says: “My long-time desire has been to create a perfectly beautiful & unique glass for English wine. Hence, collaborating with Digby, the luxury English sparkling wine brand, was a no-brainer. We both have common ground and shared values inspired by British heritage, the luxury industry and the pursuit of excellence. The Digby Glass by Gurasu is produced following a tradition of using only the most highly skilled glass-blowers working with a selection of the best raw materials. I strongly believe that The Digby Glass will become a design classic.”
