RIEDEL takes the same approach to the development of spirit glasses as it does to the creation of its wine glasses. Tasters determine which shape enhances the nose and palate of the most popular spirits and dessert wines, without losing the carefully crafted distillation nuances in the dominance of this type of alcohol.
Riedel glasses have a lifespan of approximately 1500 washes in a dishwasher, the equivalent of 20 years. To avoid scratches, make sure that the glasses are not in contact with other glasses or metal objects in the dishwasher or in the cabinet. If possible, use a glass rack. To avoid stains, use soft water with a low mineral content. To remove stains, use a little vinegar. When washing by hand, use hot water with detergent and rinse the glass gently. Avoid storing glasses in cabinets near strong smelling foods. This could alter and tint the glass or even affect the aroma of wines.
