The Impossibly Perfect Cocktail Glass, Circa 1940.

Situated on the boundary between the European and Arab quarters of Cairo, Shepheard’s Hotel, synonymous with luxury and opulence, became home away from home to explorers, artists, writers, intellectuals, and soldiers stationed in Egypt.  

The hotel’s Long Bar, famous throughout the world during the 1940s, was not named for its size, but rather the length of its lines, with British, American, French officers in uniforms enduring long wait times for the excellent drinks.    

With a cocktail glass design that pays tribute to the quintessentially imperial hotel and its legendary bar, striking deep vertical cuts refract light and provide texture, as they wrap around a thick glass base.  Heavy in the hand, each impossibly perfect glass delivers a drink evenly across the palate in an indulgent tasting experience.

The Shepheard’s Hotel 1940 “Long Bar” Cocktail Rocks Glass is offered in a Gift Box Set of 2, for keeping or giving.
