The Hitchcock-Inspired Glass for Generous Cocktails or Pours of Whiskey.
Like many of the characters in his films, Alfred Hitchcock was partial to a good drink. To honour the great man, offered is a set of whiskey glasses from The Globe, an English public house located opposite the Royal Opera House at 37 Bow Street, Covent Garden, London. The pub was the setting for several scenes in Hitchcock's penultimate feature film "Frenzy," and the glasses have become part of the Alfred Hitchcock Collection.
These are bold yet dignified glasses, the kind favored by Sir Alfred. From the moment you feel its hefty weight in your hand, you realize this is no ordinary glass. A wide brim allows aromatics to expand with considerable reach on straight pours, and a 1-inch-thick base handles muddled drinks, a solid foundation for substantive walls with a cross-pattern cut exuding privilege and character. For generous cocktails or pours of liquor with plenty room for ice. Offered in a Gift Box Set of 2, for keeping or giving. Authorized by the Alfred Hitchcock Estate.
