The True Irish Coffee Glass. A Thing of Beauty in a Gift Box Set of 2, for Keeping or Giving.
At the Irish Whiskey Museum in Dublin, they celebrate the definitive Irish Coffee, in the words of creator Joe Sheridan, made with "cream as rich as an Irish brogue, coffee as strong as a friendly hand, sugar as sweet as the tongue of a rogue, and whiskey as smooth as the wit of the land." Soothing and full of temperature contrasts, it's a cocktail that gives you license to sip and read quietly or talk into the night. It's a pick-me-up when the wind howls during the day or an after dinner relaxer when the company is fine.
Offered is the only true Irish Coffee Glass recommended by the museum, crafted specifically for the steaming, aromatic drink, and much-favored since the 1940s in the pubs of Dublin. As distinctive as a Bentley, the 9-ounce, gently-rounded, clear hourglass bowl sits at the top of a high pedestal foot, elevating the drink off the table or bar while supporting its thickness and comforting weight. Since the glass possesses miraculous properties of heat retention, the easy-to-grasp ring-handle prevents the holder from feeling any discomfort.
Lastly and comprehensively, the glass flares out at the top to ensure a perfect floating layer of heavy cream. After all, in Ireland they say the love is at the top where the cream sits. Ideal for birthdays, weddings, housewarmings and more. Offered in Gift Box Set of 2, for keeping or giving.
