What makes Riedel stemware unique

How does the quality of Riedel's new lead-free crystal compare to its 24% lead crystal glass?
Riedel recently began the process of converting all of its glassware from lead to lead-free glass crystal, and eventually all of Riedel's glassware will be lead-free. We compared lead vs the lead-free (Sommelier Bordeaux Grand Cru glasses side by side, and found it difficult to distinguish between the glasses. It seemed like the lead-free glasses had thinner stems and rims, while the 24% lead glasses seemed slightly heaver in the hand. There was no discernable difference in the balance, clarity or construction of the glasses.

Making spirits bright


Received my glasses on time and well packed. Beautiful design with wide base. Perfect for those special drinks.

There are better options


First, I'm a big Riedel fan - I can't say enough good things about the vinum series wine glasses.
I'm a big fan of distillates - Eaux de Vie, Cognacs, Scotches, and others - I have more than 50 examples. That said, this little glass - 3 oz - is the worst of the bunch. It robs both bouquet and flavor. The nose is too narrow and the bowl is too small. Small tulip shaped glasses - 4 to 7 oz (and at 1/3 the price) - are far superior.
The glass is very cute though - and that is its strength. It is good for casual sipping and showing off, but it is not good for hedonism.

Interesting - Sort of Fun

This odd shaped glass is a good excuse to taste your way through the collection of spirits in the cabinet. They highlighted the brightness of the Michigan Cherry and nicely highlighted Drambuie.

Not a necessity, but they are a lot of fun and help focus on the individual mixed drink ingredients as you build your "taste catalog" on the way to better customizing your cocktail selections.
