If a person orders a Scotch “neat,” they want it by itself and in an Old Fashioned tumbler. But if you served it to them in this crystal shot glass, they may not mind.

Hold the glass in your hand to understand. It has been through a process. First cast by a pewter artisan, then passed to another craftsman who polishes and refines the cast, taking off any burrs and other residuals, the crystal glass is finally attached to the pewter by an ultraviolet process, which cures and matures the adhesive, allowing it to set and permanently adhere. It's a meticulous, human-made object, and the result is as gorgeous as Lake Maggiore. When you take shots from this glass, it feels dignified, and special.

The bottom of the glass is marked with three stamps, signifying, from left to right: the trademark of the workshop, the company, and the 95, indicating the 95% high grade of tin.

Use & Care

When cleaning the glass, use only mild detergent and a lint-free cloth for drying. When cleaning the pewter bottom, also use a mild detergent, and be sure and dry thoroughly. If left wet, the drops will leave a mark.

The glasses are not safe for the dishwasher. When washing by hand, use a rubber mat in the sink bottom, just in case your hands are slippery and the glass drops. Use only warm water and rinse with warm water. Quick changes in temperature can cause cracking and clouding. If you let the glasses air dry and then try to dry them you might end up with streaks or smears.

Production & Design

David Reiss is an American designer who brought this glass, and a number of other Italian crystal and pewter products, to the U.S. He fell in love with the old soul of pewter on a trip to Lombardia, and felt the pewter and crystal products he observed abroad were exceptional in quality and aesthetic, different from what was then available in the United States.

His 17 year old company was the first to bring this very same Italian pewter to the American market. Every one of his products is handmade in Lombardia, FDA approved, food safe and contains no lead.
