In early 1992, a panel of Scotch whisky experts convened at Riedel's headquarters in Austria to test a range of nineteen different glass shapes.

On the basis of this first selection, Georg Riedel undertook further research with the help of master distillers in Scotland. 

This research resulted in a glass that is an elongated thistle shape on a truncated stem. The design incorporates a small, slightly outturned lip which directs the spirit onto the tip of the tongue, where sweetness is perceived, and serves to emphasize the elegant creaminess of top quality single malt whisky.

VINUM became the first machine-made glass in history to be based on the characteristics of grape varietal. VINUM was not developed on a drawing board, but in tasting workshops based on the performance where the content commands the shape. The pleasure of enjoying fine wine starts with the right glass. VINUM is executed in crystal, machine blown in Bavaria, Germany.

  • Riedel's benchmark.
  • Grape variety specific.
  • Dishwasher proof (top rack).
