Trendy versus traditional

Trendy versus traditional glass drinkware


When it comes to drinking, whether it’s at a bar, restaurant, party, event or in your own home, for some reason a drink always tastes better when it’s in a fancy glass, bottle or, nowadays, even a jar. That’s right, recently the use of glass jars for cocktails, smoothies and other drinks has been growing in popularity. Somehow putting drinks in a different, quirky kind of vessel makes the experience more of a novelty and a treat.


Although glass drinking jars seem to be all the rage, this new trend isn’t everyone’s cup of tea – perhaps you prefer a more traditional look instead. Well, you’re in luck. As we like to try and cater for everyone’s tastes here at Ampulla, in contrast to our new ‘Stag’ glass drinking jar, we’ve also just added a traditional ‘Gallone’ glass bottle to our range. So now you have the choice of swigging spirits in style or gulping ale the good old fashioned way.


Glass drinking jar with handleFor the trend lover

500ml Quattro Stag Glass Drinking Jar

Italians are known for their great sense of style and this Italian made ‘Quattro Stagioni’ glass drinking jar is no exception. Made from quality glass, which is embossed with a logo and decorative motif, this chic 500ml capacity drinking vessel even has a glass handle to make drinking from it a breeze. It’s even useful for pre-made drinks, with its rubber lined gold screw on lid for sealing in freshness.

Despite being called a ‘drinking jar’, this multi-functional Stag jar can be used for storing and serving food too. The clear glass is perfect for showcasing layered meals, such as salads, pasta, noodles and puddings. It almost sounds too good to be true – the only downside is that this jar has a maximum temperature of 50°C, so it’s best suited to cool drinks and food (we don’t recommend filling it with anything that’s very hot or very cold).



Vintage glass gallone beer bottleFor the traditionalist

1 litre Gallone Glass Bottle

If the latest trends do nothing but annoy you and you’d prefer a traditional, trusted style bottle for your product, or you run a vintage themed bar or a rustic country restaurant, the 1 litre glass ‘Gallone’ bottle could be just what you need. The Gallone bottle’s distinct style will grab customers’ attention – you can fill it with beer, cider, wine, fruit juice, water and many other drinks. It’s great for beer and cider festivals, breweries and distilleries, or even your own home brewing. The bottle comes with a black screw on cap, which is lined to help prevent leakage and seal in freshness.

Although it’s quite a contrast to the Stag jar, the Gallone bottle does have a couple of similarities. Firstly, it has a small handle for easy drinking. Secondly, it’s just as multi-functional, so you can use it for much more than just drink. How about maple syrup, sauces, oils and dressings? Or if you’re the creative type, you can turn this bottle into a table display – simply add a few flowers or use it as a candle holder.
