Wine lovers realise the importance of glassware. The right glass can bring out the best qualities in a wine, highlight key notes, enhance aromas and deliver impressive, lasting finishes.
Since its debut in 2009, Lucaris has catered to Thailand’s most discerning wine aficionados with its world-class crystal glasses, which unite Eastern expertise and Western know-how.
Lucaris Crystal glasses are a collaborative effort between Ocean Glass, Toyo-Sasaki Glass and award-winning German designer Martin Ballendat. Their combined knowledge and skills have resulted in the ultimate quality crystal glasses – glasses that are lead-free, yet share the same physical aesthetics as conventional lead-based crystal.
The crystal also results in exceptional clarity and brilliance, as well as superb extra strength and durability.
Lucaris Crystal glasses have been meticulously crafted to the smallest details. Laser-cut rims offer a sumptuous feel. The crystal-clear glass allows wines to express their visual appeal. And the oversized bowls perfectly release every wine’s distinct aroma and nuance.
The key innovation is the Aerlumer®, a patented engraving of five curled lines at the glass bowl bottom, which encourages micro-oxidation and softens the wine as it is gently swirled. To avoid obstructing assessment of the wine’s colour, the signature curl lines are intentionally subtle as well.
Wine and food aficionados, especially throughout Asia and Europe, have rated Lucaris Crystal glasses among the world’s finest, comparable to stemware from major European brands. And many leading Bangkok bars and restaurants trust in Lucaris to translate gastronomic wonders into a truly memorable wine and dine experience.
Visit these four restaurants to discover how Lucaris Crystal glasses elevate food and wine pairings.
