The classic long drink glass, everyone knows it, and everyone drank from it the classic gin and tonic. We also think that the classic long drink glass is ideal for a gin cocktail. As the name suggests, classic gin cocktails can be served and enjoyed very well here. The glass with a capacity of 400ml leaves enough space for ice cubes, curled lime zest, tonic water and of course gin – classic and stylish.

The gin and tonic is a little more unusual to drink in a so-called tumbler. The glass certainly reminds many of whiskey. However, this glass is ideal for a 1: 1 or 1: 2 mixture of gin and tonic. The gin is clearly in the foreground here.

Our Tip for You

Before serving the gin cocktail, place the glass in the freezer for 7 to 10 minutes so that the ideal drinking temperature lasts as long as possible. The ice cubes do not melt as quickly and the chilled tonic water retains its refreshing temperature for longer – perfect for hot summer days.
