We have 2 sets of Skibsglas Brandy/Cognac available. Please choose between them:

Designed by Per Lutken in 1971. The ‘Danske Skibsglas’ or ‘Danish Ship's Glass’ range was designed to have excellent weighting and balance properties (so they didn’t fall over when the boat hit rough seas!) and to feel wonderful against the lips.
It was one of Holmegaard’s most popular ever ranges of stemware and inspired many copies. These are the originals and there is an obvious quality and clarity to the glass plus they are considerably weightier than their lookalikes.
