Hello Beloved Members,

This is Ly Gia Vien. We would like to write to you about home bars and how you can turn your own space into an intimate and personal den.

The home bar has been making a comeback for the last few years, and for good reason. Having your own bar area in your home creates a great space for entertaining guests, as well as a functional place to pour yourself that after-work drink. It’s also an opportunity to add some personal flair to your space by incorporating some custom-made furnishings and accessories.

So…what is a Home Bar?

A home bar is the area of your home where you can create the perfect drink or pour your own glass of wine. Home bars are typically found in the kitchen or living room, are a great place to entertain guests, and are functional spaces to store your liquor and drinks. If you’re looking to create a sleek and sophisticated bar space, you’ll want to invest in high-quality custom bar stools, bar cabinets, and bar tops. A home bar can be anything you want it to be! If you are not interested in building an actual bar, you can still create a space for your guests to pour their own drinks. There are many ways to style a home bar. We’ve created a guide to help you get started.

Things to Consider When Buying Glassware for Your Home Bar

For a bar that’s as stylish as it is functional, you’ll want to invest in the best bar glasses and bar accessories that fit your budget and style. To ensure that you’re purchasing the best bar glasses for your home bar, it’s important to consider the following factors. Type of glass – There are many different types of bar glasses and glasses for specific drinks, so be sure to choose the right ones for the drinks you plan to serve at your home bar. Capacity – Many types of glasses come in different capacities, so you’ll want to make sure the glasses you choose hold the right amount of liquid for the drink you’re serving. For example, a standard wine glass holds around 9 ounces of wine. Warranty – Make sure the bar glasses you choose come with a warranty. This will cover any breakage or defects that may occur with the glasses. Design – You may want to consider the design of the glasses when shopping for barware. Some glasses may be more aesthetically pleasing than others.

But First, Coffee

Despite common belief, your daily coffee provides more than just an energy boost. Coffee is high in antioxidants and vitamins including riboflavin, magnesium, and potassium, which can help lower depression, and reduce the chance of developing type 2 diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, liver disease, liver cancer, and many more. 

So why not make drinking coffee your daily supplement at home? 

Unlike any other coffee ware that is being sold on the market, Kinto Cast Espresso & Kinto Cast Coffee Cup give you another point of view. The angle of the handle is designed to relieve stress on the wrist, taking into account the changing center of gravity.

Drink Enough H2O

Nothing like a cold glass of water to quench thirst, especially during the hot summer days. Water is an excellent beverage choice since it keeps your body hydrated, is easy to obtain, is reasonably inexpensive, and is calorie-free.

Kinto Water Glass gives you a simple yet attractive design, following the principle of “uninterfering design” idea. Their water glass proportion has been carefully considered so that your movement is smoother. The cup’s rim extends slightly outwards, allowing beverages to flow gently into your mouth with a slight inclination. A simple yet functional and elegant.

The water glasses from Stölzle Lausitz’s New York Bar series are equally noteworthy. 

Classic, cylindrical shapes with straight lines govern the style of the glasses, bringing a classy lounge environment into your home bar. The glasses are not only stable but also well balanced due to the thick glass bottom and solid construction quality. This is also a great entry-level collection, especially because all glasses are dishwasher-safe.

Lager Than Life 

Light to moderate beer intake may be linked to some health benefits. Though beer is often viewed as empty calories, it contains some minerals and vitamins. 

Drinking one or two standard beers per day (350-700ml) may have positive effects, such as benefits to your heart, better blood sugar control, stronger bones, and reduced dementia risk.

Make it even more enjoyable! Pouring beer into your favorite glass allows you to enjoy everything it has to offer. Admire how it looks. Doesn’t the sound of it pouring into the glass make your mouth water? Stick your nose in there and take a big whiff. Enjoy the aroma, even when it’s in a bottle or can.

Our pick for beer connoisseurs is this Beer tulip from Stölzle Lausitz’s Berlin collection: the belly encapsulates the aroma substances, the taper accentuates the foam crown, and the short stem ensures stability wherever you leave it.

if you don’t enjoy the weight usually the beer glass carried, or the messy aftermath of drinking beer behind – Japanese glassware designer Kinto also has something to offer.

Kinto Cast Double Wall Beer Glass

Kinto Cast Double Wall Beer Glass is extremely thin and light while maintaining material strength. The double walls insulate and keep the drink hot or cold for longer, and keep the outside wall of the glass at a comfortable temperature to hold. Double walls discourage condensation so your table will not get wet. Messy-free!

Home Is Where The Wine Is

Wine flies when you’re having fun! A glass of wine a day keeps the doctor away or so they said. 

However, if you can’t smell the wine you’re drinking, you’re missing out! When we eat or drink, our brains interpret the aromas we smell as flavor. Approximately 80% of what we taste does not occur in our mouths; it occurs on our noses. So it’s always good to have a variety of stemware for your wine. 

If you have small cabinet space then be creative! Wineglass isn’t just for wine anymore. You can definitely serve a variety of spritzers in wine glasses, as well as cocktails and some homemade desserts.

Here are our favorite picks: 

Kinto Kronos Double Wall Range

With a double wall structure, Kinto Kronos makes liquids appear to float in the air. The ring provides support for your fingers and the cup has an optimal sipping angle. They are also ideal for serving desserts or appetizers whenever you have friends over for a little potluck. 

On the other hand, if you dabble in mixology yourself you might enjoy something as classic as this Stoelzle Weinland piece.

Stölzle Lausitz’s Weinland Pinot Burgandy

It’s a bulbous shape on a stem that’s great for a garden G&T since the smaller opening preserves the scents of the gin, but the large bowl allows for lots of ice and herbs to enhance the flavor. The design also helps to keep the ice from melting too quickly, which is vital for keeping the drink’s integrity longer.

For wine lovers, this expansive wine goblet offers a timelessly classic frame, especially for Pinot grape varieties. The glass is extremely durable due to its stable, shorter stem.

Happiness Is The whisKEY 

Despite its many facets, whiskey may be one of the most fascinating categories in the world. It’s micro and macro, whisky and whiskey, and all of those things at once. In fact, the category is no longer exclusive to Scotland, with more than 20 countries producing it. Whisky has been highly embraced in both western and eastern markets, owing to mixology and popular culture trends.

It’s not a surprise today when you can find a bottle of whiskey in almost any household. 

Whatever poison you choose to stock – either top shelves or bottom shelves – suitable drinkware may alter the entire experience. Some are intended to emphasize the spirit, while others are designed for cocktails, neat pours, and more. We’d argue that a well-stocked home bar should include a variety, and here are what came to our mind:

Stölzle Lausitz’s New York Bar Whisky Tumbler

This is our ideal entry-level whiskey tumbler: Minimalist elegance. Classic, cylindrical shapes with straight lines determine the design of the glasses and bring a stylish lounge atmosphere into your home bar. The exquisite heavy glass flatters the hand and pampers the palate with pure whiskey – the richness of flavors unfolds here by itself. 

At the same time, Its wide and robust base makes it ideal for ‘muddling’ cocktail ingredients, to serve up any number of classic cocktails. You never know when you will want to have something different! 

No Champagne, No Gain

Researcher suggests that after drinking a glass or two of champagne, your mood changes to become less aggressive and more social. Whether it’s a new year, a new job, an anniversary, or an engagement, it’s always good to have another reason to celebrate these small achievements. Enjoy life a little more with a nice glass of champagne! 

Kinto Korus stemless champagne glass offers more than just a trendy, modern design for special occasions or everyday use. They optimize the bouquet, taste, and effervescence of champagne, prosecco, mimosas, sparkling wine, or any fruity fizz. Worry no more about them getting knocked over when placed on the edges of tables, counters…. or even for outdoor use like large gatherings or dinner parties.

However, if you would like to keep the drink contents cool and free from (hand) temperature, Stölzle Lausitz’s Flute Champagne Classic may be your handier drinkware. No-frills, therefore timeless design for elegant drinking culture. Easily swirl your wine, encouraging it to breathe with just a small movement.

Save Water, Drink Cocktails

Alcohol – in moderate amounts – is good for your health. Moderate consumption is defined as one drink per day for women and no more than two drinks per day for males. One serving consists of 237ml of malt liquor or 45ml of distilled spirits such as gin, vodka, rum, or whiskey.

The small Grandezza cocktail glass from Stölzle Lausitz offers a crystal-clear goblet with a drawn stem. Ideal for staging any martini, cosmopolitan, or daiquiri cocktail. A feast for the eyes and the palate.
