Aged & Ore’s handblown, double-walled glasses have a neat trick – the eight lines on their sides aren’t just aesthetic. Each one indicates an ounce of liquid, making them perfect for measuring cocktail ingredients. They’re great for whiskey too, thanks to their bell-shape, and each glass comes with a spherical ice mold.
