Good wine should be made with a good cup? It turns out that domestic liquor glasses are so advanced that they are no worse than Western glasses.

I don't know if you have found that when foreigners drink good wine, they usually have to match a very high-end cup, such as a goblet for wine and a classical cup for whiskey with ice. Although these two kinds of cups do not have any pattern, but compared with drinking beer to give the feeling is not a class.

In fact, domestic liquor also has the saying of "good wine with a good cup". I believe that senior liquor friends have their own set of special wine tasting utensils. On the one hand, good drinking utensils can greatly improve the drinking experience. On the other hand, using professional drinking utensils will leave a deep impression on people. You are a person who understands life.

Therefore, compared with buying good wine, the author actually suggests that you buy a set of good wine utensils first. The following author will talk with you about wine glasses.

Every era of drunkard drink like a good glass

Since ancient China, nobles have been used to using high-end wine utensils to hold liquor. At that time, they were mainly bronzes and ceramics. Bronze wine glasses had different names for each kind of wine glass, such as jue, bottle, gong, etc., and there were very exquisite and complicated patterns. It was easy to know at a glance that the people used them were not simple.

In modern times, there are usually two kinds of common liquor glass materials: one is a glass liquor glass, and the other is a ceramic liquor glass. The glass/crystal cup is transparent and can directly observe the color and movement of the liquid in the cup. Ceramic/earthenware liquor glasses are opaque, but decorative patterns will be added to the cup body.

Exquisite domestic liquor glass

According to the type, there are three kinds of common white wine cups on the market: wonton cup, ruyi cup and ceramic cup. The wonton cup is made of glass, also called "bullet cup". Because the capacity is about 15-30ml(2-6 yuan), one drink at a time is more in line with the drinking habits of the Chinese people, so it is also called "one drink at a time", which shows the charm of heroism without overdrinking.

The second kind of Ruyi cup has a handle at the bottom. The upper body glass is slightly deep and arc-shaped. It is generally made of glass and has a capacity of about 10-15ml(1-2 yuan). The capacity is smaller than that of a cup and is more suitable for tasting the flavor and taste of wine.

Ceramic cups are generally made of porcelain stone, kaolin, quartz stone, mullite firing, the appearance of a glass glaze or painted patterns, is China's traditional wine container. This kind of wine glass has various shapes. Although it is not like glass material, the flow of wine can be seen from the outside, but the exquisite pattern shape is more in line with the national style aesthetic of the Chinese people, and is also the key point to distinguish it from western wine glasses. The cultural heritage is profound and without losing the sense of high-level.

In general, Chinese liquor glasses are different from Western large-capacity, large-gap and simple style. Domestic wine glasses are more refined, and the pattern of ceramic cups is even more special, which may also be related to the generally high degree of spirits in my country.
