Cognac glass

Drinking glass with bulbous tulip-shaped goblet and short stem, which can be used for cognac as well as other brandies such as Armagnac, Lourinhã, Metaxa and other distillates (1st picture). The bulbous shape makes it easy to swivel the glass, which is common for brandy. In most countries a very large-bellied glass is used, whereas in France a slimmer glass similar to a Catavino (sherry glass) is common (2nd picture). The glass usually has a pour mark of 4cl, but there are also smaller ones with 2 cl. The glasses are produced by EGO, Riedel and Schott Zwiesel, among others. The EGO glass is equipped with a glass compass at the bottom of the glass and swivels by itself, so to speak.
