Shot glass cabinet
As selecting the right glassware for fine dining is important, equally necessary is the need for
enhancing the ambience and presentation of associated dcor objects. Glasses for special use,
like wine, cocktail or shot glasses, need to be placed strategically where they can be admired
safe from clumsy hands. Shot glass cabinets are designed for adding elegance to the serving
style and giving certain flair to guest servicing standards. Apart from the obvious aesthetics,
specialized glassware is created to complement the drink it is intended to serve but just as
often, these serve as conversation pieces too.
What is a shot glass?
As the name suggest, a shot glass is used for serving shots straight up. In addition, shot
glasses can also be used to measure the amount of alcohol used in other mixed drinks and are
a great addition to any bar. Even when the host does not intend serving shots, the presence of
these specialized glasses can add to the sense of fashion and bartending which any fine dining
experience calls for.
Features of a shot glass cabinet
The shot glass cabinet can be a simple rack with divisions in them to store small or big shot
glasses and these normally have removable/adjustable shelves to fit in the size of shot glasses
a collector might have. The simpler versions are generally unobtrusive and quite often are parts
of larger pieces of furniture, such as hutches and vanities. Large shot glasses or Shooters, need
greater space for display, therefore exact measurements are required before purchasing a
display cabinet for these. The cabinets can be a combination storage-display unit for both big
and small shot glasses and come equipped with sliding glass front or doors and can be either
wall hung or countertop units.
