Decorated gin glasses are one of 2018’s coolest trends

If it’s not the gin that’s becoming experimental, it’s the tonic, the accessories… the goblet itself in which we hold our cherished tipple.

Decorated gin glasses are most definitely a thing and we need them all.

Why? These beauties tend to be hand painted and adorned with serious creative design. From spring flowers to bejeweled spectaculars, here’s 5 of the very best you need to check out now.

Fans of rhinestone, check out Stokes Creative Design. These gin glasses come in an assortment of colours from pretty in pink to deep purple.

One of the first decorated gin glasses to truly capture our imagination was this creation from The Gin Kitchen. We love how the colours compliment the bottle design of Dancing Dragontail.

There’s nothing that says summer more than relaxing with this glass in hand.
