Whisky Live NY 2014 Crystal Imagery Booth

Crystal Imagery CEO, Eric Schuchart at Whisky Live NY 2014

Crystal Imagery had the honor of exhibiting our custom engraved whisky ( whiskey ), scotch and bourbon glasses  at the Whisky Live NY, New York show last evening hosted by Whisky Magazine. We had the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people who love whisky, American whiskey, scotch, and bourbon. Some of the notable distilleries in attendance were Johnnie Walker, Four Roses Bourbon, Jim Beam, Knob Creek, Hudson Whiskey, Talisker, Crown Royal, Buchanan’s Scotch Whisky, Bulleit Bourbon Whiskey, Bushmill’s Irish Whiskey, George Dickel Tennessee Whiskey, Zacapa Rum, Moonshine University, Teeling Whiskey and William Wolf Pecan Bourbon to name a few!

With nearly 2000 consumers in attendance, a full buffet dinner, music, and whisky sampling from many of the best whisky distillers the room was full of good cheer.

We also had the distinct pleasure of meeting Andy Davidson, President of Glencairn Crystal, the company who has designed the world’s most loved whisky snifter. We left him with a gift- our best selling Shield and Banner Engraved Glencairn Glass with his own name deeply carved.

We met the delightful and extremely helpful, Leah Hutchinson of American Craft Distillers who shared some of her best connections in the industry.

We also found the gentlemen at the Kentucky Bourbon Trail to be extremely warm and inviting. We hope to make a trip to Kentucky in the next year or two so we can enjoy visiting their member distilleries and tour the Kentucky Bourbon Trail ourselves to learn about these fine distilleries and the delightful spirits they produce. Included in their prestigious line up are Maker’s Mark, Jim Beam, Four Roses, Wild Turkey, and Woodford Reserve.

There were other impressive media members present, including Tom Fischer of Bourbon Blog who’s contagious smile and dapper attire made me smile each time he passed by. He seemed very impressed with our collection of engraved bar glasses. We were honored he stopped by to chat.

We were also visited by The Huffington Post, Artisan Spirit Magazine and several folks from various European newspapers.

We handed out hundreds of brochures and business cards and had a fantastic time meeting so many fun-loving and spirited people. We look forward to attending again next year.

PLEASE EMAIL US BEFORE ORDERING TO CHECK ON AVAILABILITY. Also note that when you place your order for the old version, you must leave a note during checkout specifying the old style of glass.

 

Cheers!

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

mothers day gift ideas

Mother’s Day gift giving is just around the corner…yes, you’d better start thinking about what gift to give your mother this Mother’s Day! Afterall, she’s nurtured you, scolded you, molded you and loved you unconditionally all your life and she’s got the “scars”  to prove it! You know it hasn’t been an easy job, but this woman has handled it all with grace and has dedicated the best years of her life to raising you. She deserves a truly special Mother’s Day gift and Crystal Imagery has a wide selection of designs, monograms and personalized engraved glass styles to suit any personality.

Husbands, think about getting the mother of your children something really unique this year.  Yes, we do love flowers, but we moms love our wine, coffee, cocktails and champagne even more! A Mommy’s Sippy Cup or personalized sippy cup wine glass or sippy cup coffee mug would be a gift she could use daily and would bring a smile to her face every time! We guarantee you that this gift won’t wilt and die in three days. ;)

Browse our Engraved Gifts for Women page or our specific  Mother’s Day gift selection page to find the right gift for all the special moms in your life today! Allow 2 weeks lead time for us to prepare your special gift and approximately one week in transit.

Cheers,

Sherri

Humorous Gifts, Engraved Barware

ericmugwebWe have a sense of humor here at Crystal Imagery and we have a good time while we work. We think about the special occasions at which our custom bar glasses are being used. We think about the gathering of family and friends celebrating life’s big and little special moments together. We imagine what kind of personalities our customers might possess and how much fun it might be for them to express their individualism with some quirky, edgy, and humorous custom bar glasses. Then we start sketching and before you know it, we’ve got another new custom barware collection to release.

With this most recent whiskey and engraved scotch glass set, we were thinking about the hip and yet sophisticated scotch connoisseur. What would he want in his home bar or mancave? Well here it is, our “Just Cover the Ice”, “Another Round on Him”, “Three Fingers” and “Keep ‘Em Coming” engraved whiskey glass set is not only super cool with its retro artwork, but it’s also a great way to help your guests keep track of their glass throughout the evening.

We had so much fun creating this set, that we actually created TWO VERSIONS of what we believe will become a best seller. One version has the design engraved into the glass without a background and the other has a background carved out of the bourbon glass so the design remains raised from the glass surface, untouched.

Which version is YOUR favorite?
