The Crystal Imagery Glass Choices Of Famous Figures From History
Throughout the course of history, great figures have risen into the spotlight. Some of these have been warriors, politicians, philosophers, or simply great men and women who changed the world through the force of their powerful personalities. These are people who are well known across the globe, with characteristics that speak to us from ages past, giving us a glimpse into their behaviors and preferences. In this way it is possible to pair each of them with the perfect crystal imagery glass piece to match their style.
Alexander The Great: One of the greatest warriors and commanders in history Alexander the Great conquered the entire known world before he was 30 years old. An avid drinker of Grecian wine, he would have been drawn to the custom engraved red wine glass with his name and initial printed on the piece.
Cleopatra: One of the greatest seductresses in human history, the story of her two great love affairs, first with Julius Caesar, and then with Mark Anthony changed the course of human history. For her selection the heart and arrow wine decanter would be best, engraved with the initials of her romantic partner.
Winston Churchill: Known as a famous drinker who would wake up first thing in the morning to have a little scotch with his coffee, and then continue with that habit throughout the entire day. Never one to stand down from a challenge, Winston Churchill would have appreciated the elegance and daring of the wings and shield monogrammed scotch glass.
Golda Meir: One of the most powerful women in human political history, Golda Meir rose to a position of power in the volatile country of Israel, helping to guide it through the rocky first few years of its independence. With her style and personality, she would be most drawn to the personalized monogrammed tea goblet with her initials on the glass.
Marilyn Monroe: She was one of the most famous actresses of all time, and is a hallmark of style, elegance, and glamour. For those reasons Marilyn Monroe would have been drawn to the initial, circle engraved champagne flute. This fits her flashy, Hollywood feel, while still maintaining a simple grace which was a hallmark of her beauty.
Napoleon Bonaparte: Rising from humble beginnings, Napoleon became the Emperor of France, ruling over territory that stretched the breadth of Europe. Known for his refined tastes, and love of family, he would have chosen the personalized crest decanter with his family seal on it.
Genghis Khan: Known as one of the most savage and ruthless warriors in history, Genghis Khan was also a wise leader, who brought his people to new heights while also uniting the world. Coming from a culture that promoted the consumption of alcohol, he would have been drawn to the engraved beer growlers if given his choice.
Julius Caesar: While Caesar did not partake in alcoholic beverages himself, he did like lavish feasts with his honored guests. So the engraved wine decanter would be a great way for him to demonstrate the pride he had in his family name, while also sharing generously with those who supported him.
Marie Antoinette: “Let them eat cake!” Those are words that sparked a revolution, and they came from the mouth of one of the most famous aristocrats of all time. Known for enjoying the finer things in life she would be most attracted to the typewriter font engraved personalized champagne glasses.
Joan of Arc: A great warrior who led her people into battles against great odds and still came out victorious. Joan of Arc would have preferred the chaste pleasures of the engraved monogrammed diamond goblet.

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.

OUR WHISKEY GLASS STYLE HAS CHANGED. The size is slightly larger, which means of course, MORE ROOM FOR WHISKEY!

If you wish to purchase the old style of our engraved whiskey, scotch and bourbon glass, QUANTITY IS LIMITED. 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.
