You can now sip your favorite spirit while admiring the topography of the world’s tallest mountain courtesy of the Everest whiskey glass.
Toronto-based company Liiton launched the uniquely stunning bar cart accoutrement via a successful Kickstarter campaign. With a $10,000 targeted fundraising goal, backers pledged $37,000 in just 36 hours and nearly $160,000 to date.
The one-pound crystalline glass tumbler's major selling point is that it's the first to feature a 3D-model of Mount Everest at a 1:230,000-scale. According to Liiton, whiskey is aerated and oxidized as it flows around all three sides of replica, causing the alcohol to evaporate and waft up to the nose.
The mini-mountain also contains a "Chill-Charge System" that can cool a drink in 18 seconds when stored in the freezer. Single, double and triple pour levels correlate with the base camp, middle camp and summit.
Liiton is also making add-ons to compliment the glassware, including a 1-liter Everest decanter, a leather-wrapped mirrored serving tray that reflects ambient light through the glassware, and matching cork coasters.
There are a number of packages offered on Liiton's Kickstarter. A pledge of $49 will get you a set of four Everest glasses, a pledge of $89 adds on the Everest decanter, and a $299 pledge includes six glasses, the decanter, tray, coasters, and a laser-engraved monogram.
