• Stoneware: Durable and heat resistant, stoneware is perfect for everyday use. 
• Bone china: Recognised as the highest quality dinnerware material, bone china is super strong and chip resistant.

Which glasses should you pick?

The glassware you choose depends on the drinks you'll serve:

1. Soft drinks and water: Always provide tumblers for guests to enjoy water or soft drinks alongside their tipple of choice. 
2. Red wine: Pick tall wine glasses with a large bowl to release the red’s aromas. 
3. White wine: Choose a smaller wine glass to keep the drink chilled and bring the aromas closer. 
4. Sparkling wine: A tulip-shaped flute will retain the fizz for longer. 
5. Beer: A tulip glass is best for aromatic beers, while goblets work well with high-ABV beverages. 
6. Cocktails. Coupe and martini glasses are perfect for homemade cocktails
7. Spirits. Whether it’s a G&T or whisky, serve spirit-based drinks in a rocks or highball glass.
