Glasses Made For Sippin' The Good Stuff

Glasses Made For Sippin' The Good Stuff

With the commercial domestic glass-making industry in a fast decline, it's good to see local craftsmen still making a successful go of it. John and Wendy Gilvey, Michael Benzer and Jennifer Smith founded Hudson Beach Glass in 1987.
Glass making classes are offered by appointment.
Originally setting up shop in a renovated ice house in Beacon New York, they've now expanded to a second location in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (operated by John and Wendy's son, Sean and his wife). Both studios create beautiful glassware of all kinds- bowls and dishes, vases, lighting, as well as fantastic drinking glasses.

Hudson partnered up with Tuthilltown Spirits to create the above whiskey sipping glasses for a special event that the two hosted at their Beacon N.Y. studio for the "Spirit the Hudson" Whiskey Tasting. 

Tuthilltown's Hudson Baby Bourbon Whiskey is certainly one of our very favorite libations, but one could never go wrong when choosing from any other their delicious creations. Since first being introduced to them back in 2013, they've since created quite a destination at their Gardnier, New York address with a full restaurant to boot.
