LSA International Sponsor the Best Interior Designer Blog Award at #IBA17

LSA International are masters of glassware and tableware. Each new collection released is built around a central theme which emanates throughout each piece. Earlier in 2017 a brand new collection was launched focused entirely of the spirit of the moment – gin. The range which contains numerous glasses including balloon, highball and cocktail varieties to extensive serving sets to showcase the spirit at its best is a must have for any gin lover. Here the IBA Blog takes a look at the LSA International GIN Collection…

Wonderfully simple yet exceptionally stylish, the LSA International GIN Collection is crystal clear to allow gin’s subtle nuances and many garnish options to shine through. To celebrate the launch of the collection a master mixologist was tasked with created signature gin recipes designed to be drunk from the vessels in the range. Developed to suit all palettes from herbaceous infusions to citrus punches, each cocktail has its own recommended serving glass and here are our favourites:
