I was having Sunday lunch at the weekend at one of my favourite local gastro pubs, and they served us our table water in these clever glasses.
We were enraptured with such a simple thing! How ingenious to recycle old wine bottles as water tumblers?
They just felt right to drink from, alongside a long glass of Merlot and sitting on top of a reclaimed antique farm house table. The weight of them in our hands, the smooth polished rim, the pleasure of the undulating form at the bottom at the base (I’ve checked with our resident wine expert, and that feature of a wine bottle is called a ‘punt’…I didn’t know that either!). All it needed was a slice of cucumber, and it has become my favourite thing.
Often, it’s the smallest details that delight the most. What’s your favourite small detail?
