In a decanter this exquisite, you’ll only want to keep your best spirits inside. Baccarat, makers of fine crystal glassware, is located in Baccarat, France. The company has a rich and lengthy history dating back to 1764, when King Louis XV of France gave permission to found a glass-works to Prince Bishop Cardinal Louis-Joseph de Laval-Montmorency in the small town. With nearly 250 years of experience, you know you can expect each piece to be made with the utmost precision and care.
Baccarat offers many different styles of glassware, but my favorite is the Empire series. The Empire set features intricately designed gold motifs adorning the walls of the crystal decanter, stemmed glass, and tumbler. The Baccarat Empire Decanter, Tumbler, and Goblet retails for $1,200, $462, and $440 respectively. You can find Baccarat crystal sold in fine retails like Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman, as well a handful of luxury boutiques.
