Barware at its Best

Tom Dixon's handsome barware series makes a refreshing gift that keeps on giving.

‘Tis the season for both giving and imbibing, and so it is in a timely fashion that celebrated British designer, Tom Dixon, has released a series of perfect, seasonably appropriate items that promise to be the envy of all this Christmas. The contemporary Plum barware range, from the Tom Dixon Eclectic collection, has been executed exquisitely in the form of all bon vivant necessities – a shaker, tongs, decanter, jug, and tall and short glasses.

Serving as functional, futuristic accoutrements to any home drinks display or bar top, the copper-plated Plum Cocktail Shaker’s design features a large belly and more tapered ends allowing for a firm grip and balanced shaking – a slim end cap doubles as a spirit measure, and the similarly copper-plated tongs are equally as attractive and practical. Also impeccably formed and made from mouth-blown, clear glass with hand-painted copper detailing, are the generously proportioned Tank Jug and Tank Decanter, which, aside from acting as appealing water or wine holders, are also excellent for serving summer favourites, Pimm’s and iced tea. And finally, to enjoy these refreshments in ultimate style, the collection includes perfectly weighted, generously proportioned Low Ball glasses that are superbly designed for short cocktails and whiskey, or the elegant, heavy High Ball glasses that are unsurpassed for all long-drinks.

With endless cocktail recipe inspiration and the hot summer days on their way, these exquisite bar essentials will see that special person in your life reaping endless benefits, and are guaranteed to reward you with a lot more than just the joy of giving.

The Eclectic by Tom Dixon Plum barware collection will be available at Simon James Concept Store from the 15th of December.
