“A glass doesn’t have to be vintage to be cool. Choose the glass that makes you feel the best about your drink.”
— Andrew Whitehead – @liquorary
Welcome to Episode 3 of the Modern Bar Cart Podcast!
I’m your host, Eric Kozlik, and I’m coming to you today with a glassware crash course interview with Andrew Whitehead, AKA Liquorary.
By day, Andy is a mild-mannered, luxuriously bearded father who takes his daughters to the Baltimore aquarium to see their favorite sea creatures. By night, he’s a vintage glassware expert bent on finding art deco martini glasses and stately, heavy bottomed rocks glasses to grow his collection and spread the joy of home bartending.
In this episode, we talk about almost everything under the glassware sun, including:
- The basic types of cocktail glasses
- Vintage vs. Modern glassware
- How to take care of your cocktail glassware
- Tips for breakage-prone drinkers
- And Much, Much more.
Someone once told me that I’ve got a face for radio, but Andy truly has a voice for podcasting. He’s extremely knowledgeable, well spoken, and really great at making the fine nuances of vintage and modern glassware accessible.
This episode was a blast to record, and I hope you enjoy listening as much as I enjoyed putting it together. So without further ado, sit back and take in the wonderful world of cocktail glassware with Andy Whitehead.
