Do you have a mother‐in‐law? I’m pretty lucky to have a great one, but like most mother‐in‐laws, it’s hard to find great gifts for her. She has a home bar, so when I was asked to review these Belvedere Vodka Bottle Rocks Glasses, I was happy to oblige. She’s going to really like them.
Some of you may have seen a Pinterest tutorial where someone takes a liquor bottle and “cuts” it using a string soaked in nail polish remover and a little bit of flame. While that’s an awesome method, I’d be SO afraid it wouldn’t work the way it is supposed to and my project would end up on a Pinterest failmeme…or worse, I’d end up burning my house down. These glasses leave the dirty work to the factory.
How are the made? They’re made out of recycled Belvedere vodka bottles, and they’ve been cut and sanded to imperfection. I say “imperfection” because each glass is handcrafted from recycled bottles, and they’re all unique. It’s a pretty awesome concept. This company is producing something that both reduces the carbon footprint and saves homes all over the country from nail polish remover fires.
The glasses are approximately 4.75” high and 3.25” wide – perfect for your favorite on the rocks drink since they hold 12 ounces each. Obviously, they boast the Belvedere vodka logo that’s on the original bottles, and they just look awesome. Um….they are also dishwasher safe, but to preserve them, it’s recommended that you hand wash them whenever possible.
Let’s talk a little bit about the company who makes these glasses – Bottles and Wood. Bottles and Wood is committed to preserving our environment. It’s a relatively new company – it only started in 2009, but they’ve already made big strides. They take beer, wine, liquor, and soda bottles and
repurpose them into not just glasses, but serving ware, lights, and even jewelry! You didn’t think you could make jewelry out of an old liquor bottle? Take a look at these super cute Grey Goose bangles!
All in all, I think my mother in law will really love this gift, and I’m proud to have the opportunity to work with a company that is so environmentally conscious.
