Wine-lovers Alain Langlois and Barbara Wolf-Sykes – with more than 30 years of distilling experience between them – created the Aspergo series for Ritzenhoff. Their aim was to conjure up a glass that had the optimum effect on the taste of the wine it is holding and the range has since been expanded to cater for long drinks, champagne and beer.
Aspergo means "drop" in Latin. This not only refers to the drop in the glass, but was also inspired by the architecture of the new Ritzenhoff showroom. All of Ritzenhoff’s truly original products are handmade using traditions dating back as far as the 18th century, when wood from the dense forests close to the brand’s base in Marsberg, Germany, was used in the first glassworks to fire the melting furnaces that turned quartz sand into glass.
