A very popular range we have here at Inn Supplies is our Plastic Champagne Flutes which are available in both the ‘Reusable Bar Supplies’ and ‘Disposable Glasses’ category. They come in 5 different main styles that cater for all kinds of occasions.
Our disposable champagne flutes can either come in a ‘tulip’ or ‘coupe’ style shape. The excellent quality of our flutes are designed to suit any occasion including all types of formal parties and events.
The tall and thin appearance of the ‘Tulip Champagne Flute’ is iconic, instantly bringing sophistication and class to mind. The shape of the glass creates carbonation, causing the bubbles to cluster then quickly disperse upwards giving the champagne more intensity and a look of elegance to complement any soiree or event. Our plastic clear Champagne flutes are injection moulded in virgin food-grade crystal styrene, which gives extra rigidity and perfect clarity. Unlike many other plastic champagne flutes our ‘tulip’ flutes come in a single piece and don’t need to be fitted together. We also stock this product in black, which exhibits a premium glossy appearance.
Before the ‘tulip’ shape became popular, the ‘coupe’ was the glass of choice for drinking Champagne. This ‘saucer’ shaped glass was particularly prominent in the prohibition-era of the 1930’s and then again in the 1960’s. TV shows like “Boardwalk Empire” and “Mad Men” have caused this vintage drinking glass to make a serious comeback, as you will now find them being used to serve cocktails in any trendy bar in London. In comparison to the ‘tulip’ shape, the ‘coupe’ generates less bubbles which gives less fizz to the champagne.
When a stronger better quality flute is needed we also stock reusable champagne glasses. We have two different types of reusable glasses: Elite (Polycarbonate) and Econ (Crystal Polystyrene) items.
Our Elite Polycarbonate plastic flutes look and feel almost exactly the same as their glassware counterpart but are virtually unbreakable. Their extra durability makes them perfect for barware at parties and events because the risk of glass being broken is eradicated. This glass is also available in black, with a lovely glossy finish. Our cheaper Econ reusable champagne glasses are almost identical to the polycarbonate ones, but are not quite as strong.
