Old Fashioned Old Fashioned, Rocks and Lowball Glasses Old fashioned glasses, also known as rocks glasses or low balls are short glasses designed for serving shots of spirits or liquors neat or with ice. The name Old Fashioned comes from the drink bearing its name which is a cocktail made from sugar, bitters and whiskey. It’s said to be one of the oldest cocktails and hence why the glass was named for it.Old fashioned glasses are known for having a wide brim and a thick base. The thick base helps to keep the drink at the temperature at which it was poured and when used with ice helps to keep the drink cool. Whiskey or liqueurs served in an old fashioned with ice won’t become diluted too quickly with fast melting ice.Cooksmill’s range of Old Fashioned glasses are designed for use in bars, hotels and restaurants across the hospitality sector.
