Old Fashioned Glasses

Glossary of Terms

An old fashioned glass (also known as a lowball glass, rocks glass or whiskey glass) is a type of tumbler with a short, straight sided design usually with a heavyweight base. It typically holds between 4oz and 8oz and is most commonly used for serving spirits and liqueurs on the rocks, such as whiskey and Scotch. An old fashioned tumbler may also be used for serving water, juice or short cocktails.
