• Available in 2 popular CE marked capacities 1 pint & 1/2 pint to brim

• Heavier & stronger than the standard range

• Less spillages

• EU manufactured

• Perfect for concerts or outdoor events

 

We’ve listened to our customers, wanting an even more sturdy Flexy-Glass™. We are now pleased to introduce the New Premium Flexy-Glass™ range to our single use glassware range.
