Chisolm Trail Crafts:
LUXURY HANDCRAFTED TEQUILA & MEZCAL GLASSES
Chisholm Trail Crafts’ Glasses (CTC Glasses) is a small Texas company specializing in fine hand-crafted tequila and mezcal glasses. Our glassware offers an unrivaled blend of functionality, beauty, and the artistic legacy of Mexico, the birthplace of the agave spirits.
The signature line of CTC Glasses is engraved with the “Pepita” [Small Seed] technique. Much like the tequila, the “Pepita“ engraving is a unique Mexican craft that originated in the sixteenth century as an amalgam of European and Pre-Columbian skills and ingenuity. Every one of the featured “Pepita“ designs is a gleaming work of art, hand-cut by the world-renowned Mexican artist José Cruz Guillén.
In addition to hand-cut snifters we carry a range of the venerable Mexican “Jarritos” [Small Jars] for mezcal and tequila. These centuries-old drinking vessels unfold the flavors of the agave distillates as well as any customary snifter, while enhancing the sensorial experience with a touch of tradition and artisanal mastery.
