Just starting out a cocktail cabinet

I'm just putting together a cocktail cabinet:

So far I have most of the stuff, except bourbon (I'm going for Woodford reserve), Triplesec and a few other errata.

Trouble I'm having is the whiskey glasses (or tumblers) that I want to use for short drinks like G&T's rum and coke or whatever. I have a very definite idea of what I want, but I can't find them in the UK.

Hmmm.. Thinking about using science beakers...
^ That's what I'm after (without the branding - something quite square based, and quite round rimmed, but not 100% of either. Do these have a specific name?

      Thanks dude, I already checked there though - it has to be pretty much exactly the one in the picture. I *know* I've used one before, and I loved the feel of it, but I don't know where.

        Those are perfect.. a little pricey, but at least I have a name!


        Orrefors made a fantastic square based glass with a good weight to it, but I believe it has been discontinued. It is quite pricy on eBay (£25.92/glass). It's called Orrefors Odyssey. My parents have this as their barware and I love it.
