In 1933, inspired by a trip to the South Pacific, Ernest Gantt opened a Polynesian-themed bar in Hollywood. The original "Don the Beachcomber" soon became famous for serving colourful and potent cocktails, starting a trend that spread across the restaurant industry in the USA.
Although by the '70s this trend had gone from kitschy to tacky, the Tiki culture is back to the cocktail scene. It's back in a colourful way or more classy as done by Wouter Bosch in The Duchess in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Best known for rum drinks, Tiki glasses are perfect to recreate classic tequila based cocktails too. Tiki and tequila are both alive & kicking. And now with Libby's Pineapple glass, Tiki is here to stay!
For almost two centuries, Libbey has been known as the leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of high-quality glass tableware, especially in the North American market.
Libbey hails originally from East Cambridge, Massachusetts, home of the New England Glass Company which was founded in 1818. In 1888, Edward Drummond Libbey, son of the first corporate owner, William, moved the company to Toledo, Ohio. The Northwest Ohio area offered abundant natural gas resources and access to large deposits of high quality sand. The rest, as they say, is history.
