BarLuxe has launched three new lines made with the material: Staxx drinkware, designed for establishments that serve drinks, has a compact storage footprint and features an inner ledge for easy removal of stacked beverageware. It comes in 1.5- and 2-oz shot glasses as well as on-the-rocks and tall sizes. BarLuxe’s Vintage collection consists of wine glasses in fluted design, tulip shape, and multipurpose stemmed and stemless versions. Carafe, a companion to Vintage, has a screw-on lid and flip-open spout for easy pouring.

Tzeng Shyng produces a line of extrusion blow molded stemmed and stemless wine and champagne glasses made with Tritan copolyester for major retailers including Sam’s Club, Wal-Mart, Target, and Pottery Barn.
