Trade Monthly prides itself on the validity of its awards and winners. The awards are given solely on merit and are awarded to commend those most deserving for their ingenuity and hard work, distinguishing them from their competitors and proving them worthy of recognition.      

 

Chris Blade – Managing Director of Cumbria Crystal said:

“We are absolutely delighted to win the Food & Drink award 2017 category of ‘Best Luxury Crystal Stemware producer – UK’. Recognition of the incredible skills of our glass blowers and cutters is critical to the ongoing success of the company. We strive tirelessly to produce the highest quality crystal possible through hand production processes, compromise is not an option and as such our products are in demand worldwide by people for whom only the best is good enough. Our small Cumbria based company rivals the giants of Baccarat and St Louis and, as the last luxury manufacturer of British luxury lead crystal, also plays a critical role in keeping a heritage craft alive in the UK.” 

 

Notes:

Cumbria Crystal is the last producer of completely hand-blown and hand-cut, full-lead English crystal in the United Kingdom. Using only traditional glassmaking processes, the small team of 22 highly skilled artisans are committed to making superb crystal of the highest quality, using techniques and processes that have hardly changed since the Roman era. Set in Ulverston, a small town in the beautiful English Lake District, visitors are welcome to watch the choreographed alchemy of glass blowing, browse the Factory Shop and on occasion even try making some glass themselves.
