Unbreakable Drinkware

Everyday Drinkware

When bar owners start mixing company with people who know how to engineer plastics, it’s a recipe for better barware.

BarLuxe got its start when some friends started brainstorming about how to create unbreakable drinkware. It took many tests and the emergence of a new compound from Eastman Chemical—Tritan copolyester—before BarLuxe’s nearly indestructible glasses were ready for action. They have the aesthetics of real glass and unparalleled durability. In testing, BarLuxe even drove a car over one of its glasses,
which survived the impact without breaking. Eastman also rigorously tested the BPA-free Tritan compound against the biggest enemy of conventional polycarbonate and acrylic drinkware: the dishwasher. After hundreds of cycles in commercial and consumer dishwashers, BarLuxe’s barware emerged without a hint of cloudiness, streaks, or cracks.

BarLuxe’s drinkware is ideal for outdoor use, where the last thing you want to worry about is a shattered wine glass. But it’s not limited to outdoors. It’s right at home in your dining room, too—and you won’t feel like you’re reaching for a kiddie cup. That was a key priority for Jason O'Brien, a plastics industry veteran and BarLuxe Co-founder. No one wants durability at the expense of style, and BarLuxe doesn’t sacrifice either.

We’ll drink to that.

Grommet Launch Conversation

    Hi everyone! BarLuxe is excited to partner with The Grommet and offer our new line of drinkware to you. All our products are made from a new patented material from Eastman called Tritan. This amazing plastic is BPA-free and virtually unbreakable yet unlike most plastics, is ultra dishwasher durable. We worked hard to make our designs look and feel like real glass so often people don’t realize they aren’t glass unless they drop one or clink on the table or countertop. This makes them not only perfect for outdoor use but great for everyday and entertaining. We would love to hear what you think or answer any questions you may have. Cheers!

    @FlatironMike Our drinkware is designed here in the US and manufactured in China. During the development process, we had engineers from Eastman onsite to ensure we have the best possible products that meet our strict quality specifications.
