Article by VT Digger:

AO Glass operates on 416 Pine Street in Burlington Vermont and has been in business since 2007. The glass team is now back in the studio, following all the recommended safety precautions.

After a pause in time created by the COVID-19 virus, the creative, skilled, and seasoned team at AO Glass is presenting a whole new in-house collection. First out in the Vermont Strong Collection of 2020 is the Cocktail / Whiskey Glass.

Rich Arentzen, Co-Owner of AO Glass, says “As a company, we have resources to create functional objects that reflect a sense of our community as we reenvision how we interact with our environments and each other”.

The original handblown AO-VERMONT cocktail/whiskey glass is a versatile go-to glass to have around the home that you can be proud to own or to give as a gift. These are perfect for savoring some of your favorite liquids, whether you’re in the Green Mountain State or far from home. Pair these with a bottle of spirits from one of our fantastic Vermont-based distilleries. And share the warmth.

AO Glass is a leading producer of Hand Blown Glass in North America, supplying iconic lighting companies with high-quality glass components including Hubbardton Forge among others. Last year AO Glass collaborated with Whistle Pig in to produce the collectible bottle stopper for their 18 year old Rye.
