We’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. We’ve watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser Gate. But we haven’t seen anything half as cool as the Blade Runner Whiskey Glass.
Yes, Blade Runner fans, now you can relax after a stressful day ‘retiring’ replicants by getting to grips with the very same tumbler used by Rick Deckard in the seminal 1982 sci-fi movie. And when we say the very same we mean it because the moody Blade Runner’s glass wasn’t just a prop, it was a hand-made crystal glass, mouth-blown by artisans at boutique Italian company, Arnolfo di Cambio – and so is this!
Better still, wait till it’s raining, dim the lights so you can just about make out the flickering neon kebab shop sign over the road and get sipping as you pretend you’re studying crime scene photos on your telly: ‘Enhance two twenty four to one seventy six.’ Failing that attempt to seduce your date by explaining how the Tyrell Corporation implanted her memories. It’s a surefire way to ensure she, er, flees your apartment, Rachael style.
An ideal gift for booze-loving Blade Runner fans, this quality piece of retro-modern glassware is more than a prop, it’s a truly iconic drinking vessel with a brilliant backstory.
