More on the actual Riedel tasting in the coming days, but in the meantime a mammoth video (in YouTube terms) of Maximilian Riedel talking about his company, the glasses (and how best to wash them). Filmed in The Cellar Bar & Restaurant in Dublin’s Merrion Hotel.
For those who have IADS (Internet attention deficit syndrome), the following links will skip you through to the different sections of the video direct on YouTube.

Enjoy, and if you’ve any comments fire them in below. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
