Carafes and jugs: Serving drinks in style

Serving is an art. Especially for festive occasions, stylish table decorations are essential and just as important as the food and drinks themselves. To serve the latter, you need a carafe or jug. It doesn't matter whether you want to serve water, coffee, wine or lemonade. There is a large selection of carafes and jugs - there is a suitable model for every purpose. By the way: Serving from a carafe is also known as serving. This term originated in the Middle Ages. Drinks that were reserved for a prince or king always had to be tasted first. If they were then found to be safe and tasty, they were served - "credere" in Latin.

Carafes and jugs - many variations

Water carafe: While the water carafe is part of the basic equipment of every dining table in southern countries, it still receives relatively little attention in Germany - wrongly so. Water carafes are characterized by a slightly bulbous lower part and a long, narrow neck. In contrast to a conventional water bottle from the grocery store, it has the great advantage that it can be filled with ice cubes or flavor-enhancing ingredients such as strawberries in addition to the water itself. The Menu water carafe with stainless steel lid is designed to fit in any standard refrigerator. The intelligent clip-on lid opens automatically when pouring. Ice cubes, mint and lemon remain securely sealed in the carafe.

Decanter, wine carafe: The aroma of wine develops on contact with air. Both old and young wines benefit from "letting them breathe". However, it is not enough to open the wine bottle and leave it to stand for a while. The aerated surface is too small. A wine carafe, on the other hand, has a bulbous shape. This ensures sufficient contact with the surface of the wine. In the wine carafe Decanter from Iittala , your wine has enough space to develop its full bouquet. Used as a white or red wine decanter, it is also a high-quality eye-catcher that will give your festive table a classic look.

Cooling carafe: Especially in summer, it is important to keep your body hydrated. However, the last thing that refreshes us on hot days is a warm drink. A cooling carafe easily solves this problem and is also a stylish accessory on your table. The way the New Norm Cool glass carafe from Menu works is as simple as it is ingenious. The carafe's cooling rod contains water and can be refrozen as often as required.

Glass jug: Thanks to its large opening, a glass jug is not only suitable for serving hot and cold drinks. It is also an ingenious way of serving smaller dishes such as soups or desserts. The jug from Jenaer Glas is heat-resistant up to 450 degrees and therefore offers a wide range of applications. The insensitive borosilicate glass does not release any substances and is therefore ideal for allergy sufferers.
