You can now enjoy some Johnny Walker Black Label out of your very own Blade Runner old fashioned glass. They’re the same Whisky tumblers Harrison Ford’s character Rick Decard drank out of in Ridley Scott’s film. And while we can’t tell you if androids really dream of electric sheep, we can tell you that Spirited has been dreaming about these glasses for some time.
Designed by Cini Boeri for Arnolfo di Cambio in 1974, each glass is made from hand-blown crystal and it comes in a 37 cl size. Arnolfo di Cambio is one of Italy’s largest glass manufacturers and has been making crystalware since 1963 and they currently have an entire set of products designed by Cini Boeri on sale. Originally titled the “Cibi” collection, it has since been renamed the “Blade Runner” collection. Decard’s glass is technically the double old fashioned glass. Also available are an ice bucket, a decanter, a vodka glass, a highball glass, and an ashtray.
Considering its stylish Italian design elements and featured placements in one of the most influential movies of the last 40 years, it’s not much of a surprise that the glasses won’t come cheap. You can buy one Blade Runner double old fashioned glass for $107 USD, or two for $187.50. Word on the street is that these glasses are likely to sell out quickly. You can purchase them via the collections official website.
Next year, Johnnie Walker is set to come out with some futuristic drinkware of their own. The Diageo-owned brand will be moving to a paper bottle for their famed Johnnie Walker Black Label. It’s the world’s first ever 100% plastic free, paper-based spirits bottle, made entirely from sustainably sourced wood.
Hopefully, come 2021, we’ll all be living our in retro futuristic glory and drinking Whisky from paper bottles that we’ve poured into Cini glasses.
