Libbey Foodservice Expands High-End Glassware Offering

TOLEDO, OHIO, May 17, 2014 – (NYSE MKT: LBY) Libbey® Foodservice has expanded its offering of premium, high-end Spiegelau glassware with the new Beer Classics IPA glass and Willsberger collection, adding an elegant flair to tabletops at fine dining establishments.

The new IPA glass is the ultimate way to serve and savor an India Pale Ale. Designed uniquely for this specific brew, the Beer Classics IPA glass features signature details to optimize the aromas of IPAs. The bowl concentrates and intensifies the aromas for a robust tasting experience.

“This glass features stunning ridges and contours on the base creating its signature look,” said Susan J. Dountas, director, foodservice marketing for Libbey. “These features were designed purposefully to optimize the aromas and flavors of the IPA, creating a robust, multi-sensory experience.”

The new Willsberger line offers a variety of glassware ideal for a wide range of wine, beer and spirits. Developed more than 30 years ago in cooperation with Johann Willsberger, the collection remains revered for its timeless presentation of wine. Now extended to include glasses for brandy, whisky, martinis and stemmed pilsners, Willsberger brings a new selection of distinguished glassware to the fine dining table.

Additional new products from Spiegelau include extensions to the Classic Bar collection, including shot and juice glasses and a carafe. The Soiree collection has been expanded with a new shot glass as well, adding a full dimension of product to this elegant line of classic glassware.
