We were asked to design and develop a back bar glorifier that could also be used by staff to present full bottles for sale with shot glasses, to be consumed at tables.
The units consisted of injection moulded “horse shoes” that angled back from the acrylic and metal base surface for back bar display, and could be placed flat within the unit for storage. For serving with shot glasses, the horse shoe slotted over the neck of the bottle, with the shot glasses balanced in each of the circular spaces. The engineering of this unit required significant inertia and centre of gravity testing, to ensure the set of full shot glasses could still balance as the volume of the bottle contents decreased.
This product was for use in local markets in Brazil and Russia, so we produced full manufacturing drawings for tender locally. In addition, we produced two prototypes to accompany the drawings.
