Zwiesel Glassware from


SCHOTT ZWIESEL, ZWIESEL KRISTALLGLAS, TRITAN PROTECT, what are they, how do they differ, what do they mean to your customers?

ZWIESEL KRISTALLGLAS – Inspired by Professionals.

ZWIESEL KRISTALLGLAS has been at the peak of crystal glass manufacturing for over 140 years in matters of table culture, drinks and living. The company meets the high requirements of both professional users and private households: The collaboration with top gastronomers and renowned designers as well as innovations in sustainable material and products make ZWIESEL KRISTALLGLAS one of the world’s leading providers.

Perfection created from passion. Three successful brands.

Three strong brands cover the entire spectrum of wine and pleasure culture and provide elegant accessories for the interior.

‘The glass used by the professionals’ is the slogan of the SCHOTT ZWIESEL brand, which has become a world-leader in the high-end international gastronomy and hotel sector with the internationally patented Tritan® crystal glass.

A new mainstay of the company has been responsible for expansion in the Food & Cooking department since 2007: the German traditional brand JENAER GLAS is a byword for functional kitchen aids made from heat-resistant borosilicate glass in a beautiful timeless design. ZWIESEL 1872 is the company’s lifestyle brand – with exclusive, mouth-blown crystal glass collections. The brand’s product world is shaped by oenological excellence and design for professional applications and enjoyment at home.

ZWIESEL KRISTALLGLAS. The ecological glass for special enjoyment.

ZWIESEL KRISTALLGLAS, founded in the Lower Bavarian town of Zwiesel in 1872, sells its products in over 120 countries around the world.

Systematic investments in new technology and products, clear design positioning and sustainable actions form the core of the company philosophy.

The internationally patented Tritan® technology propelled the company to the position of innovation leader within the industry.

By 2008, ZWIESEL KRISTALLGLAS was already certified within the framework of the ISO 14001:2004 environmental management system. Then in 2010, as part of a so-called ‘ecoprofile’, all of the environmental influences relevant during the manufacturing process of Tritan® crystal glasses were measured, analysed and evaluated: a reliable foundation upon which to act in line with the highest environmental standards going into the future.


The success story is being driven forward by the new TRITAN® PROTECT procedure, which guarantees double security against broken stems. A specially tempered stem surface protects against scratches and also increases resilience and resistance to breaking. If the glass is tipped over or exposed to heavy strain in the dishwasher, it is even better protected. In the production department, all signs point towards sustainability: all three melting tanks have been converted to resource-friendly oxy-fuel technology. In doing this, the company is setting a global standard for sustainable thought and action for the entire industry.

Partners for the retail, hotel and gastronomy industries around the world.

More than 3,000 partners from the peak of the gastronomy and hotel sector place their trust in these high quality products. As well as a partner network of international hotel groups, airlines and cruise companies, ZWIESEL KRISTALLGLAS is also the exclusive glass partner for luxury groups such as ALTHOFF and CAPELLA HOTELS & RESORTS along with the JEUNES RESTAURATEURS D’EUROPE and the Association of German Quality Wine Estates (VDP). Michelin star chefs such as Tim Raue (RAUE, Berlin), Christian Jürgens (GOURMETRESTAURANT ÜBERFAHRT, Rottach-Egern), Sven Elverfeld (AQUA, Wolfsburg) and Johann Lafer (LE VAL D’OR, Stromberg) value the fine gourmet glasses and innovative products for day-to-day use in their restaurants.

Glass and household device experts are working on new ideas together as part of a collaboration between ZWIESEL KRISTALLGLAS and the major European household manufacturers BSH Bosch and Siemens Hausgeräte GmbH. Within the framework of this partnership, technological competence and commitment to innovation ensure that the finest crystal glass can now be easily machine-cleaned in the home.
