For the Duvel Designer Glass 2022, the latest edition of the Duvel Collection, Duvel collaborates with the illustrator and DJ Franky Sticks from Rotterdam. As far as he is concerned, it’s all about movement – whether it be waves of music, people on the dance floor or lines on a canvas. With every movement, something new, something quirky, something devilish can emerge. This is how Franky Sticks and Duvel found each other on the cutting edge of creation, experimentation and innovation. The new Duvel Designer Glass 2022 will be available as of 5 September and will be launched on Thursday 1 September during a jam session hosted by Franky Sticks in his beloved Rotterdam.

We wrote about it just this week: a special glass that people can take home with them. The Duvel Collection is one such example; when you buy a 4-pack, you get 1 Duvel x Franky Sticks glass for free. It is also nice for bars or restaurants to develop a special glass that you can give home! Or a special holder in which you can put a glass? Check out this article for more details.

Don’t you enjoy the outdoors again, being able to meet friends on a terrace? We do and we are curious which drinks are popular this year besides the standard white wine, rosé, white beer, special beer and non-alcoholic beer. The popularity of the Aperol Spritz remains undiminished, but we are seeing more and more versions of the Spritz and the non-alcoholic drinks are especially popular during the day! We have also spotted special glasses for drinks, a trend for 2022 as a colleague called it, but whether you can talk about it as a trend? During my time as a stewardess, I was given a small Buddha statue in which a plastic glass with a cocktail was placed at a Japanese Steakhouse, you could keep the Buddha. These Buddha’s were so popular with friends that I regularly enjoyed a cocktail there. And that was really a long time ago… ^Marjolein
