Can you pour a REAL standard drink?

According to research most people cannot accurately pour a standard drink.

Let's be honest.  How easy is it to convince yourself that you've poured a standard drink when in reality you've poured 1.5 or even 2. Have you seen the Meme with the giant wine glass saying my doctor told me one glass a day is ok?  If it was only that simple.  In reality if you are trying to monitor your alcohol intake it's far too difficult to guess correctly and far too important to get it wrong.

The common pour line does NOT equal one standard drink

Drinkware in restaurants and bars often have a pour line or plimsoll line. Contrary to popular belief, this is definitely NOT a standard drink volume. Confused?

Our patent pending logo with standard drink measuring system is easy to use. Simply check the alcohol content on your wine bottle and then pour to the appropriate mark.

Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly is a "Standard Drink"?

A standard drink is a unit of measurement of alcohol. Health guidelines often use the standard drink measurement as a basis. The definition of a standard drink also depends on your country.

Most people pour wrong

Studies show the majority of people guess wrong when it comes to pouring a standard drink... In fact we consistently over estimate what is a standard drink.

..drinking no more than two standard drinks on any day reduces the lifetime risk of harm from alcohol-related disease or injury...

National Health and Medical Research Council takes 2 hours for an average woman to get rid of the alcohol from 1 standard alcoholic drink...‘Pumping and dumping’...will not reduce the amount of alcohol in your breastmilk.

Australian Breastfeeding Association

Responsible driver

The definition of a legal standard drink varies between countries. For example Australia and New Zealand uses a definition of 10g of alcohol as a standard drink. In US and Canada, the definition is 14g of alcohol as a standard drink.

Please review the individual product details on this website for a list of countries the glasses are applicable. If you are interested in standard drink glasses for other countries not currently available on the website, let us know and we will be able to tell you if it's possible.

The concentration of alcohol specified on the label of a bottle is not exact. Often it will change from the time of bottling to when you consume it, as continuous fermenting processes can increase the alcohol concentration. The alcohol concentration will also vary with the temperature of the drink. The glasses will have a strict manufacturing tolerance. After factoring in all possible variables, we estimate our glasses would indicate one standard drink +/- 10%.

We have absolutely no idea, so we decided to bring this to the market ourselves. It was challenging developing a measurement system which is both non-intrusive yet functional. We carefully selected glass shapes to be compatible with the measurement system logo and working with manufacturers who could machine blow glasses within a consistent tolerance to minimise error in measurement.

We choose the highest quality crystal for our glassware. We are confident you will be happy with the quality of our product.
