Carlisle Epicure and Mingle Series

Carlisle Epicure and Mingle Series

We just finished the NRA show and all I kept hearing about was this new glassware, can you walk me through this? Absolutely we have 2 new lines of drinkware, one is the Epicure cased collection and the second one is the Mingle recycled glass look. It’s perfect for anywhere breakage is a concern, especially outdoor dining and poolside venues. Are you kidding me, this isn’t breakable? That is not breakable. What is this stuff made out of? So interestingly enough, most of our competitors make their drinkware out of PC, polycarbonate SAN, but this is made of triton. The great beauty of triton is you can’t crack it, it’s never going to get craze lines from the dishwasher, and it is absolutely impossible to break. Really? Really. Let me ask you something, Matt, when we talked about the trends here, are you familiar with Mad Men? Yeah. West Elm? Yeah. Okay, so Mad Men seven years ago started researching, what does that have to do with drinkware? Well, it has a lot to do with drinkware, yeah, so Mad Men started researching some mid-century modern, and if you go into a fine department store in New York City and you go into the drinkware department, they’re going to have a lot of product that looks like this. Very cool colors, casing, things that really bring you back to that mid-century design and makes your house look like Don Draper’s house. People want that look; the Mad Men look is hot. I guess it does kind of make sense then, right? But I have to ask you, I mean, how long until this color disappears, right? Well that’s another really cool thing to talk about. This triton drinkware is actually two glasses in one, the triton plastic is dropped into a mold, a glass is formed, it comes up, and then it spins on a conveyor belt and is spray painted gray. It is then instantly dropped into another triton bath where a glass is molded over it. This color is never coming off; it is encased inside 2 layers of triton. It will be there for the long haul. No kidding? Alright, so, the color’s not coming off but how’s this going to last like, honestly in my kitchen, like, running through the dish machine, I’ve got my chemicals, you mentioned a pool, you got that sunscreen, that’s always a mess, and then, my favorite right, lipstick. You will get less staining overtime with triton, but I would tell any restaurant owner or restaurant manager or chef that all you need to do is wash that lipstick with soap and water and it will never build up that residue that gives you that cloudy halo over time. The other nice thing about triton is it’s never going to get crizzle marks, it’s never going to crack, it’s not going to start to splinter around the top, we’ve tested this for over a year of dishwashing and it will look this good in one year as it does today. Wow, you’re kidding! It’s crazy. That is really amazing. So, you were mentioning some of the recycled glass, and I’m looking at this, this isn’t glass? That is not glass. It looks just like glass! I thought this was glass. Nope, this is a double walled triton, I wanted to capture that look of Mexican recycled glass, this works perfectly with the Mingle dinnerware and the Gathering dinnerware, again that recycled look, farm to table, sustainability, all the trends that are hot right now, so we’ve taken a drinkware line, it works great with our new dinnerware that also matches today’s trends. And I see not only glassware, we got some actual bowls? Yeah, so one thing that every bar owner knows, if you feed people salty snacks when they’re at the bar, they’ll drink more. But currently we didn’t have a bar bowl in our line so I did a simple 5” bar bowl to put up on the bar, and then out for the pool, this could be a salad ordered from room service in a big bowl and then served up in smaller bowls. I keep hearing pool, right, I mean we really seem to be going back to the outdoor pool market with all this, absolutely, and we’re perfectly positioned with drinkware that doesn’t break, doesn’t crack, and will really resist the stains that make it so difficult to use plastic by the pool. Fantastic, so, what do we got here, we got glassware that’s unbreakable, durable, and good looking, is this really Carlisle? This is the new Carlisle. Are you kidding? I mean, awesome, awesome new products, thank you so much.
