Sparkling since 1834

Since Michael Nachtmann founded our company in 1834, we have steadily built our reputation as a specialist in crystal glassware. In 2004 we became the lifestyle brand of RIEDEL Glassworks, a family owned business with a proud 265 - year heritage.

In 2019 Nachtmann celebrated its 185th birthday. At NACHTMANN, our past shapes our present and our present shapes our future. From previous generations to the next generation, we respect craftsmanship and we relish creativity. From classics to cutting-edge, from special days to the everyday, we provide more than 185 years of crystal glassware fit for the occasion.


The best of Made in Germany

Respecting our past, we actively shape our future. With an artisan heritage stretching back 185 years, we are pioneering environmental technology at among one of Europe’s most modern plants. Here, in the best German tradition, we combine craftsmanship with rigid quality control, new technology and a passion for perfection.

Reflecting our long established commitment to sustainability and environmentally friendly operations, we renewed our DIN ISO 14001 certification in 2010. This acknowledges our introduction of leading environmental management practices since 2001.


Brand Promise

The stylized N in the NACHTMANN logo stands for the initial in the name of the founder, Joh. Michael Nachtmann. He produced glasses with skilled craftsmanship and a passion for detail - a legacy that lives on in the NACHTMANN brand to this day.

At the same time, the foot of the N opens into a glassmaker’s pipe, a traditional tool that was even used over 2000 years ago in ancient Rome. The glassmaker’s pipe symbolizes the strong connection to the traditional art of glassmaking and to tradition. The N bears a brilliant crown, which is an expression of excellence and perfect workmanship in the manufacture of crystal glass.

The SCULPTURE series plays with contrasts, with the rough and the gentle. The crystal glasses embody the creation process of a sculpture. During the process of creation by the sculptor, very different surfaces emerge, which meanwhile give the object an appearance characterized by contrasts. This moment, the “unfinished” stage, was captured by the designer Ahmet Uslu and implemented in crystal glass.

The cut makes all the difference

Elegant, heavy crystal glasses are all part of the “furniture” of good bars - and can be found in many a discerning home bar, too. But such finds are becoming few and far between at city flea markets and antique stores. Vintage crystal glasses are increasingly rare, and many newer products lack that special sparkle.

Many connoisseurs yearn for a glass that makes their bourbon gleam and glow like a scene from a classic 1960s film set. And once they have experienced holding a glass of such quality in their hand, nothing less will do.

Their designs adroitly champion the fine balance between nostalgia, iconic status, and glamor. NACHTMANN’s extensive range of tumblers brings fresh impetus to the world of fine crystalware. The touch of luxury surrounding these elegant glasses inspires new appreciation and respect––even in the setting of a home bar. Immerse yourself in this glamor in your own home.
