Made from 100% recycled glass, these salt or chamoy rimmers were designed exclusively for MyCajita and continue the beautiful double highball glassware that was featured in last years “Salud” tequila box. The aqua blue and lime green band around the rimmer are a playful contrast to the rich red and orange hues of your chili salt or chamoy. It’s all mouth blown and handcrafted in Tlaquepaque, Jalisco.

How it's Made
Master glassblowers head up teams of 6-10 workers, each with their own role in the process. You can see the apprentices doing the basics, tending the fires, and delivering the necessary materials to each artisan. The rimmer starts off as molten glass that’s then rolled out like a cigar, the blue/green band is added, and the craftsman begins to blow and roll it to shape. From there, it is heated until it is tempered and illuminates a red hue before being placed in its mold and blown to the correct size and shape. Afterward, the aqua blue rim gets added before the master craftsman reviews each piece to check for quality and consistent size and shape.
