Molecular Booze-ology

ADH1A is the very sober name for the human gene that allows your body to metabolize alcohol. And in this case, it helps you to hold your liquor in more than one way! These handsome rocks glasses are hand-etched with the pattern of molecules that makes up this toast-worthy gene. They're the brilliant creation of Brian Johnson, a designer and engineer who bridges the worlds of creativity and precision craftsmanship. A great gift for doctors, scientists, graduate students, those with a martini-dry sense of humor, or anyone containing a human genome. Made in the USA.
