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.

Glad it's made in USA! They were smaller than I thought, and seem more like a decorative piece than a regular use item. Being a biology major I just had to have them though!

Great Glasses

I absolutely love these glasses, but unfortunately when I placed my whiskey ball into one of the glasses for the first time it immediately shattered the glass. I will be ordering another glass though (and being more careful with adding ice) because I love these glasses so much!
