There is still no positive news on what will be happening to future production and sourcing of Waterford Crystal, Edinburgh Crystal and Stuart Crystal. As previously stated KPS a US Private equity company bought the brands but not the factory in March 2009.
To date we have been receiving stock from the factory warehouses but certain lines are now getting very low. We are in regular contact with our Waterford Crystal representative and she herself still has no further information.
The stock that a number of our customers are still waiting for news on is Edinburgh Crystal Skye Wine Glasses, Goblets and Flute Champagne glasses, Edinburgh Crystal Tay Liqueur glasses and Small Whisky tumblers, Stuart Crystal Iona Wine glasses, Goblets and Flute Champagne glasses. We are optimistic that the Edinburgh product which is out sourced from European crystal factories will become available in the next few months, the Stuart Iona is an Airtwist Stem glass and a more difficult manufacturing process, that to date has been done at the Kilbarry factory in Waterford.
We will continue to pursue Waterford for further updates and will post news as and when we receive it.
For those customers that have committed to waiting we once again thank you for your patience
