Initial production at Holmegaard glassworks began in 1825. Early on, the factory produced only green bottles, but its founder Countess Henriette Danneskiold-Samsøe also wanted to produce clear glass tumblers, and the Bohemian glassblowers were able to manufacture these. A lot has happened since production at Holmegaard glassworks first began. Holmegaard has always managed to stay at the cutting edge, while also appealing to contemporary trends – down through the generations. Today, Holmegaard is both classic and modern – and most recently, we have become the recipients of the coveted Re-brand prize, for revitalising Holmegaard’s graphic identity. A lot has happened over the years, but we still share Henriette’s focus: to create glass with heart and soul, and integrity.
