Cristal Benito is a crystal cutting workshop founded in 1952. They invented the 32-facet star, produced in a great many different sizes, shapes and colors.
To produce these stunning creations, they would develop not only the disks for cutting the crystal but also the technique for sculpting the crystal, shaping the crystal as deeply as possible, to the limit of its resistance so as to maximize its sparkle, its brilliance and the infinite reflections in the creations they designed.
The Napoleon III style liqueurs bar is known worldwide.
