Here's an article that might help you out. It's a pretty quick read and has a fair amount of useful stuff.

It looks like they light only the background avoiding the glass. Tha glass "appears lighting" because it is transparent. I don't see any reflection on the glass and look how the edge of the glass is dark... I don't think they use direct light on the glass but perhaps using bouncing lateral light avoid reflective light... BTW Rémy Martin great Cognac ;)

the trick to lighting glass, like all reflective surfaces is to light what they reflect, not the glass themselves. trying bringing some white cards in to bounce light off of. that will give you nicer highlights on the edges.

The most important thing about glassware is this: You are not lighting the glass. You are refracting black and white materials through the glass.;)

That is a really helpful link...

The way it tells to light a glass looks pretty simple yet awsome.
