Usually when there is something glued on, you need to clean the glass one way, and clean the 'glued-on' item in a different way. Since yours is leather, use whatever you would use to clean leather.
If the leather does not want to come off, then it is most likely glued on. Most cheap glues will release if you heat them. Probably the easiest way to heat this would be to fill the glass with really hot water, and let it sit. You might need to apply heat more than once.
Why would someone glue something like leather to a shotglass? If there is a design on the leather, then this is a way for a person with leather-working skills to showcase their work, and maybe sell more 'stuff.' Even if there is no design, it still might be a way to showcase their leather-work. Or maybe someone does not like their glasses clinking together...
: What's the best way to clean a shot glass with a leather cover that can't be removed (no snap closure, glass will not budge)? By the way, why do shot glasses have these covers anyway? Origin?
