You'd think we might be high functioning alcoholics, or big liquor fans by the number of liquor glasses we make as swag. We just like useful swag, and since many of our friends and customers are whisky and bourbon connoisseurs, we like to make things for them. Just don't ask us the difference between whisky and bourbon, it was explained to us once and it's fascinating even for non-drinkers. As for the Glencairn Glass, we had to look up what made these glasses different. If you're also wondering, below is for you. That a glass can make this difference is something of a wonder our logical mind can't put a finger on, but we don't understand whisky and bourbon either, so we'' just trust there's science behind it, and have faith that they know what they're doing.
The Glencairn Whisky Glass
Glencairn Whisky Glass is a revolutionary whisky glass that really lets
one savor the taste and complexity of fine whisky. These are great to
use for any of your Single Malt Whisky's, Irish Whiskey's, and also your
single barrel bourbons. With the tapered mouth, you are able to really
smell all of the nuances the whisky has to offer. Any malt advocate will
love this glass!
History Of The Glass:
Brandy, Wine... each has its own glass. Yet whisky, the worlds most
complex spirit can be found served in anything from hiball tumblers to
In 2001 Glencairn Crystal solved the problem of
identifying the ideal glass for whisky. Designed by Raymond Davidson
nearly 25 years earlier, its development involved pulling together the
master blenders from the five largest whisky companies and asking them
to perfect his initial design.
Today the Glencairn Glass can be found at every distillery in Scotland, Ireland, Wales as well as most in the USA.
The 6.5oz Glencairn Glass has a tastefully small Cygnus logo engraved, it's small enough, one has to look to find it. We put flowers from our garden or 5.56mm rounds in ours :)
