The 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!
Champagne, Brandy, Wine… each has its own glass. Yet whisky, the worlds most complex spirit can be found served in anything from high ball tumblers to Paris goblets.
It’s a bit like pouring your vintage champagne into a pint tumbler or your XO brandy into a shot glass!
Whisky is a drink to be savoured. Time spent enjoying the flavours on the nose are equally important as those on the palate. Raymond Davidson decided it was about time someone designed a proper whisky glass…
The perfect glass for whisky was created and left to mature for some twenty years at the bottom of a filing cabinet.
After adequate maturation, his sons Paul and Scott decided to take his design to the people who know best… the master blenders!
With their help and support they were able to take the glass around the world and promote it as the Glass for whisky, developed by the whisky industry for the whisky industry.
Its roots lie in the traditional nosing glasses used by blenders around the world.
The unique and stylish shape has been crafted with eminent care, to enhance the enjoyment of whisky.
The tapering mouth allows an ease of drinking not associated with traditional nosing glasses whilst capturing the aromas on the nose.
The wide bowl allows for the fullest appreciation of the whisky’s colour and the solid base is designed to be easy on the hand. They are also made from a crystal making them more durable than glass.
Today the Glencairn Glass can be found at every distillery in Scotland, Ireland, Wales as well as most in the USA. It has won accolades from around the world including the Queens Award, the highest award for business in the UK.
Importantly it is also beginning to appear in the places it was designed for… the bars!
It may have taken a few hundred years to arrive, but whisky now has a glass of it’s own… FINALLY!
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.
