More information The Glencairn Glass Whisky
The perfect glass for the whiskey drinker.
Raymond Davidson, the founder of Glencairn Crystal, took it upon himself to address this issue and began designing a glass specifically for the whisky drinker. He envisaged a glass similar to a traditional sherry nosing glass (or Copita) that would encourage the user to appreciate the ‘nose’ and palate of the whisky, whilst being functional and robust enough for a bar environment.
Eventually the glass was brought to the attention of the Master Blenders of the Scotch Whisky Industry. With their guidance and expertise, the glass evolved. It’s size and shape was perfected to accommodate a 35ml pour whilst allowing for the addition of water; keeping an optimum amount of liquid in contact with air to allow the aromas to develop.
Colour: The wide crystal bowl allows for the fullest appreciation of the whisky’s colour
Nose: The tapering mouth of the glass captures and focuses the aroma on the nose
Body: It’s unique patented shape is the perfect form to admire the body of the whisky
Palate: Designed to fit in the hand comfortably & allow your whisky to develop in the glass over time
