The Glencairn Whisky Glass is considered to be the gold standard for whisky aficionados. The glass went into production in 2001 and was awarded The Queen’s Award for Innovation in 2008. Since purchasing a set of these, it is easy to see why they are the standard. Just as wine glasses are specific to the nose of a given varietal, the Glencairn is perfect for enjoying all types of whisky. The glasses concentrate the aromas and the wide elevated base allows you to see the beautiful color of the whisky. Adding these to your home bar is one of the simplest ways to class up your dram.
