In the history of Scottish whisky, there has never been a single definitive glass that the whisky world could call its own. Now, following in the tradition of Scottish innovation, the Glencairn Glass has arrived, combining the knowledge and expertise of some of the whisky world’s leading innovators (and drinkers…)
The Glencairn Glass’s roots lie in the traditional nosing and tasting glasses used by master whisky blenders and whisky lovers all over the globe. The unique shape has been crafted with eminent care to enhance the enjoyment of single malt whisky and aged blended whisky. The tapered mouth allows an ease of drinking not associated with traditional nosing glasses, while capturing that all-important bouquet. The wide bowl allows the fullest appreciation of the whisky’s colour and the solid base is designed to be easy on the hand.
The time and effort put into all this development was rewarded in 2006 when the Glencairn Glass won The Queens Award for Innovation and in now used by the majority of whisky company’s throughout the world.
