Glass, The Official Whisky
Product Details

Official whisky glass. Nosing & tasting crystal glass. In the long and illustrious history of 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. The Glencairn Glass's roots lie in the traditional nosing and tasting glasses used by master blenders and connoisseurs around the world. The unique and stylish shape has been crafted with eminent care to enhance the enjoyment of single malts and aged blends. The tapering 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 Queen's Award for Innovation. The 5 steps to appreciating scotch whisky: Colour: Is your whisky light gold, bright copper or rich amber in colour? Body: Does your whisky have a light, medium or full body? Nose: Which aromas do you recognise when you nose your whisky - is it malty, smokey, fruity or chocolatey? Palate: What characteristics do you notice on the palate - is it softly sweet, rich and fruity or peppery and spicy? Finish: Does the flavour remain for a long time or does it disappear quickly? Courtesy of The Scotch Whisky Heritage Centre. Like a good whisky, this glass has plenty of character. (Richard Paterson, Master Blender, Whyte & Mackay). A new scotch whisky glass with a design which reflects the quality of scotch and raises its profile. (Campbell Evans, Scotch Whisky Association). I hope restaurants and pubs adopt it, and that it becomes a badge of connoisseurship for fine whiskies in general. (Michael Jackson, Author & Consultant Editor, Whisky Magazine). www.whiskyglass.com.
