Glencairn Whiskey/Scotch Tasting Glass
With its gently curved bowl that fits comfortably in the hand, tapered sides rising to a smaller nose-sized aperture and a heavy base that make it difficult to knock over, the Glencairn has the perfect combination of aesthetically pleasing looks and serious nosing functionality, while also carrying sufficient heft from its crystal glass to feel good in the hand at events.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. 200mL capacity. Made in Germany.
