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 pout into all this development was rewarded in 2006 when the Glencairn Glass won The Queen's Award for Innovation.
