With our selection of liquor and liqueur glasses for every occasion, our whiskey glasses give you the perfect option for enhancing the flavors perfectly instead of using the standard rocks glass or a brandy snifter.
Originally created by the Glencairn Scotch Company, whiskey glasses were designed to function similar to a traditional sherry copita, enhancing the aroma of the scotch but providing a deep bowl that still allows the liquid to come into precise contact with oxygen. They typically hold 35 ml of liquid and unlike a sherry copita, the tapered mouth of these glasses allows the users to easily drink their whiskey.
These whiskey glasses are typically constructed out of crystal or clear glass so the drinker can appreciate the color of various labels of scotch and whiskey, while the typical drinker who is not a connoisseur in whiskey can still taste the various flavors and aromas.
These liquor and liqueur glasses are relatively new to the whiskey scene, despite their popularity, originally being created in 2001. They are designed to fit comfortably in a drinkers hand, which allows the flavors and aroma of the whiskey to develop in the glass while it is being sipped. The glasses are designed so that whiskey can be enjoyed with or without water.
Much like cleaning your liquor and liqueur glasses that are used with whiskey, it is important to wash whiskey glasses by hand and avoid using detergents because they can linger in the glass and distort the flavor of the whiskey.
