There’s no one way to sip whisky, as long as you’re enjoying it. But if you want to get the most out of your dram then an authentic Glencairn whisky nosing glass is probably the best glass in the world.
The Glencairn style of glass has become synonymous with whisky for good reason. It was developed for the sole purpose of savouring whisky and has become the glass of choice for professionals, connoisseurs, and anyone who’s serious about the spirit.
The shape of the glass was inspired by a traditional sherry nosing glass known as a Copita that narrows at the top to capture the aromas.
First you should fill the wide rounded bowl with your Laphroaig of choice then swirl it around to release a heady bouquet of notes. These superb smells are captured by the tapered opening of the glass so you can truly appreciate the ‘nose’ and palate of the whisky by taking a few deep sniffs before you sip. Just like the pros.
In addition to the classic whisky-drinking design this Glencairn glass features a fine landscape portrait of our beloved distillery, headed proudly by the name of our world-famous whisky. It’s the perfect glass to take your enjoyment of whisky up a notch, and it makes a fantastic gift for the discerning Laphroaig-lover.
So why not give it a go if you’re ready to get more from your whisky? It’s not the only way to enjoy a dram, but in our humble opinion it’s the best. And we hope you’ll agree.
