What is a Whiskey Decanter, and What is it Used for?
Scotch decanters have been used for as long as alcohol has been around. Originally limited to the most wealthy individuals, a whiskey decanter was used to preserve the liquor. Not only more beautiful, they also solved the problem of the cork drying out or going bad, tainting the flavor. The decanters of the time, and ever since, have used a glass stopper instead of the cork stopper.
Fast forward to prohibition, and decanters took on a new roll, as a way to hide your illegal whiskey or scotch in plain sight. They accomplished this by using a decorative glass decanter bottle to disguise the liquor. After the end of prohibition in the 50's and 60's, the liquor distributors didn't care much about what their bottles looked like, they just wanted to get it on the shelves to meet the huge demand.
