13 Must-See Glencairn Whiskey Glasses

Find Out Why You Need a Glencairn Whiskey Glass to Make the Most Out of Your Whiskey!

Did you know that the Glencairn whiskey glass was created by a man named Raymond Davidson who dreamed of the perfect whisky glass? His unique design didn’t make it into production until his sons teamed up with the best in the whiskey industry 25 years later in 2001 to promote it with Glencairn Crystal at the helm. Since then, the Glencairn glass has been known by connoisseurs all over the world as the best whiskey glass on the market. The tapered lip and curvy body reveal the hidden aromas and secret ingredients within your scotch or bourbon, creating the best drinking experience every time. This unique shape distinguishes the glass even at a quick glance from a standard tasting whiskey glass. Whether you’re looking for original Glencairn glasses, personalized ones, or even the Canadian stemless glasses, we found the best of all of them.

At first glance, the Glencairn whisky glass doesn’t look like much. It’s oddly shaped and quite small, but you notice that it does fit well in the hand.

With these glasses, you and three of your friends will be amazed at how much better your whiskey tastes. This is achieved through the special design: the wide, tapered bowl allows you to admire the amber color as well as enhances the aromas. The narrowed lip makes it easier for you to take smaller sips while collecting the exotic scents and directing it straight to your nose as you do.
