"It's roots lie in the traditional nosing glasses used by blenders around the world. The unique and stylish shape has been crafted with eminent care, to enhance the enjoyment of whisky. The tapering mouth allows an ease of drinking not associated with traditional nosing glasses whilst capturing the aromas of the nose. The wide bowl allows for the fullest appreciation of the whisky's color and the solid base is designed to be easy on the hand.
"Today the Glencairn Glass can be found at every distillery in Scotland, Ireland, Wales as well as most in the USA. It has won accolades from around the world including the Queens Award, the highest award for business in the UK." - Glencairn
