Personalised Crystal Whisky Glasses
We all know what a whisky glass is – but do you know why? At Heritage Glasses we’re all about the history of great spirits, and the accessories that make drinking them such a pleasure. So the whisky glass is often called a tumbler – it has a wide rim and a substantial base and it’s perfectly designed to drink whisky neat, but also has the ultimate robust shape and size for a number of classic cocktails, including the drink that divides the whisky community – scotch on the rocks!
Choosing the ideal whisky glass
Back to our whisky glasses. It’s not just the shape that makes a whisky glass so classic. Most traditional whisky glasses are also crystal. And there’s a number of reasons that crystal glassware enhances your enjoyment of a tipple:
- crystal glassware contains tiny quantities of lead, which makes it softer, allowing for skilled shaping and cutting of the glass
- crystal whisky glasses are clearer, which means they refract light better, giving a better view of your favourite amber nectar
- crystal glasses are nearly always at least partially hand-crafted.
All these factors make our Heritage Glasses not just a delight to drink from and an enhancer of your chosen whisky, but a treasure that can be passed from family member to family member or given to commemorate the most significant events of life in a glorious fashion.
Our whisky glasses respect the nature of whisky, offer the perfect vessel to consume this most revered of drinks and, best of all, can be engraved to your preference, allowing you to recognise special events, wonderful people and significant moments with a carefully chosen engraving.
Superb for every whisky and bourbon, comfortable in the hand, designed to enhance each mouthful of your chosen drink, we commend our whisky glass
