Glencairn Glass

 The Official Whisky Glass


The easiest way to heighten those wonderful nuances of a complex single malt is to drink it from the proper glassware.  The Glencairn glass was specifically designed for this purpose and is patterned after the tapered tasting glasses used by master whisky distillers and blenders worldwide.  Its three distinct features are its tapered top, wide bowl and diminutive size.  Standing only 4.5 inches tall, its tapered mouth allows for an ease of drinking while it funnels the aroma for maximum pleasure of the bouquet.  The wide bowl encourages the fullest appreciation of a spirit's color and its solid base fits comfortably in your hand.


Designer Raymond Davidson and his sons sought out expert advice from Scottish whisky producers and master blenders.  Their efforts resulted in this elegant and well designed lead free crystal which is now recognized as the official glass of the whisky industry.  In 2006, this glass won the prestigious United Kingdom's Queen's Award for Innovation.  It is manufactured only by Glencairn Crystal Company of East Kilbride, Scotland. 


Experience the difference for yourself.
