It's day 3 of the Ten Days of Bourbon Christmas and so far you've got some history to read up on and a nice and affordable bourbon to give to your best bourbon buddies. But you know that presentation is everything. When it comes to sipping a nice bourbon whiskey, you've gotta have the right hardware.
The Glencairn Glass
Today's gift idea is The Glencairn Glass. This is a glass that's perfect for sipping a high quality spirit. The Glencairn won the Queen's Award for Innovation in 2006 and has been recognized as the "official whisk(e)y glass" by the experts. It's got a custom shape, starting as a bowl at the bottom of the glass and then tapering towards the top of the glass which enhances the color, body, nose, taste, and finish of the bourbon. I really like the weighted base of the Glencairn. It's got a good hand to it for a narrow glass.
