STORY OF THE GLASS
The Glencairn Glass is the world’s favourite whisky glass. Selling over five million glasses a year, used by hundreds of distilleries and millions of people around the world, the glass is a Queen’s Award winner for Innovation.
The success of the Glencairn Glass has spawned a world class range of complimentary glasses – the Glencairn Mixer, the Glencairn Copita and the Glencairn Gin Goblet – unique and highly successful range of glassware.
Before the Glencairn Glass, the whisky world didn’t have a glass to call its own. Designed, developed and created by us, the award-winning Glencairn Glass is used by master blenders and whisky connoisseurs all over the world and has made its mark as the official glass for whisky. The glass is crystal clear to show off the colour of your whisky and the shape of the glass is designed to enhance the overall experience from start to finish as you nose and taste your whisky.

Adding a Tasting Cap will help contain the vapors from your whisky to give greater concentrations of aromas whilst nosing and then why not complete your whisky drinking experience with our Glencairn Pipette, perfect for adding a controlled splash of water to your dram. The Glencairn Glass is also available in beautiful gift sets, perfect for any occasion.
If whisky isn’t to your taste, we offer other glassware such as the Glencairn Gin Goblet and the Glencairn Mixer which have been designed to enhance your spirit drinking.
