Glencairn’s Glass Pipette Lets You Sip Your Whisky The Way It Ought To Be

Glencairn Crystal rocked the whisky world back in the early oughts when it finally put Raymond Davidson’s nosing glass design into production. A long-held secret for some 20-odd years, it proved a game-changer for its superior tasting properties, earning it the title of “official whisky glass” in no time at all.

However, like any self-respecting whisky purist, the Glencairn team takes their drams with a dash of water. Widely believed to improve both the aroma and the flavor of the spirit, it’s really the only way to raise a glass if you’re looking to bring out the fullest tasting experience. As such, the Scottish-based crystal company has just announced a handblown glass pipette sized specifically for the Glencairn glass. Weighted at the top with a miniaturized version of its cup counterpart, the piece holds precisely 1mL of water in its bulb — the perfect amount to properly enjoy whisky. You can buy it now on its own or as part of a set, starting at £6 (~$9) and £11 (~$16), respectively.

Purchase: $9+
