Scotch, Irish, Japanese, Rye, Bourbon… and many more! We’re spoilt for choice when it comes to one of the planet’s favourite spirits.
We’re also spoilt for choice when it comes to glassware. Whether you’re looking for something plain and simple to use as a giveaway, or a glass to give a fully immersive drinking experience for a new product launch, Beaumont PPS has got your back.
Here is a rundown of some of our favourites…
The Glencairn Glass
Known for being the industry standard, the tulip shaped Glencairn is the ‘go-to’ whisky glass of many. The lightweight, mouth-blown crystal glass has a wide bowl allowing for optimum swirling, which steers aromas up the narrow neck towards the nose.
The generous capacity of the glass allows for a 35ml pour with space to add some drops of water to open up the aromas of your favourite dram. The thick base of the Glencairn gives it a nice weight, however, it does mean that they don’t stack and can take up a quite a bit of space. We recommend keeping hold of their boxes for easy storage.
“I’ll take a whisky on the rocks.” Sounds cool, doesn’t it? Rocks glasses generally have a heavy base, making them nice and weighty to hold.
A rocks glass is a great tumbler for building, mixing and muddling cocktails. Its wide brim makes it accessible and easy to add ice to your drinks. The straight sides of the glass send the alcohol vapours directly upwards towards the nose which, when drinking your spirits neat, can burn the nostrils a little.
Rocks glasses are simple, sturdy, and easy to store. It’s our vessel of choice for sipping an Old Fashioned cocktail built over a nice large ice cube. When it comes to savouring a spirit in its natural form, we prefer something a little more curvy. Our favourite being…
The NEAT Glass
A relative newcomer on the whisky glass scene.
The large, curved sides of the NEAT Glass ‘bowl’ allows room for swirling giving your spirit space to breathe, opening and preserving the aromas.
The secret is all in the swirl. The neck of the glass separates the powerful alcohol smell from the character aromas. The ethanol escapes over the rim of the glass, leaving behind the key scents in the bowl for you to savour. The NEAT Glass is optimised with your nose in mind; take the glass to your nose and enjoy the aromatic experience without the alcohol burn.
The NEAT Glass is a firm favourite here at Beaumont PPS HQ. It heightens your drinking experience, it looks great on a whisky shelf with its stylish aesthetic, and it stacks for easy storage. It’s an ideal glass for taking your consumers on a fully immersive drinking experience.
