Denver & Liely
Vast R&D has given way to this minimalist glass by Denver & Liely. Its super wide base is designed to maximise the surface area from which the peaty, full-bodied nose can be funnelled into one succinct bouquet. What’s most lovable about the streamlined vessel, however, is that it allows for the true exploration of your chosen tipple’s full character. (www.denverandliely.com)
The Cube Glass
The drawcard of the cube glass is that if you keep it in your freezer, it can drop the temp on that scotch without watering it down. Designed by Nate Cotterman, the glass comes with a solid glass cube fused inside. And even if you aren’t keeping it in your freezer, it will be your prized tumbler for its slick design alone.
