When autumn starts to roll around, most of us start to think about winter and the gifts we’re hoping for under the tree. Whether it’s a special book, electronics or plenty of gift cards, there are so many things to choose from that it can be overwhelming!
But, if you have a friend, relative or significant other who has a passion for liquor, there are plenty of great ways you can swing their interest! Whiskey may be an acquired taste, but there are a variety of luxury gifts out there that will be sure to inspire their love.
It can be easy to buy a bottle of the finest stuff you can find. Fortunately, there are plenty of other gifts for whiskey lovers that will be sure to make an impression. Whether it’s a stylish, one-of-a-kind decanter or a glass that will lead to less drink dilution, there is no shortage of options this holiday season!
Etched Globe Whisky Decanter & Glasses
If you’ve been a fan of the strong stuff for a while, there’s a pretty good chance that you’ve got a lot of glassware.
You may even have a collection of decanters that you can’t see the end of and can be used to keep your limited editions whiskey.
Fortunately, there’s always something new on the market and the Etched globe whisky decanter is no exception! Not only will this decanter make a statement sitting on your bar cart, but it’s also a fun thing to show off to all of your friends.
Fortunately, much like the real globe, you have the ability to spin this globe-etched decanter on its axis! In addition to the decanter, you also get two etched glasses, a wood stand, and a glass and cork stopper. You can keep whiskies like compass box as an option that are blended from some of the best sources across world.
Eisch Circo Decanter
The average bar cart may be bedecked with bottles, but there might not be a lot of visual interest outside of liquor. Fortunately, the Eisch Circo Decanter changes all of that! This sophisticated design in a unique shape is made in Europe and is mouth-blown from lead-free crystal.
As a result, you won’t find a local decanter that you’ll enjoy pouring from as much! This unique piece has a height of 11 ¾ inches and will hold 35 ounces of the substance of your choice. Fortunately, with such a striking appearance and an easy pouring style, this is an exceptional piece of glassware to add to your current collection.
Corkcicle Whiskey Wedge
Without a doubt, the average connoisseur has dealt with the perils of having their drink diluted. Sometimes it may seem easier to forget about ice altogether than to be stuck sipping a watered-down drink.
Luckily, the Corkcicle Whisky Wedge solves this problem! Because ice will actually freeze to the glass, it melts much more slowly than the average ice cube. Whether it’s whiskey or bourbon you’re reaching for, all you have to do is place the silicone form inside the glass, fill it with water and freeze it for 4 hours.
When you’re ready to have a slow-melting sip, remove the form from the glass and add your favourite brand of whiskey. While this will certainly add a lot to your drinking experience, it provides for a pretty neat looking drink too!
Nachtmann Punk Tumblers
Whether it comes etched, plain or with an interesting pattern, you know when you’re looking at a whiskey glass. But, with the luxury Nachtmann Punk Tumblers, you’re well on your way to a unique look for your glassware shelf and your drink!
Mouth-blown from lead crystal, these funky glasses were developed with the art and design college Central Saint Martin in London. The choice is up to you as they are available in black and orange for your punky-drinking pleasure. They’re also dishwasher safe, so even though they look the part they’re still low maintenance!
Nambe Tilt Whisky Decanter
If you’re looking for something that’s a little arty in your whiskey drinking experience, look no further than this decanter!
The Nambe Tilt Whisky Decanter has an art-house style inspired by the Bauhaus that will be sure to make it a point of conversation. Moving up into a curve like it’s being blown sideways, this decanter is made of 24 percent lead crystal and is solid and stable for your drinking pleasure.
Fortunately, while this stunningly sideways decanter may be enough of a showpiece on its own, it comes with accessories. When you purchase, you’ll also get two whiskey tumblers at 3 ¾ inches along with a glass stopper.
Whiskey Glass with Soapstone Chilling Ball
Much like the Corkcicle Whiskey Wedge, this chilling ball will do the trick in keeping your drink cool and undiluted. Yet, it also has a unique look that will have your friends gathered around the bar asking questions.
Instead of ice, this soapstone sphere will cover a significant surface area of your drink for the sake of chilling it. The glass also contains a groove in the bottom so it can roll around in style for added benefit.
While one will do if you like to sip your whiskey alone, you may want to order another one for your friends who will be interested soon!
Almost every whiskey lover has been gifted with a new glass at some point. Fortunately, there are gifts for whiskey lovers out there that will be sure to throw them a curve-ball! Whether you splurge on a soapstone chilling ball or a globe-etched decanter, the whiskey lover in your life will be in for a pleasant surprise.
