This glass is going to change the way that you experience your favorite spirit. It has for me!
Our introduction to the Denver & Liely Whisky glass was accidental, although some might consider it fate. Liely Faulkner was vacationing here in Santa Barbara with his family and while on the way to the post office spotted our store and stopped in to introduce himself. After chatting for a moment he showed us his new whisky glass that he and a friend had developed. It was love at first sight for me.
For years I have been telling people that in order to get the full flavor and aroma out of whisk(e)y (or any spirit really) you should NOT use a tumbler, rocks or double old fashioned glass. The big mouth of that style glass lets the beautiful aromas escape and go right past your nose. The Glencairn glass (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glencairn_whisky_glass) has been the standard for tasting and assessing spirits for years since it has the tapered body that funnels the aromas to your nose but is pretty uncomfortable to use for casual drinking. That's where the Denver & Liely glass fits in!
The Denver & Liely is a beauty! It's design is modern and it's shape is sexy. When you hold the handmade, mouthblown glass in your hand it just feels right. The glass’s wide base maximizes the surface area while the tapered body funnels aromas to your nose. This reveals the spirit's full character. The glass is big enough to enjoy your spirit on the rocks or neat.
This is my new favorite whisk(e)y glass, for sure! Hell, I'm going to put Tequila, Rum and anything else I can think of in it too.
