Glassware Changes Everything! 🤯
When we talk about spirits, wine or beer, we often get hung up on the bottle itself. What am I drinking? How much does it cost? Where does it comes from? How old is it? Though what's in the glass is very important, did you know that the glass itself can great influence your tasting experience?
We've known for a long time now that winemakers have determined that certain shapes of glass enhance the varietal of wine. This is why we have a Bordeaux, Burgundy and Chardonnay style glass. The shape of these glasses directly related to the body, aroma and character of the wine and work to successfully deliver the best aromas and taste.
In the beer world, this practice is also commonplace. Whether it's a Pilsner glass, Pint glass or even a Goblet style, the height and shape of the vessel will certainly influence how the beer is consumed.
In the world of spirits, the clear choice for tasting a spirit neat is the Glencairn. It's tulip shape allows aromas to be focused towards your nose. The short stem means your hand won't warm and change your spirit and the wider, mid-section allows the spirit to open up and move around with a little tilt of the wrist. Whether you're having Whisk(e)y, Tequila, Rum, or any other spirit that you want to analyze while tasting "neat", the Glencairn glass is the preferred choice!
Each TASTR Box comes with the perfect tasting glass. Our spirit boxes include an authentic Glencairn glass. Our Beer Boxes have a unique Craft Master style glass and our Wine Boxes come with a miniature Burgundy glass that is perfect for nosing and sampling.
