I’ve been drinking out of Glencairn glass since my first whisky festival. It changed the way I understood whisky. When we had Raymond Davidson on the podcast, I learned that it was Raymond’s love for tasting terrific whisky that drove this innovation.
Raymond was tired of drinking whisky neat out rocks glass, so he designed the Glencairn glass specifically for whisky shows—Compact. Heavy duty. Nearly unbreakable. Now, of course, most whisky drinking households are stocked with Glencairn glass. For 2020, they’re celebrating their 20th year in making The Glencairn Glass. Here’s how you can celebrate with them (from their press release):
The new Glencairn PodGlass series: a first for the brand – a series of insightful and informative podcasts with Glencairn Crystal Founder, Raymond Davidson, and guest appearances by some of the whisky industry’s most renowned and respected names – some of whom were involved in the early development of The Glencairn Glass. Visit PodGlass to listen in!
New versions of the Glencairn Glass that will be added to the existing range.
A unique fundraising initiative with the proceeds going to the company’s chosen charity partners.
The official opening of the new expanded Glencairn Crystal Studio site in East Kilbride: which incorporates a stunning refurbishment and a substantial new build on the original Glencairn site to cater for expanding demand – all built by local businesses.
Social media: to keep whisky lovers going through the current challenging COVID-19 climate, @TheGlencairnGlass is inviting the online community to follow them and share their favourite stay at home Glencairn moments via a new platform: #beathomewithGlencairn.
Glencairn will be revealing more details on how followers and fans can become part of their 20th Anniversary tribute later in the year.
